EFCC witch-hunting ‘hardworking’ Kwankwaso – NNPP

The National Youth Leader of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Auwal Musa, has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, of politically witch-hunting the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso.


Musa said the EFCC has no justification to probe Kwankwaso.


Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the youth leader said investigating an ‘honest and hardworking’ person like Kwankwaso will only amount to a waste of time.


Musa pointed out that the action was instigated by some political rivals to tarnish Kwankwaso’s image.


He said: “I challenge EFCC to come up with facts on the allegations; otherwise, we consider it an attempt to witch-hunt and victimise him.


“Why did the EFCC wait this long to investigate him, nine years after leaving office and also why investigate party affairs?


“Go to Kano and see what he did as governor, check his records as a Defence Minister and a Senator.”


Musa urged EFCC to disregard any petition written against Kwankwaso by any politician or any associate.
