The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has told President Muhammadu Buhari to stop protecting members of his government from investigation.
According to Fayose, “It is a mark of absolute insincerity and bias for anyone to accept that a justice can be executed on procurement and award of contracts in an organisation without the involvement of the director of procurement.
“It is now obvious to the entire world that anyone that is in President Buhari’s good books can never be declared as corrupt.
“Even if such a person is caught stealing the entire money in Nigeria’s treasury,” Fayose said.
The governor was particularly concerned that there are lots of petitions against APC leaders, but they are continuously ignored.
Fayose also frowned at the petitions relating to the defense arms deal from 2007.
According to Fayose, Buhari has ignored all of these.
According to Ekiti Governor, President Buhari’s anti-corruption war seem targeted at political opponents.
“Buhari’s’ Minister of Interior, Major General Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.) was Chief of Army Staff between 2008 and 2010.
“The current Chief Of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai served as Director of Procurements, Defense Headquarters, from 2012 till May 2015.
“It is a fact that the committee in its terms of reference said it queried all procurement from 2007 to 2015.
“Even the Press Release issued was titled; ‘Third Interim Report of the Presidential Committee on Audit of Defense Equipment Procurement from 2007 to 2015.’
According to Governor Fayose, “The questions Nigerians must now begin to ask President Buhari and his government are these; “Where is the report of Presidential Committee on Audit of Defense Equipment Procurement relating to 2007 to 2010?
“Who doctored the committee report and why?
“Why is Burutai walking free?
“Why is the minister of Interior, Dambauzau walking free?
“What did the investgative report say about their role since they were directly connected with sales and procurement of arms?” Fayose asked.
