The All Progressives Congress Youth Congress has taken a swipe at the Deputy National Chairman of the APC, Segun Oni, saying he lacks integrity.
The group also asked him to return the over N500 million he allegedly received from former President Goodluck Jonathan to fund his rerun governorship election in 2009 before accusing anyone of corruption.
The former governor of Ekiti had said Jonathan should be apologising to Nigerians for failing them.
He also said there were no results to show for Jonathan’s efforts in fighting corruption.
However, the youths in a statement said it was the peak of political hypocrisy and immorality for someone like Oni, who benefited from ”corruption” and injustice to speak against corruption.
The youths also advised Oni to resign from his position as the APC Deputy National Chairman if he was serious about his governorship ambition.
The statement read,”Our attention has been drawn to comment made by Chief Segun Oni, asking former President Goodluck Jonathan to rather apologise to Nigerians for failing to fight corruption while in office and we wish to state expressly that he (Oni) does not have moral rights to make such comment.
In 2009, this same Jonathan, who was the Vice President led Segun Oni’s rerun governorship election campaign and provided over N500 million for the election, which was eventually rigged for Oni and his PDP.
Someone provided funds for your election, made sure the election was rigged in your favour and you enjoyed proceed of that corruption, yet, you are now accusing the same person of corruption? That is the height of hypocrisy and we the youths of the APC won’t condone such display of hypocrisy in our party.
Oni will therefore have to first return the campaign fund he received from Jonathan before accusing anyone of corruption.
