Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is running the most corrupt government in history of Nigeria.
Fayose spoke against the backdrop of alleged award of $25 billion contracts, without due process, by Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru.
Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, accused Baru of insubordination and that the NNPC board was not consulted before the contracts were awarded.
He said, “When miscreants write petitions to the EFCC, against perceived opponents of president Buhari, EFCC will act immediately, but, when known Nigerians, including members of Buhari’s government raise allegations of corruption against close allies of the president, the EFCC will look the other way.
“No nation can achieve greatness with such a partial leadership.
“As far as I am concerned, president Buhari is not fighting any corruption. He is fighting his political foes and God is not a God of double-standards. This Buhari government is a government of double-standard.”
