In a pushback, the PDP described Ganduje as a barefaced treasury looter, who has no moral rectitude to speak on corruption.
The PDP also described as a huge irony that Ganduje, who was seen on a video, with no proven provenance, allegedly stuffing his robe with foreign currency, suspected to be a gratification, could accuse the PDP of corruptive intentions in the Edo State governorship election.
The party, in a statement by Ologbondiyan said it was a paradox that an individual who has earned himself the disgraceful public sobriquet of “gandollar,” after allegedly being caught collecting gratification, would attempt to accuse others of having the intention of looting the treasury of a state.
It said: “Governor Ganduje and other APC leaders are so used to looting public treasury that such is his first mental direction after his inauguration to lead the Edo State governorship campaign.
“Governor Ganduje has further confirmed the real intention of the APC, which is to use their morally embattled candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu (of course, birds of the same feathers flock together) for their desperate effort to regain access to Edo State treasury, after Governor Godwin Obaseki, liberated the state from the stranglehold of APC treasury-looting godfathers.”
