The All Progressives Congress, APC, has vowed to investigate the outgoing administration of President Goodluck Jonathan over some “last-minute dubious activities” ahead of the May 29 handover.
The party claimed that the outgoing administration had been looting the nation’s resources, deliberately recruiting into the public service and privatisatising key financial institutions.
In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Sunday, the APC alleged that such actions would have serious repercussions after May 29.
The party claimed to have received reliable information from members of the public about some dubious actions by key officials of the outgoing Jonathan administration.
The statement read, ‘’For example, the National Council on Privatisation, which is headed by the Vice-President, has just approved the financial bid opening for transaction advisers for the privatisation of the three development finance institutions in the country – the Bank of Agriculture, Bank of Industry and Nigeria Commodity Exchange. The question is: What is the rationale for rushing this exercise with just weeks left for this administration?
“Also, there have been reports, not refuted, of a planned hurried recruitment into the Nigeria Immigration Service, after a previous attempt ended in a national tragedy and the fleecing of innocent job seekers by mindless Federal Government officials.
The party further revealed that while the Jonathan administration remains in charge until the midnight of May 29, it was important for the outgoing administration not to create any more problems for the incoming government than it had already done, or to tie the new government’s hands through some suspicious actions.
