The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode’s statement against Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The party said this while reacting to Ambode’s statement on Sanwo-Olu, a governorship aspirant of the APC at a press conference in Lagos on Sunday.
Ambode had earlier stated that Sanwo-Olu was unfit to govern the state, claiming that the latter has being arrested for spending fake dollars in the United States and also underwent rehabilitation at Gbagada General Hospital.
Reacting PDP Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a den of fraudsters and election riggers.
The statement read: “With Ambode’s comment the whole world can see that the APC is nothing but a den of fraudsters and corrupt persons who not only cheated their way to power through lies and propaganda in 2015 but have also continued to bleed and defraud our nation with humongous sleazes and massive corruption in very high places.
“That is why the APC will have no scruples to project persons of questionable character and those with allegations of corruption hanging on the necks as their National Chairman and governorship aspirants.
“We challenge President Muhammadu Buhari to show his claimed integrity by ordering an open investigation into this huge allegation against his party’s governorship aspirant.
“This ugly trend in the APC and ensure that they throw this undesirable party to the dustbin of history, come 2019.”
