The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has called on the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, to resign following his son's alleged involvement in the fuel subsidy scam.
National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said Bamanga should resign to relief himself of the huge moral burden placed on him by his continued stay in office and ensure that the trial of suspects in the scam go unimpeded.
Mohammed said, "It is important to say here that the fuel subsidy scam trial will be held in two courts: the court of law and the court of public opinion. While Alhaji Bamanga Tukur is not facing any charges in the court of law over the scam, he is definitely a star suspect in the court of public opinion. That is why many Nigerians are already insinuating that nothing will come out of the trial, especially as far as his son is concerned. This is an allusion to the influence bestowed upon him by his high office."
