Stop Calling Buhari Mr Integrity As Fayose Reacts To TI Corruption ReportFeatured, Latest News, News, News Across Nigeria, News From The State Saturday, January 30th, 2021
(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Former Ekiti governor, Peter Ayodele Fayose, says President Buhari should no longer be referred to as “Mr integrity” due to the recent report by the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2020 report published by Transparency International.
According to the report, Nigeria occupies the 149th position out of the 180 countries surveyed as well scored 25 out of 100 points and now the second most corrupt country in West Africa with Guinea-Bissau the only country more corrupt than Nigeria in the sub-region.
Reacting to this development, Fayose took to his Twitter account saying that President Buhari not only failed to secure Nigerians but also failed to fight corruption as he promised.
According to the former Ekiti governor the All Progressive Congress (APC) while they were an opposition party, had used Transparency International to discredit the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party led by Goodluck Joanthan.
He wrote: “Transparency International has now established that under Buhari, Nigeria has become the headquarters of corruption. At this point, it’s illegal and morally unacceptable to refer to Buhari as Mr Integrity. He has equally failed in securing Nigerians. Therefore, Buhari’s integrity is my foot.
“When the President and his APC gang labelled the PDP govt of President Jonathan as corrupt, they relied on reports by the Transparency International (TI). Then, the organization was right and its reports were credible.
“Now under Buhari, Mr “Integrity and Corruption Fighter”, the same Transparency International latest report placing Nigeria as the 2nd Most Corrupt country in West Africa is no longer credible.”
