The People’s Democratic party has reacted to the ongoing trials of former petroleum minister, Diezani Allison Madueke and other members of the party who were significant players in Ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet.
At a press conference in the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, Spokesman of the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye stated that the party will remain ‘silent’ on the trials but chided the EFCC for organizing media trials without securing convictions from a court of law.
“The only thing you need to do today is to defect to the APC and all your sins would be forgiven. All APC members are saints and others are sinners. How can the EFCC make allegations and convict us by itself? It is the one making allegations and it is the one convicting people.
Until a court of competent jurisdiction pronounces the suspects guilty, they remain just suspects and innocent as well. So, we won’t talk about those issues.If there is a genuine case against her or any other person, please go to court and establish that they are corrupt.
You can’t just claim that you have found someone with money you suspect was illegally acquired and pronounce such person guilty. You need to go to court and establish it,”
