- Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) urged the EFCC to Tinubu over allegations of N160bn tax fraud

Following allegations of N160bn tax fraud, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state and national leader of APC.
PDP said failure of the EFCC to invite and question the ex-governor would prove that the corruption agency had been compromised, Daily Trust reports.
“Nigerians can now see how the same Ibrahim Magu-led EFCC, which rushes to pounce on, arrest and lock up innocent Nigerians, particularly, perceived political opponents of President Buhari, without investigation, has practically gone frozen and toothless because a member of the APC cabal is involved,” the PDP said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Senator Eme Ekaette, representing Akwa Ibom South senatorial zone and former state deputy governor, Valerie Ebe, on Tuesday, September 11, defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that others who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC are retired deputy inspector general of police, Udom Ekpoudom, and former chairman of Eka local government, Francis Ikpon.
The state chairman of APC, Ini Okpobodi, received the defectors at a solidarity district rally and reception held for Obong Nsima Ekere at Eket. Okpobodi said at the occasion that the PDP had virtually collapsed in the state.
