PDP calls for immediate unfreezing of Benue, Akwa-Ibom accounts

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called for immediate unfreezing of the official accounts of Akwa Ibom and Benue states blocked by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Wednesday in Abuja called on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to immediately order the EFCC to unfreeze the accounts.

He described the action of the anti-graft agency as a direct attack on innocent Nigerians in the two states.

Ologbondiyan described the action as illegal, unconstitutional, overtly wicked and unjustifiable under any laws and practice of Nigeria.

He advised the presidency not to hide under the EFCC to unleash punishment and hardship on the people in states perceived to be opposed to the All Progressives Congress 2019 re-election bid.

It was gathered that the two states had earlier said their accounts had been frozen by the EFCC. The anti-graft agency, however, is yet to speak on the reasons for its decision.
