Mr. Diran Odeyemi, the spokesman for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, in his statement in Osogbo the state capital yesterday, dared President Muhammadu Buhari to name treasury looters as he had earlier promised.
Odeyemi who criticized the president’s anti-corruption war as being selective noted that their findings shows that Buhari has refused to publish the names of looters because two (2) of his serving ministers in his cabinet are among those who stole from public treasury.
“We hereby dare Mr. President to name those people that reportedly returned stolen money. From our findings, two serving ministers also returned huge amount of money stolen from public treasury and that made Mr. President to renege on his promise to name looters on May 29. He said.
“Many petitions detailing sleaze ongoing in Osun State in the last five and a half years are lying unattended to at the EFCC’s office. Few individuals have also heightened the feast on the state’s intestine in the last six months making Osun to be gasping for breath. From 9th position in 2009 in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination passing rate to 29th in 2015, and as a matter of fact no sector is working.
“We implore Mr. President to re-examine his anti-corruption fight and make it total instead of the targeted attacks on the PDP members to permanently silence opposition voices in the country.
“No individual has succeeded in killing the truth. Today Buhari is keeping Femi Fani-Kayode, Esther Nenadi Usman in prison, Olisa Metuh almost lost his life in detention, Fayose, Omisore, Akpabio are being trailed and despite huge evidence of graft against many serving governors elected on the APC’s platform and many ministers and other political appointees of Buhari, the corruption “fighters” would rather not touch them.”
