The organisation said: “We are not surprised to read the statements by the PDP, throwing tantrums and accusing the All Progressives Congress (APC) of everything possible and for anything happening in the country. The statements smack of the party’s inability to see and appreciate good governance and strong institutions.

“For instance, the investigation by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) of Senate President Saraki Bukola is a simple case of an institution doing its work. If Saraki, a member of the PDP, has a case to answer, let him do so. An innocent man with no skeletons in his cupboard has nothing to fear.

“Nigeria has institutions with the mandate of investigating fraud and financial malfeasance. If they find a person to be a suspect in the breach of any of our laws in this regard, they would act accordingly, investigate and prosecute, where necessary.

“It is unfortunate that the PDP is not used to seeing institutions working and is consequently confused by the sight of them working without being tele-guided.

“President Buhari respects institutions and does not interfere with their work. He believes that institutions must be allowed to do their work and not be meddled with.

“The PDP is not used to this as, during its 16 years in government, it employed government institutions as tools for bullying critics and silencing opposition.”
