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.
