The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says President-elect Bola Tinubu has no moral justification to speak on the issue of corruption.

The party said this while reacting to Tinubu’s promise to fight corruption.

While addressing a press conference at the party headquarters in Abuja on Friday, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, said the statement by Tinubu is “completely sacrilegious and an assault on the sensibility of Nigerians, having regards to his records of alleged corruption and having been described variously as an embodiment of corruption in his public life.”
