“If not, how do we explain the administration’s open arms reception for defectors from opposition political parties that it hitherto tagged corrupt into the APC?
“They now wine and dine with opposition political party members - both in Nigeria and in diaspora - they have all along termed corrupt in order to reap political benefits from their states of influence during the 2019 elections.
“However, they want unsuspecting Nigerians and members of the international community to believe that the wide scale violation of the fundamental human rights of innocent Nigerians is a sign that the anti-corruption war is being prosecuted in the interest of the country.”
“I am not surprised because I have said it time and time again that Buhari’s anti-corruption fight is highly selective a charade to distract undiscerning Nigerians and members of the international community from the massive corruption inherent in the administration.
“I want Nigerians to know that the fight against corruption is long dead in the country. What we now have is political victimization, intimidation, harassment, coercion and bribing strong opposition political party members to support the re-election bid of Mr. President,” he added.
