“Our party demands that the APC administration not sweep this matter under the carpet given the manifest rapport between Kyari and some top APC leaders.

“We urge President Muhammadu Buhari not to ease out this case of corruption but immediately restore the integrity and image of our nation by allowing for a forensic investigation the suspect.

“Moreover, if this Kyari matter is not well handled, it will be a stain the reputation of our police, security system and our nation at large.
