Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Chief Perekeme Kpodo, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute his immediate predecessor, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, and his wife, Patience.

Kpodo made the call today at a news conference in the state capital, Yenagoa. He said the former President, his wife and known associates should be prosecuted for the alleged looting of the resources of the country and associated crimes.

Kpodo, who was the former Interim Chairman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), described as illegal, the acceptance of defectors to APC by the Tiwei Orunimighe-led executive committee.

He claimed that the action provides a cover for a band of corrupt politicians and fake protection against prosecution by Buhari.

Kpodo said that APC’s stance against corrupt members of the last administration of Jonathan is well known, adding that they must be prosecuted.

His words: “As a decent state executive, we consider the attempt to make the APC a dumping ground unacceptable and vexatious.

“APC in the state will not allow the party to become a dumping ground for desperate looters and thieves in need of protection from prosecution.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to order a detailed investigation into the acts of fraud and embezzlement by these defectors and their associates.

“We support the moves by Buhari for the prosecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife, Patience Jonathan, and his known associates for the looting and associated crimes committed against the state.”

Kpodo urged potential defectors to obtain clearance from the ward through to the state level of the party.

He said defectors must show clear record of performance from the parent party before official presentation to the loyalists and progressive supporters of APC.

Kpodo said the APC would soon release a timetable for receiving its teeming supporters and defectors, as well as for the governorship primary election.
