Buhari shielding his men from probe, Fayose alleges
Written by Morenike Adebayo on July 18, 2016
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop acting like the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria by shielding his men from probe. This is just as he asked Nigerians to demand the release of the authentic report of the Committee on Audit of Defence Equipment Procurement in the Nigerian Armed Forces.
He described claim by the federal government that the probe panel only looked into procurement and contracts awarded by the military between 2011-2015 because documents regarding procurement from 2007 to 2010 were not available, as a clear indication of his support for corruption. The governor said in a statement on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that anyone that is in President Buhari’s good books can never be adjudged as corrupt even if such a person is caught looting the entire money in Nigeria’s treasury.
