Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, yesterday called on the Federal Government to publish all properties it claimed to have recovered from looters, and their owners as well as buyers of the properties when they are eventually sold.
Governor Fayose tackles President Muhammadu Buhari informing him that Nigerians were no longer interested in being governed with propaganda.
Fayose said: “Nigerians want to know how many properties were recovered and who bought the properties. Who authorized the sale? Nigerians want details, not propaganda because most of these properties have been sold and resold.”
The governor made the assertions via a released press statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, saying “the federal government should create a website where all the properties recovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and to whom they were sold will be listed so that by one click, Nigerians will have information.”
Speaking further, Governor Fayose said it’s becoming difficult for Nigerians to trust the EFCC reports on recovered looted funds and properties because of its hypocritical and selective approach to cases of corruption.
Fayose said: “How can Nigerians continue to trust the position of the same EFCC that said in April 2016 that the allegation of corruption against chairman, Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Danladi Umar was mere suspicion and would be difficult to proof in court, but now charged the same CCT chairman to court on the allegation it described as mere suspicion?
Governor Fayose also said: “On November 23, 2017, Senator Emmanuel Paulker, the Chairman of the Senate committee investigating the botched reinstatement and promotion of the former Chairman the Presidential Task Force on Pensions, under the leadership of Ibrahim Maina told Nigerians on the floor of the Senate that almost all the exotic properties recovered from alleged looters of Pension Funds had already been re-looted by officials of the EFCC.”
