Be Bold Enough To Probe Obasanjo, Others – Fayose To Buhari #Beekhaybee

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has accused
President Muhammadu Buhari of being selective in
the fight against corruption.
Fayose asked Buhari to be bold enough to probe former
president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration and others
so that his anti-graft war can be total, The Punch reports.
He said: “I support the fight against corruption but it has to
be total. Buhari must be bold enough to probe how ex-
presidents Obasanjo, Babangida and others spent their
security votes.
“All the presidents that had come in Nigeria spent their
security votes in the same pattern. So, Buhari must open the
book and come out with facts .”
Speaking at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat
on Monday while presenting party flags to chairmanship
and councilorship candidates of the party, Fayose urged his
colleagues to conduct elections in the local governments.

He described the local governments as the closest to the
people saying, “ Not every person can be opportune to see
the governor, but many people can see the Chairman of a
local government.
“But in the Local Government polls in Ekiti, we won’t
conduct inconclusive elections. I appeal to our people to
come out en masse and vote. APC decided to boycott the
election because they know we will give them 16-0 in the
chairmanship and 177-0 in the councillorship .”
Meanwhile, a suit filed by the All Progressives Congress
(APC) against the composition of the Ekiti State Independent
Electoral Commission was dismissed by the Ekiti state High
Court on Monday, December 14.
The APC had alleged that members of the electoral body
constituted by Fayose were card-carrying members of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), so could not conduct a
free and fair election.
According to Justice Dele Omotoso, the opposition party in
the state failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt
and refused to stop the local governments election slated
for this Saturday.

The opposition party in the state has however, vowed to
challenge the judgment at the Court of Appeal.
The party in a statement by its state publicity secretary,
Taiwo Olatubosun read: “ We will not allow the charade
called SIEC to stand. We maintain that the composition of
Ekiti SIEC did not follow the due process and provision of
the law .”
Fayose recently said he is more important than former
president Olusegun Obasanjo in the current political sphere.
According to him, vested on him is more authority than
Obasanjo who “goes to Abuja to beg President Muhammadu
Buhari for political favours.”
