Presidency, PDP back trial of subsidy cheats

BEFORE now, the deafening silence from both camps on the matter had inevitably spun a web of conspiracy theories alleging complicity and ploy to save their own from a nation braying for their blood over the brazen raid of the commonwealth through the fuel subsidy regime.  But aligning themselves with the public mood yesterday, the Presidency and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) offered their supports for the bid to bring to book all individuals and corporate entities found culpable in the fuel subsidy scam as unearthed by the House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee, which investigated the fraud.

Speaking with the media at the National Assembly yesterday, the Special Adviser to Jonathan on National Assembly Matters, Senator Joy Emodi, assured that the Presidency was on the same page with the House and well meaning citizens on putting on trial all those indicted by the Farouk Lawan-led panel for ripping the nation off through the subsidy initiative.

Also, the PDP, in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, quoted the party’s National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, resolved that “new leadership of our great Party, PDP shall be in the forefront of the battle against corruption and in view of the principled stand and deep commitment of President Goodluck Jonathan on the matter, the National Working Committee (NWC) hereby restates unflinching support for every step so far taken by government to stamp out corruption.”
