Corruption: We don't owe anyone an apology, APC says

13 January 2016, 07:01

Lagos – The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has come out in the open to say it owes no one an apology, as it pushes forward with President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.

According to Punch, the party's national chairperson, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said APC's position was that the rot in the country should be cleansed, "irrespective of whose ox was gored".

Odigie-Oyegun's remarks came after senior PDP officials raised concern that the government's drive against corruption was selective.

"We must get used to the fact that in the process of cleansing this nation, there is going to be a lot to be done. The APC was not in office at the national level in the last 16 years. So, the issue of whether somebody is PDP or not PDP does not arise. We have a nation to cleanse," Odigie-Oyegun was quoted as saying.
