The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was spreading false information about the purported plan to arrest Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena also said the victory of its candidates in the just concluded bye elections in Katsina, Bauchi and Kogi states was a clear indication of the growing confidence in the Buhari government.
Nabena wondered why the PDP and its officials were afraid of their own shadow if they have no skeletons in their cupboard, saying that a clear conscience will fear no accusation.
The statement reads: “The People’s Democratic Party (PDP, in its latest round of bogus claims has alleged that the Federal Government plans to arrest the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
“We had thought that by now, the PDP would be tired of its lame opposition strategy of false alarms, baseless and frivolous accusations.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has repeatedly demonstrated its strict adherence to the rule of law, therefore the alleged plan to arrest or harass the mentioned leaders is hogwash and baseless.
“Clear conscience fears no accusation. Why are PDP leaders afraid of arrest if their conscience is clear? All law-abiding citizens or resident of the country have nothing to fear about arrest. However, nobody no matter how highly placed will escape the full wrath of the law if he or she runs fowl of our laws.
