Ahead of the upcoming polls, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared the party as free of corrupt leaders who are now within the ranks of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This declaration was made during a political stakeholders’ forum. The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in Ikeja, Lagos organized the forum.
The event was also graced by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the National Orientation Agency (NOA).
The PFN said it would monitor the elections and provide five agents in every polling unit in Lagos.
During the presentation of the parties, the PDP said it had shed its corrupt leaders to the APC.
The statement made by Kunle Okunola, a House of Representatives candidate of the PDP for Ikeja Federal Constituency reads, “We are the only party that went through democratic selection when we were doing the structural replacement of our hierarchy, including the presidential candidate of our party.
“A party that does not practice internal democracy cannot help Nigeria out of the problem it has found itself. We have provided the leadership.
“And the corruption that they put on our neck, we have shed all the corrupt party leaders to the APC and I can say it.
“So, the PDP is free of corruption; APC is the mother of corruption for the past 16 years.”
