The fiery governor said that Buhari’s
administration should “just go ahead and carry
out the probe” of the previous administration of
Goodluck Jonathan, rather than making
“announcements in the media.”
This was contained in a statement issued by
his special assistant on public communications
and new media, Lere Olayinka. Fayose alleged
that the current administration was only playing
to the gallery. He urged the government not to
embark on selective probe, saying: “From all
indications, it is obvious that the probe they are
talking about is targeted at some people and if
activities of anti-graft agencies during the
tenure of President Buhari are going to be
selective, the president should know that the
world is watching.”

Fayose said that Jonathan’s curse now is
a consequence of him conducting a a credible
election and handing over power, he therefore
doesn’t deserve to be witch hunted.
“Nigerians should not be probed on the pages
of newspapers. Rather, the anti-graft agencies
should do their jobs quietly, diligently and in
accordance with the laws of the country, not as
dictated by any individual or political party .

is a selective probe, those holding power in
Abuja now should know that what goes round
will surely come round and it is just a matter of
time,” he said.
He then proceeded to tell the current
administration to give more attention to the
Boko Haram terrorism that is currently affecting
the nation worse than before after they took
back five local government areas in the North-
“This is because four years is a very short
period and time is already going. Before you
sleep and wake up, four years will be gone and
Nigerians will rate the government based on
how well the government bettered their lives,
not how many perceived enemies were hunted
with anti-graft agencies. God is already
vindicating Dr Jonathan by elevating those who
worked with him. As opposition party, APC
disparaged Jonathan and those who worked
with him. Now that the party is in power, they
are still doing the same, behaving as if the
party is still in opposition.

“Ironically, the same people the APC vilified are
being elevated at the world stage. Dr Akinwumi
Adesina, who served a Jonathan’s Minister of
Agriculture, is now the African Development
Bank (ADB) president while Arunma Oteh,who
was the Director-General of the Security
Exchange Commission (SEC) under Jonathan is
reported to have been appointed as the World
Bank Vice-President and Treasurer.”
Buhari had since his inauguration promising to
probe the past administration headed by
Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic
