Kenneth Okonkwo, the Popular Nollywood actor and politician, has claimed that some members of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC steal public funds in order for them to buy the party’s nomination forms to contest for political posts.
Okonkwo who revealed this on Monday said it in an interview with the newsmen, ‘Kakaaki.’
The politician went further to say that he had he had rejected the ruling party, APC even before denouncing them as being part of the party.
It was recalled that Okonkwo who announced his exit from ruling party, APC in July said, “I’ve already ruled out the failures of APC so I rejected APC when I was in APC. I never agreed to pay their nomination fee because I believed that it was as a result of corrupt tendencies.
“For you to tell a man to pay as nomination fee an amount that four years of his salary cannot cover and you are telling me you are fighting corruption, which corruption? Why do you think people are stealing 109billion Naira in an APC-led government, the person that is suppose to guard it, because they need to have such money because even if you want to contest, they’ll be asking you for billions to contest.
“So I rejected APC while I was in APC but you have to wait for an alternative, for another option, that will accommodate your own beliefs and remember, I resigned from APC before talking about any other party and when I saw a new Nigeria about to emerge from Labour Party, what I have prayed, what I wished for. It was only natural that I gravitate around it and that was what happened. So I was very sentimentally attached to the redemption of this country and I really thought that APC was going to provide that.
“When President Muhammadu Buhari was a military head of state, you know what happened? He was paying our debt with crude oil and people said he maintained his own salary. Look at what is happening now. He has borrowed us into bondage, their debt cannot even be serviced by the entire revenue.”
