Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) has hit out at those criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration on corruption.
This is coming after Justice Mohammed Idris in his judgment sentenced former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu of Abia state to 12 years in prison over N7.65 billion fraud.
Sagay said; “Those making claims that the All Progressives Congress (APC) members have immunity from being persecuted should apologise to President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC.”
“Everyone of them saying that if you should join APC, you are covered by some immunity for any corruption or wrongdoing and nobody can touch you have been proven wrong.”
“From what has happened in the case of Orji Kalu, we can consider what those people are saying as hate speech.”
“By saying that, what they are doing is creating prejudice, anger and displeasure against the APC government for no just cause.”
“I think they should apologise to this government and to the party for their unbridled and irresponsible opinion on this matter.”
