Written by Kaka Saratu Poga on October 12, 2017
Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC Prof. Itse Sagay has told the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that he is not afraid of losing his job as the chairman of the advisory body.
Sagay and the APC leadership have been engaged in battle of words following his allegation that the party leadership was associating with alleged corrupt members.
Sagay who said he accepted the position from President Muhammadu Buhari because of his desire to serve the country and not for financial gain, also said the John Odigie-Oyegun-led APC leadership is not comfortable with his utterances and actions because they felt threatened whenever he attacks corrupt politicians.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will not use the criteria set by Sagay in dealing with its members.
the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, said it will not deal with its members based on the recommendations of the professor.
Describing Sagay’s criticism as unfair, Abdullahi said since the PACAC boss had already stated that he is neither a politician nor a member of the APC, he will not be able to appreciate how the party deals with issues that have to do with politicians.
He added that the party can only take action against any corrupt member if a court of competent jurisdiction has pronounced a verdict on such a member.
