Seized $43m: Do your job professionally, stop entertaining Nigerians – PDP mocks EFCC


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has mocked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, saying it was established to wage war against corruption and not to entertain Nigerians.

PDP made the remark while reacting to monies recently discovered by the anti-graft agency in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos State with no information about the owners.

In a series of tweets on its social media, the former ruling party claimed that the ongoing President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft war has lost focus.

PDP maintained that it was embarrassing for EFCC to keep finding money in apartments and offices without owners.

Accusing EFCC of refusing to reveal the “true identity” of owners of the flat where the money was discovered, the party also urged the anti-graft agency to tell Nigerians the owners of the funds discovered at Kaduna airport, Victoria Island and Balogun market in Lagos state.

The tweet reads,“The PDP administration established the EFCC to fight corruption effectively & efficiently and not to entertain Nigerians.

“The anti-corruption fight under the APC govt has become comedy. The EFCC now discovers funds in apartments and offices that have no owners.

“It is preposterous to imagine that the last four seizures coincidentally have no known owners. This is most unfortunate and embarrassing.

“Who are the owners of N49m at Kaduna Airport, N448m at LEGICO Mall, N250m in Balogun Market and $43.4m, N23.2m & £27,000 in Osborne Road?

“The EFCC must also tell Nigerians the total amount they have recovered in the last 2 years & provide verifiable accounts of recovered funds.”
