The Special Assistant to the governor of Ekiti State on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka called and accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as the headquarter of corruption in Nigeria. In a long statement this is what he said…
“If there is anyone that should be urgently prosecuted, it is Ibrahim Magu who was indicted the DSS and still operating illegally as the EFCC Acting Chairman despite his rejection the Senate.”
“It is obvious that Fayose’s emergence as Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum has unsettled the APC cabal because they fear that he is capable of using theplatform against President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term ambition.
“Ridiculously, in their desperation and fear of the unknown, EFCC shamelessly turned itself to the mouthpiece of the protesters issuing press statement on their behalf.
“Less than 50 paid protesters came to the EFCC and the next thing to be seen was a press statement signed EFCC Head of Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, isn’t this ridiculous? Is EFCC spokesperson also the mouthpiece of the so-called protesters? May be EFCC operatives including Magu should have joined the protest so that Nigerians will know that it was EFCC that protested and the media will be able to use appropriate headline like; ‘EFCC stages protest against Fayose.’ Shame!
“If they are having headache because of Governor Fayose’s rising profile, especially his emergence as Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, their headache will soon turn to migraine that will be difficult to cure.”
“Magu that was indicted of corruption the DSS and other functionaries of the Buhari’s APC government must be prosecuted first.”
Olayinka in his statement advised APC leaders, especially Fayemi to rise above pettiness and stop fighting a lost battle, saying;
“It is funny that they still believe they can use the same strategy that they used in 2006 to wrestle power in 2017.”
