Adebanjo accused Buhari of fighting graft like Obasanjo

20 October 2015, 12:19

Lagos - Afenifere chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of adopting the style of former President Olusegun Obasanjo in the anti-graft war, Punch reports.

Adebanjo said that Obasanjo only fought corruption when he wanted to crush his political opponents while using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as his political watchdog to harass all his political opponents.

He said that Buhari had already started fighting corruption in a similar way.

Adebanjo said this while reacting to an allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party that the EFCC was only probing ex-PDP governors while ex-All Progressives Congress governors like Babatunde Fashola and Rotimi Amaechi, who had been accused of corruption, were being recommended for ministerial appointments.

He said President Buhari’s anti-corruption agency would continue to get his backing as long as it was fair and transparent.
