Fayose Says Buhari’s Anti-Corruption Fight Is Like Satan Calling Judas Iscariot Sinner


The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has described the ongoing anti-corruption fight of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration as “satan calling Judas Iscariot a sinner”.

He made the remark while reinstating his earlier stance that Buhari was only after his perceived political opponents with his anti-graft war.

In a series of tweets on his official twitter handle, on Monday Fayose wrote:

“Someone accused of stealing billions of pension fund was returned to the FG civil service, and you still think Buhari is fighting corruption?

“Didn’t I tell Nigerians that Buhari was not fighting any corruption? Didn’t I say that Buhari was only after his political opponents?

“Fellow Nigerians, are you now convinced that Buhari’s anti-corruption fight is like Satan calling Judas Iscariot a sinner?

“I said it then that the kind of corruption that will be witnessed in this govt of Buhari will be unprecedented, am I not being vindicated?”

Meanwhile, the governor has also sworn that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, cannot stop him from contesting the 2019 Presidential election.

Speaking during a meeting of South West governors in Lagos, Fayose said the constitution of the country far outweighed that of the party.

According to him, “I am not on my own, I have most Nigerians behind me. Rather, the PDP is on their own.

“I have been well groomed. I am mature and firebrand enough to face challenges of tomorrow. Things don’t happen by accident. When the party (PDP) almost fell apart, how many of them did we see at the time. How many of them spoke at the time.

“If they zoned it to the North, so because I am not a northerner, then I don’t have a right, the Constitution does not allow me to contest? Forget that.

“What are you saying? Have you not seen in this country where a zone has two key offices? We know where the Speaker is from. During Tambuwal Speakership, the post was zoned to the southwest but because we lost it, a zone got the two top appointments in the land.

“It is the Presidency that orders things. When I become President in 2019, I will reorder those things.

“Nothing can stop me from contesting. Even if they pick the party’s chairman from my family: even if they pick my son as party chairman, I will contest.”
