Fayose advises Buhari on anti-graft war

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against allowing politicians to hijack the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for their selfish motives.
Fayose spoke in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday while administering oaths of office on 10 new commissioners in the state, with a promise to give 25 per cent to the illiterates in his further appointments.
“The illiterates will get 25 per cent because it is from them we get the votes. Though they may not have the certificates, but there is nothing wrong with us keeping them in one board for them to have recognition,” he said.
The governor also congratulated the former Aviation Minister and Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, on his victory in the court of law over the corruption cases instituted against him by the EFCC.
Fayose said, “I want to advise President Buhari not to allow politicians to hijack the graft war because if our motive is to fight personality instead of the corrupt people, then you will destroy institutions and rubbish the whole thing.
“The war should not be partisan or be a fight in the face of vendetta or act of vindictiveness.”
The governor warned the new commissioners not to compete with permanent secretaries and directors in the course of discharging their duties. He urged them to see the opportunity as a divine grace.
