Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari administration is nothing but a government of double standard which has been engaged only in fighting his perceived political foes under the guise of fighting corruption.
The governor who was recently commended for his boldness by the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, added that Buhari has been busy doing everything possible to ensure that no opposition politician will be financially strong enough to contest against him in 2019.
He said for the country to move forward, “the President must create opportunities beyond political consideration. As it is, the body language of the President speaks volume and must change.”
According to his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose, who was speaking on a TV program on Friday, questioned the rationale behind 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.
“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 govt is a govt of double-standard,” Fayose said.
