In its reaction, the All Progressives Congress on Monday dismissed as ridiculous the allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party that the President had ordered for the detention of Fayose.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, spoke in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja.
Issa-Onilu said, “the PDP should stop being ridiculous. There are agencies of government that have the mandate over any issue that has to do with anti-corruption.
“They have guidelines for their operations and whatever they choose to do with anybody that runs afoul of the law. It is going to be ridiculous to start linking the name of the President to the operations of an agency of government.
“If Fayose has any issue with any agency of government, he has the responsibility to face the agency and sort out whatever issue he has with them without linking the President to it.
“It is Fayose’s stock in trade to throw in the President to any issue; he feels so important and thinks the President is aware of whatever is going on around Fayose.”
The APC spokesman asked the governor to go to the EFCC to clear his name and stop dragging the office and person of the President into it.
“Mind you, the APC as the ruling party does not trade in impunity, which is not our style. If he has any issue, he should go and face it,” he said.
