Former Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose spoke out against former President Olusegun Obasanjo over the level of corruption and insecurity in the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC), led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Fayose’s latest comments came in light of Obasanjo’s silence as the country continues to grapple with growing insecurity and allegations of corruption in government institutions.
In a stream of tweets posted via his verified Twitter handle on Saturday, July 25, Fayose questioned why the former Nigerian leader decided to remain silent.
The former Governor further noted that it was because of alleged corruption and insecurity that Obasanjo teamed up with others to impose Nigeria on the President.
Speaking further about Obasanjo’s silence, Fayose said that either the former President is tired, timid, scared, or he is no longer the person people used to know.
Meanwhile, it was reported that the former Governor of Ekiti state called on President Buhari to dismiss Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, and Kemebradikumo Pondei, acting managing Director of the Niger Delta development Commission (NDDC).
Fayose said this in a tweet on Friday, July 25. According to Fayose, the Duo celebrated the success of their drama in the National Assembly with hot pepper soup and a variety of drinks.
“With this level of fraud identified in the NDDC, Buhari should fire Akpabio now, ” Fayose said.
In other news, the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, called nepotism the worst form of corruption.
Sanusi made this statement while speaking at a webinar on “the sustainability of society” on Friday, July 17. According to Sanusi, corruption has negatively affected society.
Sanusi argued that while corruption itself is a problem, the type of corruption is also crucial.
Nepotism, he noted, is the worst kind, because it takes away dignity. He blamed Nepotism for the collapse of the Federal symbol system in Nigeria.
