Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has asked Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to stop singing the old song of blame, stressing that ‘ if Osinbajo can look around himself with honest eyes, he will see majority of those who called the shots during the previous PDP governments that he claimed mismanaged the country’s resources holding sensitive positions in the present government’.
Fayose in series of tweets on his official twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose, argued that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has purged itself of corrupt elements in its fold and offloaded them to the APC.
“At this point, VP @ProfOsinbajo must be told to stop singing this old song of blame. Nigerians are no longer interested in what PDP did or failed to do. Rather, they are interested in what the APC govt has done and the VP should just tell Nigerians the achievements of their govt.
“Today, even prosecution witnesses are suddenly disappearing in corruption cases involving those who have decamped to the APC and properties once seized are being returned to them. Obviously, PDP has purged itself of corrupt elements in its fold and offloaded them to the APC.
“If VP @ProfOsinbajo can look around himself with honest eyes, he will see majority of those who called the shots during the previous PDP govts that he claimed mismanaged the country’s resources holding sensitive positions in the present govt,” Fayose tweeted.
Fayose’s tweets seem to be a response to the comment by Osinbajo that the Buhari-led administration will continue to make reference to the 16-year rule of the PDP.
Osinbajo stated this on Thursday at the 10th Bola Tinubu Colloquium in Lagos, where the 66th birthday of the former governor of Lagos State was commemorated.
Osinbajo, who described corruption as an existential problem for Nigeria, said, “the corruption of the previous five years destroyed the economy.”
