Former Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has tackled former President Olusegun Obasanjo over the level of corruption and insecurity under the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Fayose's latest comments come in light of Obasanjo's silence as the country continues to fight increased insecurity and corruption allegations in government agencies.
In a thread of tweets posted via his verified Twitter handle on Saturday, July 25, Fayose questioned why the former Nigerian leader has chosen to remain silent.
The former governor went on to note that it was because of the alleged corruption and insecurity that Obasanjo teamed up with others to force the president on Nigeria.
Speaking further on Obasanjo's silence, Fayose said it is either the former president is tired, timid, afraid or he is no longer the one people used to know.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the former governor of Ekiti state has called on President Buhari to sack Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs and Kemebradikumo Pondei, acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Fayose disclosed this in a tweet on Friday, July 25. According to Fayose, the duo had been celebrating the success of their drama at the national assembly with hot pepper soup and assorted drinks.
“With this level of fraud exposed in NDDC, Buhari must sack Akpabio now,” Fayose said.
In other news, the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, has described nepotism as the worst form of corruption. Sanusi made this assertion while speaking at a webinar themed: “The sustainability of society” on Friday, July 17.
According to Sanusi, corruption has impacted negatively on society. Sanusi argued that while corruption itself is a problem, the type of corruption is also critical. Nepotism, he noted, is the worst kind because it dethrones merit.
He blamed nepotism for the collapse of the Federal Character system in Nigeria.
