The spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo has declared that the defections of corrupt politicians from other political parties into the the ruling All Progressive Congress , APC will not prevent them from prosecution
The lawyer made this declaration in Port Harcourt, on Wednesday, during a symposium entitled “Corruption: An issue in Nigeria’s Development crisis”.
According to him, some politicians who erroneously thought that defecting from other parties into the ruling APC could shield them from prosecution had been disappointed because they would not escape the wrath of the law.
He gave examples of former Governor Joshua Dariye of Plateau State and others who were jailed.
“Unlike during the previous administration when there were calls from the presidency on EFCC chairmen to hands off investigation of party loyalists, President Buhari does not do that. Once you have a case of corrupt, no matter how close you are to the President he never interfered,” he said.
