DasukiGate: Buhari Is Going About It All Wrong – GEJ Supporter, Adebanjo
Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a staunch support of immediate-past President Goodluck Jonathan, has flayed President Muhammadu Buhari’s war on corruption and condemned the way prominent members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were being targeted.
Adebanjo revealed this in an interview with The Sun over the weekend, while also calling on Buhari to focus on members of his party, All Progressives, who may have corruptly enriched themselves.
Speaking on the ant-corruption fight, he said: “This is the style of the administration. They are doing the right thing the wrong way in my view. All these people might be guilty.
But can’t he balance it up by arresting from both sides of the political divides or he is saying all people in APC are angels? You may say it is past government they are probing, but those who ruled the country in the last administration are also in his cabinet now. Is he saying all the PDP members who joined the APC have become saints? He said 16 years of PDP rule brought us to this position, but many of the people in his cabinet werev with the PDP until three years ago. So, their joining the APC has purified them? I am not saying they shouldn’t arrest them, but perception is very important. You and I know some of the corrupt people in APC. Let them take one or two among them to give some sense of balancing. The impression now is that he is deliberately making effort to ruin the other party. They may have just cause to arrest all these people, but we are in a political society. Certainly, you and I know that there are corrupt people among their leading members.
I don’t know because I don’t have the facts.”
