Stop singing old songs of blame, Fayose tells Osinbajo


Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State

Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose has carpeted the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on his continuous complaints about alleged corruption in the immediate past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government. “Nigerians are more interested in what the government has done to make life better for them and not what the previous governments did or failed to do. Today, the most difficult question any student can be asked to answer in an examination is to list five achievements of the government of which Osinbajo is the Vice President.”

The governor, who said corruption has become more endemic in the present All Progressives Congress (APC) government added that; “If the Vice President is honest, he will see majority of those who called the shots during the previous PDP governments that he claimed mismanaged the country’s resources, holding sensitive positions in the present government. Obviously, PDP has purged itself of corrupt elements in its fold and offloaded them to the APC.”

He added that he was beginning to have doubts on the VP’s claim to be a pastor, asking, “Is he truly a pastor? A pastor does not go about playing to the gallery and defending falsehood. Isn’t it a disgrace for a pastor of the Redeemed Church in particular to be an agent of falsehood?”


Governor Fayose said instead of going about exposing his hypocrisy, Osinbajo should be telling Nigerians what happened to the report of those probe panels that he headed. “Even though I have great respect for him, of recent; I am constrained to begin to have a rethink. As a Professor and Pastor, he should be a light in this government of darkness, and the engine room of the government. But shamefully, he goes about saying things that are not true. He is always jumping to defend what is indefensible in this government. Osinbajo should tell Nigerians what their government is doing and stop blame games.”

“Most importantly, if the VP has evidence of corruption against anyone that served in the previous governments, he should present the evidence to court at a proper trial and not at public functions because corruption cases are not tried at social functions.”
