Corruption: Allegations against me pure blackmail Secondus

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has challenged the Federal Government to show concrete evidence to prove that he collected money from former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.

Prince Secondus who stated that he did not want to join issues with the Federal Government on the matter since the case is already ‎in court, accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of resorting to blackmail and media trial to defame and discredit its enemies.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Ike Abonyi, PDP National Chairman‎ noted that the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) contradict themselves on the date the said money was collected.

According to the statement, while Alhaji Mohammad claimed in a press conference on March 29 that Secondus collected the money on February 19, 2015, the EFCC, eighteen days after, said the money was collected on February 9, 2015 just as another version, quoting the same EFCC claimed it was collected February 2, 2015.

“The Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammad and the EFCC couldn’t agree on the date of the purported money collection and whether it was collected by him (Secondus) or by a faceless fictional Chukwura that has no surname,” the statement further noted.

Secondus added that since the case is already in court, the Federal Government should file whatever evidence it has before the court as demanded but regretted that the administration has great contempt for the court and the rule of law.

“I never collected any money from anywhere. I didn’t ask anyone to collect money for me as well and I didn’t sign any voucher to collect any money.

“It is pure blackmail which will never work.

“If they are cooking up anything, with the aim of blackmailing me, it will fail. I know that the task of uprooting this non-performing government would be horrendous. But God is always on the side of the people.

“I can understand the frustration of a party that enjoyed enormous goodwill from Nigerians three years ago but got it squandered with its ‘nepotic’ and insensitive administration.

“No amount of cheap blackmail and treachery will return the APC from the exit gate where Nigerians already pushed them to, awaiting 2019.

“The departure date for the APC has already been announced and the flight schedule would not be cancelled, because Nigerians cannot wait to see them off,” the statement added.

The PDP National Chairman further challenged the government to come out with the vouchers which he was said to have signed, adding that such signature would however be subjected to forensic analysis.

Prince Secondus stated that ‎no amount of blackmail and intimidation would stop him from carrying out the reform of the PDP, as the party is on course to rescue Nigeria from the APC administration.

He said that it was tunfortunate that anti-corruption agency like EFCC founded and nurtured by PDP administration to tackle the issue of corruption in the system had to turn itself into a pawn in the hand of APC administration to witch hunt and harass perceived enemies of government just to impress and keep job.
