“The $2.1 billion arms deal is a scam” - Fayose

17 January 2016, 13:00

Lagos - Ayodele Fayose, the Ekiti State Governor, has spoken out about the 18 military generals that will be investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) about their supposed involvement in the $2.1 billion arms deal.

Today reports that Fayose claimed that the arms deal was a ruse by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to lie to the public and to ‘demonise’ the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and others who do not agree with Buhari’s rule.

“The President must let Nigerians see where the arms deal is in the 2015 budget and publish details of the imaginary $2.1 billion scam,” Fayose said.

He also spoke out about how Buhari’s associate, Jafaru Isa, refunded N100 million in three days with regards to the part he played in the arms deal scandal. Fayose suggested that the money came from the presidency. 

Fayose also criticised the fact that senior military officials were being questioned by junior police officers - saying that Buhari is ridiculing the arms forces. 

In the same way, he has said that the so many of the polls are being declared inconclusive, Buhari has been ridiculing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); as well as ridiculing the courts for refusing to release prisoners who have received bail.
