The People Democratic Party has challenged Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to name corrupt people within its ranks.

The party was reacting to the claim by Osinbajo that the PDP administration at the federal level destroyed Nigeria’s economy.

The party also asked the Vice President to provide proof of his allegations against PDP members.

The party's National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Thursday argued that the Buhari administration should have used the evidence it had, if it actually had any, to arrest and try the suspects.

Ologbondiyan said: “We challenge him to stop branding figures. He should mention names of those whom he claims corrupted themselves,” the PDP spokesperson said.

“If he cannot mention their names, and he cannot cause their arrest and he cannot even list these people, he should keep quiet.”

He advised Osinbajo to stop blaming the party for corruption over the years.

“Our advice to the Vice President, as a professor of law, he knows the pathway to follow when you accuse somebody of corruption.

“It is not enough to come to the public arena, more so as a man of God, and begin to make an allegation about corruption always,” the PDP spokesperson said.
