In the past week, Keyamo had called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and other relevant agencies to launch a probe on Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.
The Punch reports that he also filed a suit before a court of jurisdiction against officials of the agencies asking the court to mandate the EFCC and the ICPC and Code of Conduct Bureau to arrest Atiku over alleged corruption cases after he had issued a 72-hour ultimatum to these organisations.
However, in his reaction, Bwala said the PDP believes President Buhari is committed to a free and fair election process and would stand for what is right.
“We are calling on the president, because we believe that he is committed to a free and fair process (election), to immediately sack the minister…for abusing the office that he has because that office is being paid for by taxpayers’ money…”
