According to The Authority, Igbonugo said it is the party's strategy to win Nigerians to join its fold.

He said people were being vic­timised for their past political opinions, adding that the chances of the APC in the 2019 general elections depend much on how they handle the anti-corruption war without prejudice or nepotism.

His words: “While the government continues to do otherwise, those politically exposed in­dividuals will continue to be impediment, bad influence and distraction to ‘change begins with me’ until they are reined in according to the rule of law.

“By the way, in a country where more than 85 percent of the population is said to be corrupt and all institutions corrupt, it will be futile to fight the hydra head­ed monster without fighting dirty.”

He further stated that Nigeria can never win the war against corruption through media trials, selective justice or through ‘rob my back I rob your back tendencies either’.

“APC will kiss 2019 good­bye if those politically ex­posed persons whose cases had been lingering in court since the days of Nihu Riba­du as EFCC boss knows no finality.

“It will be an irony if the same tinted individuals become the arrow head of APC campaign come 2019 when Nigerians will know to do the needful,” Igbonugo concluded.

Meanwhile, a senior lecturer at the Nigerian Institute of Journalism, Mr Amaso Jack has called on the Muhammadu Buhari administration to initiate a well thought-out policy to enhance its anti-corruption fight.

According to Jack, the anti-corruption fight without a policy, is like the blind folded symbol of the judiciary, to identify those coming to justice.
