The Etiki State Governor, Ayodele
Fayose, has on Friday night, made a shocking revelation that President
Muhammadu Buhari is the Life Patron of corruption in Nigeria.
Fayose maintained that President
Muhammadu Buhari must stop being hypocritical about his fight against
corruption, and rid his government of corrupt elements first.
“Someone needs to tell the President
that Nigerians no longer believe in his anti-corruption fight, because
he harbours the most corrupt Nigerians in his government”, Fayose said.
Recall, that Buhari had on Thursday, in
Abuja, during the presentation of the book: “Making Steady Sustainable
Progress”, said that any public official caught in corrupt practices,
will go to jail.
Reacting through a
statement on Friday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications
and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose asked: “How many of those
indicted of corruption in President Buhari’s government has he jailed?
Is it not the height of hypocrisy for a President that is using APC
broom to sweep corruption involving his men under the carpet, to be
talking about jailing anyone caught stealing public fund?”
The Governor, who insisted that
President Buhari was only hiding under anti-corruption fight to harass
his perceived political foes, added: “We have a President who is the
Life Patron of Corruption in Nigeria. His government is not only
corrupt, the government itself is corruption! Sadly, our President is
still carrying on with the mindset that Nigerians are still listening to
his lyrics of ‘we are fighting corruption’.
