APC made the call in a statement issued yesterday by the National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, on the  $5.7 million alleged Nigerian arms money seized by South Africa.
The party said the issues surrounding the first seizure of $9.3 million have not been resolved and now this latest scandal.
The party wondered why the government would want to turn Nigeria to a rogue nation by taking ownership of money laundering and other acts of illegality.
‘’Again, Mr. President, Nigerians are urging you to please come clean over these cash-for-arms scandals. They want you to answer critical questions on the legality of your administration’s repeated conduct,” the APC said.
The party also asked whether the funds being ferried up and down by the administration were appropriated by the National Assembly, or whether they are part of the missing $20 billion oil money.
It berated the federal government for issuing what it termed childish and immature threats against South Africa and its investments in the country, instead of addressing the pertinent questions surrounding the illegal arms procurement deals.
