The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has charged the EFCC to immediately prosecute all those who were indicted by the House of Representatives report on fuel subsidy management.
He said in a statement personally signed by him, that the party endorsed the position of President Goodluck Jonathan that all persons involved in the fuel subsidy fraud would be prosecuted.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in full support of the position of the President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for a drastic action to be taken against fraudsters and any person discovered to be involved.
“You are all aware that the report exposed monumental fraud and corruption in the oil sector. The National Assembly should be encouraged to carry out such investigations to assist in the fight against corruption,” Bamanga said.
The party chief said that he was happy that the public hearing organised by the House of Representatives on fuel subsidy provided Nigerians the opportunity to express their feelings and to make meaningful contributions during the probe and noted that this was not only commendable but signified the beginning of a new order.
