Former Governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose once again undermined the authority of President Muhammadu Buhari to fight corruption in the country.
His Latest comments come in light of investigations into the Niger Delta development Commission (NDDC).
Officials of the NDDC have been under probe for mismanagement of funds allocated to the commission which is under the supervision of the Ministry of Niger Delta.
The Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio, was one of those who made presentations before a House of Representatives committee investigating the allegations on Monday, July 20, 2020.
Speaking on Akpabio’s alleged role in the scandal, Fayose said the minister has further made a mess of President Buhari’s famous self-professed fight against corruption.
He said the fight is only a public ruse and targets only members of the opposition that are not in Buhari’s ‘family of corruption’.
“And like I have maintained, the only thing being done with the so-called fight against corruption is to persecute opposition figures.
“Rogues all over the world, the moment they decamp to APC, they will be accorded the prime of place in their govt,” he posted on Twitter.
The former governor further called on Buhari to not sweep the scandal under the rug to protect anyone.
“Nigerians want to see its end. Akpabio and others must be fully investigated and charged to court if found culpable,” he said.
