The spokesperson for the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, says the fight against corruption is the party’s own policy The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the search conducted by the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) at the Epe home of ex-governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state.
Recall that the EFCC on Tuesday, August 20, searched the former Lagos state governor’s home around 9:35 am.
The spokesperson for the ruling party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the APC is not joking with its commitment to fight corruption in the country.
According to him, there are no sacred cows in the current administration’s fight against corruption, Premium Times reports.
Issa-Onilu said: “It is about time we knew that the APC government is not joking with its commitment to fight corruption in whatever form it is. This government has demonstrated that there are no sacred cows.
“The naysayer can continue to say what they like but they must be ashamed of themselves by now, knowing that on daily basis, the anti-corruption agencies are proving them wrong.” He said the party hopes that the corruption allegation levelled against Ambode is not true, adding that the party will not compromise its stance on the fight against corruption if the allegation turns out to be true.
The APC spokesperson said: “The fight against corruption is our own policy and there are no sacred cows. We just hope that the allegation against former governor Ambode is not true. If true, this APC government will not bend the rule for any personalities.”
