PDP National Chairman Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has said he would not disown his son, Mahmud, over his involvement in the alleged fuel subsidy scam.
Tukur said he is not perturbed by the  criticisms expressed  by the public and would wait for the outcome of the trial.
He spoke with reporters at the State House, Abuja, shortly after a visit of the Muslim community in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), led by Vice President Namadi Sambo, to President Goodluck Jonathan.
The PDP chairman said if the court finds his son guilty of the alleged charges,  Mahmud would face the wrath of the law.
Mahmud is facing trial with others for  allegedly stealing the oil subsidy fund.
Tukur said his son is an adult, who is old enough to take responsibilities for his actions.
He said: “He is my son and I will never disown him. My son is an adult andit is only the court that can determine whether he is guilty or not. Justice is not about public opinion, it is about the court’s verdict. Whoever is found guilty would be so dealt with. If he is not, we will know.’’
On the Eid-el-Fitri celebration, Tukur described this year’s fasting as “very unique”, noting that the Ramadan month had five Fridays, which he said could  take about  50 years to occur.
He said the celebration was also unique because the day fell on a Sunday, so both Muslims and Christians are praying together for peace, unity and progress in the nation.
Tukur said: “All religions have asked us to pray for peace.  May be God has shown us the key. In the Bible, it is said that ‘knock and I will open’. In the Quran, it is ‘if you call me, I will answer’. So this is very unique. We pray to Almighty God for this country to have peace and unity.’’
