The Kwara State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state of allegedly moving huge sums of money from government accounts into private bank accounts for subsequent disbursement to induce voters in the gubernatorial and house of assembly elections.
Director-General of the Party’s Governorship Campaign Council in Kwara, Professor Ali Ahmad made the accusation at a press conference in Ilorin on Thursday.
He said the PDP have correct and factual information about how political office holders, private individuals outside government, influential people in the society and even bureaucrats receive huge money from government accounts.
Professor Ali said the new financial regime being promoted by the APC government in the state has also ensured there is an acute scarcity of cash and so the people involved in what he called scam are being forced to transact this alleged fraudulent business using the banks.
The DG reminded the alleged involved individuals that the alleged scam amounts to diverting Kwara State government money to fund political and partisan activities.
