Ondo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of abusing the privileges of power by prosecuting its members endlessly.

While reacting to the detention of its party chieftains, Clement Faboyede and Modupe Adetokunbo by an Abuja High Court, the PDP through its zonal publicity secretary, Ayo Fadaka, described the allegations leveled against its members as pedestrian and cheap.

“While we are not interested in the politics surrounding this matter, we however wish to state categorically that the APC is merely abusing the privileges of power to persecute the PDP endlessly, this we consider pedestrian and cheap. 

“We reiterate very firmly that these gentlemen are no criminals as they only acted on behalf of the Party, it is the PDP that is in trial here and as a Party, we continue to repose confidence in the ability of the judiciary to adjudicate on this matter,” the statement read in part.

We note the arraignment of Engr Clement Faboyede, PDP Chairman, Ondo State alongside Akogun Tokunbo Modupe, who was the Coordinator of President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Group in our State. It is imperative to clearly underscore the fact that the N500 million upon which this case is built is the campaign fund released by the Party to the Ondo State PDP through the Fidelity Bank and not in any manner a fraudulent issue. It was these gentlemen who signed and withdrew the money on behalf of the Party and this is the reason why the EFCC is prosecuting them. While we are not interested in the politics surrounding this matter, we however wish to state categorically that the APC is merely abusing the privileges of power to persecute the PDP endlessly, this we consider pedestrian and cheap. We reiterate very firmly that these gentlemen are no criminals as they only acted on behalf of the Party, it is the PDP that is in trial here and as a Party, we continue to repose confidence in the ability of the judiciary to adjudicate on this matter.
