By Lawrence Olaoye

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday, threw its weight behind the National Assembly in its resolve to expose corruption in government agencies through probes of their activities.
The party in a press statement made available to newsmen and signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, read in part “In line with the resolve of the Dr. Bamanga Turkur led National Working Committee that the new leadership of our great Party, PDP shall be in the fore front of the battle against corruption and in view of the principled stand and deep commitment of President Goodluck Jonathan on the matter, the National Working Committee (NWC), hereby restates unflinching support for every step so far taken by government to stamp out corruption.
“In this vein, the National Working Committee identifies with the various probes by the National Assembly in exercise of its legislative oversight functions.
“Specifically, the National Working Committee welcomes the probe by the House of Representatives into the management of the petroleum subsidy.  While the NWC awaits the consummation of all due processes in line with fair hearing to ensure that only the guilty suffers, the PDP will continue to encourage the National Assembly to take necessary measures that will help stamp out corruption.”
