Mr. Adamu Mustapha, National Auditor of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has denied accusing the National Chairman of the party, Mr Uche Secondus of financial impropriety.
Mustapha said this when he addressed newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.
He also denied alleging any form of misdemeanor against any member of National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
He spoke against the background of reports in some sections of the media centered around a memo he issued alleging irregularities in contract awards and other allegations raised against the Secondus led leadership of the party.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG had reported that among other things that Mustapha had claimed ignorance of several financial dealings in the party that ran into billions of naira.
Clarifying himself at the news conference, he said that his allegations did not amount to the point of accusing Secondus of impropriety.
“My attention has been drawn to misleading reports in a section of the media on three memos I presented to the NWC for deliberation.
“To say the least, I am shocked that routine memos can be so mischievously misrepresented in the media ostensibly to achieve a sinister purpose against our party.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all the issues raised in the memos were exhaustively deliberated in the NWC meeting.
“The deliberation was conclusive because on all the items raised, approvals were sought and granted by both the NWC and the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our great party.
“I want to state clearly, that I did not make any allegations of any form of financial impropriety against the National Chairman, neither did I made allegation of any form of misdemeanor against members of the NWC,” he said.
Mustapha said that the NWC was not divided as it was working in the collective interest of PDP insisting that he did not accuse Secondus of impropriety.
He also urged media practitioners to always crosscheck facts, before going to press to avoid misleading the public.
