The caucus in a statement, yesterday, issued through its South-East caucus leader of the party in the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South) said the PDP caucus did not at anytime discuss Senator Bola Tinubu at its meeting.

Senator Abaribe, who noted that the Senate caucus of the PDP would not descend to the level of attacking individuals or institutions for the sake of vendetta, said: “It is far from the truth. We did not at anytime discuss Senator Tinubu at our meeting and nobody accused the EFCC of anything.”

A news report, yesterday, had indicated that the PDP senators had vowed to fight Tinubu and the EFCC for colluding to destroy its members.
