Seized $43m: Fayose Corrupt, Afraid Of Being Dealt With When Out Of Office - APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has dismissed the criticism by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, that some looters were allegedly hiding stolen funds in Aso Villa in Abuja.

The party said no amount of blackmail would‎ derail the anti-graft war being waged by the party at the federal level.

According to the APC, Fayose’s outburst against Buhari is geared towards shielding members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from being made to account for the monies they allegedly looted under President Goodluck Jonathan-led government.

Deputy Chairman of the APC in Ekiti State, Kemi Olaleye, stated this in Ado Ekiti , on Tuesday while receiving some gift items from a governorship aspirant , Engr Kayode Ojo at the party’s Secretariat.

Recall that the governor on Monday accused some Buhari’s confidants and top members of the ruling party of stocking looted funds in Aso Villa to prevent them from the eyes of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, describing the scenario as selective and provocative.

Olaleye, however, described Fayose’s allegation as baseless and spurious, saying “Ordinarily, I would not have dignified Governor Fayose with a response, but for the purpose of clarity his noise was targeted at derailing the war against corruption.

“How can Fayose accuse anybody of corruption? In Ekiti State, he is the Finance Commissioner, the Accountant General, in fact , he is acting like all-in-all. He is corrupt himself and afraid of being dealt with after leaving office, hence his resort to blackmail and diversionary tactics.

“We are solidly behind Buhari’s government in his war against corruption. Nothing can derail our fight against corruption, because we are determined to deal with corruption squarely. So, this is just a noise to distract Buhari.”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
