Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that the decision by the President Mohammadu Buhari led Government to probe the immediate past government of former President Goodluck Jonathan amount to mere “playing to the gallery,” noting that “there is no need announcing the intended probe in the media. Rather, the Federal Government should just go ahead and carry out the probe.
Fayose urged President Buhari not to embark on selective probe, if the said probe is to acceptable to all, saying that; “From all indications, it is obvious that the probe they are talking about is targeted at some people and if activities of anti-graft agencies during the tenure of President Buhari are going to be selective, the president should know that the world is watching.”
In a release issued in Ado Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said.“Nigerians should not be probed on the pages of newspapers. Rather, the anti-graft agencies should do their jobs quietly, diligently and in accordance with the laws of the country, not as dictated by any individual or political party,”
He further said that “If there must be any probe, Nigerians want a general probe, not a probe targeted only at the opposition and those seen as not agreeing with the APC positions on the National Assembly.
“However, if what they believed should be done is a selective probe, those holding power in Abuja now should know that what goes round will surely come round and it is just a matter of time.”
Speaking further, Governor Fayose urged President Buhari to pay more attention to governance, especially the Boko Haram insurgency that has come back strongly taking control of five Local Government Areas in the North East, the rising exchange rates of Dollar; Pound Sterling; Euro and other foreign currencies and most importantly, he should be guided by the rule of law.
“This is because four years is a very short period and time is already going. Before you sleep and wakeup, four years will be gone and Nigerians will rate the government based on how well the government bettered their lives, not how many perceived enemies were hunted with anti-graft agencies, he said.”
He noted that God was already vindicating Dr Jonathan by elevating those who worked with him, saying; “As opposition party, APC disparaged Jonathan and those who worked with him. Now that the party is in power, they are still doing the same, behaving as if the party is still in opposition.
