Fayose Ekiti Governor says ‘Try those indicted in Halliburton, Siemens scam,’

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has called on President Buhari to prove to Nigerians that his war against corruption is not selective.

He said the President should go beyond acknowledging that the case will be re-visited, to actually putting those indicted on trial.

Vanguard reports that the Governor, though his media aide, Lere Olayinka said “As it still appears, the statement made by the Federal Government on the Halliburton and Siemens corruption scandals may not be more than another decoy to shift the attention of Nigerians from the selective nature of President Buhari’s fight against corruption.”

He said “This is because unlike the arms deal that the EFCC is investigating, the Halliburton and Siemens scams have been investigated both in Nigeria and in the other countries. None of the top Nigerian culprits implicated in the $1.5 billion bribery scandal had been questioned and put on trial in Nigeria while others from other countries were already serving various jail terms.

“Therefore, reopening the Halliburton and Siemens scams should be immediate and total. It should not be another decoy to deceive Nigerians by giving the impression that the anti-corruption war is not targeted at those opposed to President Buhari in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his own party, the APC.”
