Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being very corrupt.
The former Minister was reacting to Buhari’s claim while commissioning the new office block of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, that he was toppled as military Head of State because he was fighting corruption.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode wondered what could be more corrupt than the alleged coup staged by Buhari in 1983 against a democratically-elected government.
He wrote: “Yesterday @MBuhari lamented about how he was detained for 3 years in 1985 for “fighting corruption”.
“He forgot that he staged a coup d’etat in 1983, toppled a democratically-elected govt. and stole the Presidency and entire treasury. What could be more corrupt than that?
“If his coup had failed, he would have been court-martialled, tied to the stake and shot for military insurrection, mutiny and treason and not just put under house arrest for 3 years.
“He should count himself lucky and not talk about history because he has much to answer for,” said FFK.
