A member representing Riyom constituency under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Daniel Dem, has condemned the rising political tension of anti-corruption crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari, which he thinks, is snowballing into lopsided attacks targeted at PDP chieftains.
He was speaking to newsmen in Jos over the 2.1 billion naira scam of arms deal of Dasukigate and the anti-corruption crusade.
According to him, if the money is meant for a particular purpose as demanded to be channeled and somebody decided to redirect that money for personal use, government should arrest them to face the rule of law.
He said that, “there is nothing wrong with federal government investigating money laundering, and as a member, I encourage the fight against corruption in the country; but people should have confidence in the leadership of APC government.”
According to him, whoever is found wanting should be arrested to face the wrap of law. He condemned the way and manner the PDP spokesman, Aliseh Metuh, was brought in court handcuffed, saying that, “it is politically motivated to tarnish and destroy the PDP legacy.”
He assured to deliver a qualitative representation of his people in his constituency by initiating bills that will impact positively in the lives of the people.
According to him, the House has resumed for 2016 session with much desire to better the suffering of the rural populace with a view to concretely balance grey areas of development and peace building process.
