The All Progressives Congress has taken a swipe back at the PDP for getting themselves worked up over an alleged plot to arrest Saraki and Ekweremadu.
The APC said, “clear conscience don’t fear accusations” inferring that the PDP might be aware of the rules some of its members have broken and are getting unnecessarily disturbed.
In a release by Yekini Nabena, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, he said;
“The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has repeatedly demonstrated its strict adherence to the rule of law, therefore the alleged plan to arrest or harass the mentioned leaders is hogwash and baseless.
“Clear conscience fears no accusation. Why are PDP leaders afraid of arrest if their conscience is clear? All law-abiding citizens or resident of the country have nothing to fear about arrest.
“However, nobody no matter how highly placed will escape the full wrath of the law if he or she runs fowl of our laws.
“If the Senate President and the tree-climbing Senator are facing criminal charges in our law courts and his Deputy has explanations to make to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for acquisition of numerous properties in Nigeria and abroad through questionable sources, the President Buhari-led APC administration has nothing to do with them.
“The laws of the country are only being applied and they should answer for their acts of infamy.”
