Afenifere Chieftain Blasts President Buhari And His Anti-Corruption Fight

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of fighting corruption the same way former President Olusegun Obasanjo did.
Adebanjo, an Afenifere chieftain, told Punch during an interview that Obasanjo only fought corruption when he wanted to crush his political opponents.He said Obasanjo used the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to harass all his political opponents under the guise of fighting corruption. The 88-year-old said Buhari had already started fighting corruption in a similar fashion.

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 rewarded with ministerial appointments.

The Afenifere leader said he would continue to support Buhari’s anti-corruption agency as long as it was fair and transparent. He said,
“When fighting corruption, you must not be partisan. This particular one looks like a vendetta. He should immediately make amends. This is obviously partisan and I am not happy about that. 
“We want a clean country. As Buhari said, if we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill us. However, it must not look like a vendetta. This was how Obasanjo did during his time. He went after only those that were against his political ambition.
“Things like this could rubbish any anti-corruption campaign.”
Adebanjo urged the EFCC to investigate the ex-APC governors that had also been accused of corruption so as to ensure balance.
