Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti has called lies all reports of President Muhammadu Buhari that those who loot Nigeria had started returning stolen money back to the government.

Fayose said Buhari chose rather to be junketing around the world and acts like a some saint in front of international communities, instead of staying at home and govern the country.

Fayose asked the president to explain how much is the said returned stolen money and those who returned them. He added that such money should be made open for all to see since it belongs to the three tiers of government.

In the statement issued through his spokesperson, Lere Olaiyinke, Fayose advised President Muhammadu Buhari to hit the ground running, first by tackling the collapsed economy instead of casting aspersion on Nigerians. President’s behaviour is nothing different from what he was as a military Head of State, Fayose said.


“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,” Mr. Fayose said.

“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?”

Fayose urged Buhari to stop acting as if he’s the only honest man in Nigeria and as the sole administrator. He also said Nigerians are waiting to see concrete developments, but not rhetoric which are targetted against his political opponents, those in PDP and within APC.


“As at today, Nigerians are faced with serious hardship occasioned by prolonged fuel scarcity that the Federal Government does not have any solution to. Multinational 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.

Fayose closes his statement by telling Buhari to get to work and stop lying to Nigerians and international communities.
