Crisis Deepens As PDP Build Three Toilets With N12m Realised From Forms

The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has deepened following the report that the main opposition party used N12 million for the construction of three toilets.

The fund used for the construction of the restroom was realised by PDP from the sale of forms in its primaries for the 2023 elections.

Sources disclosed that the contract which was awarded to a national officer of the party has steered controversy.

According to sources, some deputy national chairmen of the party are pissed by the development and wondered why such an amount would be spent on three toilets.

Punch disclosed that it got a copy of the message complaining about the controversial contract from the WhatsApp group of Concerned PDP Vanguard for Change.

The message sent to stakeholders, NEC, BoT and all PDP caucuses was titled, “N12 million of struggling PDP members money from form sale spent on three toilets, making it N4 million (each) for one toilet.”

The statement reads, “The PDP we know under ex-President Obasanjo and Jonathan was a party that Ministers resign from corruption allegations; a party that the PDP Speaker Dimeji Bankole was in court for corruption under a PDP administration.

“The PDP as a party has zero tolerance for corruption, especially when it becomes public. The party had always been concerned about its public image.

“So what kind of PDP do we have now with Senator Ayu’s outright corruption and abuse of office being celebrated by the enemies of PDP and our Presidential candidate?

“Members want our presidential candidate to win. We have laboured too much for PDP to allow one man to come to destroy the party and kill the morale of members for our presidential campaign.”
