The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has challenged Adbullahi Maina to name the thieves in President Buhari cabinet to clear his conscience.
Governor Fayose described the Mainaâ€™s interview shown on Channels Television yesterday, as explosive, saying he was sure that President Buhari will look the other way just as he did on the allegation of award of $25 billion contracts without following due process made against the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC); Dr. Maikanti Baru, by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu and many others.
In a statement on Tuesday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose, said he had again been vindicated on his position that the kind of corruption being perpetrated in President Buhariâ€™s government was unprecedented and mind-boggling.
He said; â€œThe Mainaâ€™s challenge is another opportunity for President Buhari to proof to Nigerians that he is actually fighting corruption. But I am sure that since it again bothers on his closest men, he wonâ€™t do anything.â€
Governor Fayose said it was important for Maina to wash himself clean of the N2.1 Billion pension fraud that made him escaped from the country and earned him dismissal from the civil service.
The governor, who challenged Maina to name those in Buhariâ€™s government that are thieves, noted that â€œThere is no need waiting for the President to conduct a public inquiry on the pension scam, Maina should just go ahead and tell Nigerians who the thieves among Buhariâ€™s men are.
â€œEven after naming them, Maina should not expect any action from the President. Rather, he should be contented with satisfying his conscience and putting those Buhariâ€™s men that he said are pretending to be saints in the court of public opinion.â€
