The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has maintained that all its corrupt leaders have been transferred to the ruling All Progressives Congress, claiming it is now free of corruption.
The party made this revelation at a political stakeholders’ forum organised by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria in Ikeja, Lagos.
PDP was represented by Kunle Okunola at the event, which was attended by representatives of the Independent National Electoral Commission and the National Orientation Agency.
During the presentation of the parties, the PDP said it had flushed out its corrupt leaders to the APC.
“We are the only party that went through democratic selection when we were doing the structural replacement of our hierarchy, including the presidential candidate of our party.
“A party that does not practice internal democracy cannot help Nigeria out of the problem it has found itself. We have provided the leadership.
“And the corruption that they put on our neck, we have shed all the corrupt party leaders to the APC and I can say it.
“So, the PDP is free of corruption; APC is the mother of corruption for the past 16 years,” he said.
Okunola, who is also the House of Representatives candidate of the PDP for Ikeja Federal Constituency, said the party would restructure the country.
