Return of ‘Looted’ Funds : Buhari is a liar, he should stay at home to govern – Fayose


Read the press statement below…
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has
carpeted President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim
that many of those who looted the public
treasuries in the government of former President
Goodluck Jonathan had started returning the
stolen funds to the government, saying the
President should rather stay at home to govern
the country instead of junketing around the globe
and acting like a saint before the international
community.
The governor challenged the President to tell
Nigerians how much was returned and the looters
who returned the stolen funds, adding that “Since
the purported looted funds belong to the Federal
Republic of Nigeria, it ought to have been paid into
the Federation Account and shared by the Federal,
State and Local Government.”
Special a$$istant to the Governor on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka,
said in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday
that Governor Fayose advised President Buhari to
tackle the collapsed economy of the country
headlong instead of going from one country to
another, casting aspersion on Nigerians with his
sing-song of fighting corruption.
He said the President’s attitude was yet to change
from that of 1984 when he was military Head of
State, adding that; “Buhari’s statement in Tehran,
Iran that it was easier for him as a military Head of
State in 1984 to arrest corrupt individuals and put
them in protective custody was a pointer to the fact
that he has not changed from the dictator that he
was then.
“The truth is that Buhari did not fight corruption in
1984. Rather, he persecuted great Nigerians,
especially the likes Chief Adekunle Ajasin, Chief
Ambrose Ali, Chief Bisi Onabanjo, Alhaji Lateef
Jakande and Chief Bola Ige, who served the people
meritoriously. “Is Buhari justifying the
imprisonment of Dr Alex Ekwueme, who was only
the Vice President or All Progressives Congress
(APC) leader like Chief Bisi Akande, who only
served as a Deputy Governor?”
While urging the President to stop acting like the
sole-administrator of Nigeria and the only honest
man among Nigerians, Governor Fayose said
“Nigerians are desirous of concrete developments,
not rhetoric about fight against corruption that is
only being used to persecute perceived political
enemies of the President both in the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) and within the APC.
“As at today, Nigerians are F@ced with serious
hardship occasioned by prolonged fuel scarcity
that the Federal Government does not have any
solution to. Multi-national companies are laying-off
thousands of workers while contractors working
for the Federal Government have left their sites.
Yet, what we get to hear from the President is noise
in foreign lands about non-existing fight against
corruption. “Honestly, this President should get to
work and stop lying to Nigerians and the
international community.”
