The senators, in an advertorial said although it support the moves by the president to eradicate corruption on Nigeria, "the caucus is not happy with the current trend that seems to suggest that the war against corruption is selective and targeted at PDP stalwarts and states.

The current war lacks transparency, fairness to all and appears to be aimed at political adversaries. It is on this ground that we condemn in particular what is happening in Akwa Ibom, Rivers and Abia state where election umpires are daily arrested, their families  and associates hounded , and judicial officers involved in election tribunals intimidated and questioned using trumped up petitions bordering on corruption. Yet these officials were part of the 2015 elections that produced President Buhari an election adjudged to be generally free and fair by the international community."
