President Muhammadu Buhari to stop acting like
the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria by
shielding his men from probe,

just as he asked
Nigerians to demand the release of the authentic
report of the Committee on Audit of Defence
Equipment Procurement in the Nigerian Armed
Forces.
He described the claim by the federal government
that the probe panel only looked into procurement
and contracts awarded by the military between
2011-2015 because documents regarding
procurement from 2007 to 2010 were not
available as a clear indication of his support for
corruption.
In a statement issued on Sunday by his Special
Assistant on Public Communications and New
Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said “It is
now obvious to the entire world that anyone that
is in President Buhari’s good books can never be
adjudged as corrupt even if such a person is
caught looting the entire money in Nigeria’s
treasury.”
The governor said it smacked of sheer hypocrisy
and nepotism for anyone to accept that fraud
could have been perpetrated on procurement and
award of contracts in an establishment without the
involvement of the director of procurement.
“There are many petitions relating to defence from
2007 that are been discarded, the question is
why? There are several petitions against APC
leaders that are not being looked into, the
question is why?
“Fghting corruption and targeting only opponents
of the president is in itself corruption,” he said.
He continued, “Buhari’s’ Minister of Interior, Major
General Abdul rahman Dambazau (rtd) was Chief
of Army Staff between 2008 and 2010 and the
current Chief Of Army Staff, Major General Tukur
Buratai served as Director of Procurements,
Defence Headquarters, from 2012 till May 2015.
“It is a fact that the committee in its terms of
reference said it queried all procurement from
2007 to 2015. Even the Press Release issued was
titled; ‘Third Interim Report of the Presidential
Committee on Audit of Defence Equipment
Procurement from 2007 to 2015.
“First paragraph of the committee report also
indicated that it used 2007-2015 as reference,
stating that the committee ‘analyzed procurement
contracts awarded by or for the Nigerian Army
between 2007
and 2015.
