Buhari’s govt more corrupt than Jonathan’s ― PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the All Progressive Congress (APC) government of President Muhammadu Buhari is more corrupt than its predecessor under Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

That is the position of the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who made the assertion while speaking recently at the Hackney Borough’s Speaker’s Parlour, at Hackney Town Hall, England.

He was there to unveil his ambition to govern Ekiti State in 2018 before well-wishers and supporters.

Adeyeye said unlike Buhari’s two predecessors, Olusegun Obasanjo and Jonathan, who prosecuted and jailed members of their ruling party, Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign has become “a political tool,” targeted mainly at those in the opposition.

He said: “I have been shouting as the national publicity secretary of the PDP that the whole corruption fight of the Buhari administration is just to harass the opposition, nothing more than that.

“A few days ago, my people in Abuja were calling me from the secretariat to inform me that EFCC had returned over 40 houses it seized from former Bayelsa State governor, Diepreye Sylva, to him.

“This guy has never done any work other than being in government. He built over 40 houses in Abuja alone, and EFCC seized the houses, and has now given them back to him because he is an APC man.

“So, Buhari’s war against corruption is all nonsense. Nobody’s fighting corruption in Nigeria.

“This government is even worse. When they leave, you will see the depth of their own corrupt deeds.”

Adeyeye also commented on his recent disagreement with Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state over the governor’s endorsement of his deputy as the PDP candidate for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

The party spokesman who himself is gunning for the ticket, said he has no problem with the governor who he described as his friend.

“The governor and I are friends and I believe reason will prevail and we cooperate together,” he said, adding that they will “fight for next year’s election, and win by the grace of God.”
