Buhari Should Be First On List Of Looters - Fayose
Reactions continue to trail the list of alleged looters released by the Nigeria government.
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is presiding over the most corrupt government in the country's history.
He said the president is protecting looters of the country’s commonwealth, adding that; “Nigerians have seen through their deceit and will no longer buy that fake image of integrity they are trying to sell.”
“With the Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, saying that corruption has become more endemic in Nigeria than it was in the last 16 years, with the country moving 12 places below its rating, a honourable government would have stopped using fight against corruption as its major achievement and releasing names of people that are still under trial as looters just to cover up its failure.”
He said the first list of alleged looters released by the government was politically-motivated and the second one was an afterthought that was done to cover the shame of the government because Nigerians questioned the first list.
Governor Fayose has also reiterated that Nigerians are more interested in their welfare, security of their lives and physical development of the country than tales of concocted lists of corrupt past leaders.
He said; “... the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) never pretended to Nigerians that it had corrupt people in its fold and the party never protected them. Today, the party has gone ahead to offload the corrupt elements into the APC and they were not only accepted gladly into the party, they were given prominent appointments by the President.”
