The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it had freed itself from corruption which it has always been accused of by many Nigerians.
The party said all its corrupt leaders and members have been transferred to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), which it said, is now the “mother of corruption”.
The party stated this in Lagos on Thursday during a political stakeholders’ forum put together by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
Different political parties and their candidates had presented their programmes and manifestos to Christian leaders and opinion leaders present at the event, which also had in attendance, representatives of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and National Orientation Agency (NOA), among others.
In his presentation, Kunle Okunola, a House of Representatives candidate of the PDP for Ikeja Federal Constituency, who spoke for the party said, “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 assured that the PDP would restructure Nigeria if voted to return to power in the ccoming election.
Earlier, PFN had said it would monitor the elections and provide five agents in every polling unit in Lagos.
