The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the former Adamawa State Governor, Bala Ngilari, on his victory at the Appeal Court.

Ngilari was discharged and acquitted on Wednesday of corruption charges levelled against him.

A statement released by National Publicity Secretary, PDP National Caretaker Committee, Dayo Adeyeye, on Saturday in Abuja, said the victory had once again affirmed PDP’s earlier position, that the anti-corruption war was a vendetta targeted at former leaders and members of the party and other perceived enemies of the government.

“These innocent men and women have been harassed, intimidated and subjected to harrowing legal prosecution simply to score cheap political points and cow the opposition into silence,” it read in part.

Adeyeye also said that the former Minister for Niger Delta Affairs and PDP agent in the 2015 Presidential Election, Elder Godsday Orubebe, was wrongly accused of fraud to the tune of N1.97billion.

“He was later discharged and acquitted by Justice Olukayode Adeniyi of the FCT High Court on April 4, 2017,” he added.
