Port Harcourt - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday insisted that the former Rivers state governor, Rotimi Amaech and the All Progressives Congress are corrupt, reports Vanguard.
The party in a statement by its Rivers State chapter noted that under Amaechi as governor corruption was legalized and institutionalized.
The PDP was reacting to claims by Amaechi at a function in Abuja that President Muhammadu Buhari is begging him to accept appointment as a Minister of Federal Republic of Nigeria or Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

The party described Buhari’s action as witch-hunting and selective prosecution.
