The Deputy National Office of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has distanced itself from some of its members facing investigations.
The PDP National Secretary, Olisa Metuh is under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Crimes Commission for receiving money from the Office of the former National Security Adviser.
Dr Bello Haliru, the acting Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees is also under investigation.
The Party has released a press statement distancing itself from the ongoing investigations and said that the allegations were levelled towards the individuals and not the party.
The Party said the individuals involved “must bear full responsibility for their actions and must henceforth refrain from dragging the name of the party into the mud”.
The statement pledged support for “the anticorruption campaign” and called for Metuh and Bello to step aside.
It asked the Board of trustees to “prevail on the two accused persons to honorably step aside until they clear their names”.
