Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of fighting his perceived political foes under the guise of fighting corruption.
He said Buhari was trying to make sure that no opposition politician would be strong enough financially to contest against him in 2019.
Fayose’s aide on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, quoted his principal, who spoke on AIT Kaakaki program, Friday, as questioning the President’s directive to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami to investigate the Department of State Services (DSS) report on the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
He said: “Magu was indicted by their own DSS and they are still saying the AGF should investigate- is AGF the police? After Magu had been indicted by the DSS, what are they investigating again? Are they saying DSS report is no longer credible?
“As far as I am concerned, President Buhari is not fighting any corruption. He is fighting his political foes. They are just trying to make all Nigerians paupers so that when they share N1,000 at the polling units, it will be like N1m.
“God is a God of single-standard, not double-standard. This Buhari’s government is a govt of double-standard.”
He lamented that President Buhari had returned the country to 1984, saying, “When you see my past, you can project my future. There can be no future without the past. What is happening in Nigeria now are the same as 1984.
“May be we should even return to that past because in that past, Dollar was N200 and one bag of rice was N8,000. If nothing was wrong with the Old Testament, there would not have been any need for the New Testament.They promised us a new testament, let it be a new testament indeed.
“Nigeria and Nigerians don’t need blackmailers in government. Most of those in the APC now have been in the PDP. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who is their landlord was president for eight years under the PDP. My brother, Aminu Tambuwal who is now the governor of Sokoto State was Speaker of the House of Representatives as PDP member.
“What then are they talking about? “He who lives in glass house should not throw stones. Nigeria is a country where the common man knows when you are deceiving them. When Nigerians are suffering, you are spending N2 billion on entertainment at Aso Rock. It is amazing that the president is still complaining close to two years that he won election.”
On payment of workers salary, the governor said, “Apart from Lagos, I’m the next governor owing less in terms of salary. I’m conscious about the well-being of my people. If I have the resources of most states, I will turn Ekiti beyond what we are doing now.”
