- The ruling APC through Farooq Aliyu claimed that it was not aware of the rot in the country when it took over power
- According to him, the level of corruption is alarming, even to the extent of fighting back
- Meanwhile, Aliyu said the APC is trying its best to reposition the country
Farooq Aliyu, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain and former minority leader, House of Reps has revealed that the party was ignorant of the level of corruption in Nigeria before they took power.
He disclosed this while appearing as a guest on Channels Television. According to Aliyu, the party did not know that there was monumental rot in the Nigerian system.
The APC chieftain claimed the level of rot is so much that whenever the administration tries to bring changes, corruption would find a way to fight back.
Specifically, Aliyu blasted Nigeria's former vice president. He said when Atiku Abubakar was at the helm of affairs, some funds were misappropriated.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Engr Adeola Sosanwo, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state defected to the ruling APC.
Sosanwo who was the PDP's senatorial candidate for Ogun East in 2019 said he decided to join the ruling APC so as to work with Governor Dapo Abiodun in moving Ogun state further on the path of progress.
Legit.ng gathers that the former PDP chieftain has picked up his APC registration card at Ward 3, Sagamu.
Similarly, Taiwo Adisa, the chief press secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, alleged that the APC is plotting to lure his principal to the party.
Adisa claimed the leaders of the ruling party were aware that they could not raise any candidate that can match Makinde and that is the reason they want to lure him by all means.
However, Adisa, who made this known in a statement on Monday, March 8, said that the plot to lure Makinde to the party did not come as a surprise, claiming that the APC was fascinated by the governor’s achievements despite the challenges present.
