It was gathered that the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, has stated that no corrupt person will go free.
He also said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has not sent many people to jail because due process and the rule of law must be adhered to.
Oyegun was speaking in reaction to a recent statement by former President Goodluck Jonathan, where he described the APC as a government of lies and propaganda.
The APC chief told newsmen, “Yes, there is an adage in Benin that when you want to kill a dog, you first of all give the dog a bad name.
“Most people in Nigeria never expected that a new party will come and take over government from a party that has been in power for good 16 years.
“So, it is still a dream to them. But we must face the reality; we came to power to rescue Nigeria from the hands of those who wanted Nigeria’s extinction.
“How can he say it is a lie when you find billions of monies stocked in one person’s account overseas; how can you say it is a lie when millions of Naira are found in overhead tanks of people’s compound?
“How do you justify it when a government wastes billions of monies on electricity yet we do not have electricity because of corruption? How can you say it is a lie?
“How can you justify the fact that a government spent millions of dollars on electricity yet we have an epileptic power supply system in the country?
“The present government inherited multiple problems which we are taking time to solve. These are facts on the table.
“The change is that we are rebuilding, we have a president that insists that things must be done according to the law of the land.
“Buhari wants due process and he is a president that believes in the rule of law. People are complaining that the APC government has not been able to jail the so-called corrupt politicians in PDP government but you do not just send people to jail when he or she has not been found guilty of an offence; the rule of law must be adhered to.
“You are aware that a special court has been established to try cases of corruption; it is a fight that must be won. Nigerians must be patient with us; no corrupt politician will go free.
“We are determined to bring total sanity to Nigeria and we will build a better Nigeria for the coming generation to live in.”
