“Having sacrificed members of his cabinet and other close officials, Nigerians should have faith that any alleged pending case of corruption against any govt official being bandied in the media is either frivolous or quietly being investigated as there are no SACRED COWS with PMB.”

 

The Director of Information for the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN), has joined the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and the Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie in defending the appointment of Yusuf Bichi as new Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS) and Kemi Adeosun’s resignation.

In a statement released on Sunday, Keyamo condemned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) criticisms, noting that the current administration is more honest than the past governments.

Recall that PDP had accused the Presidency of protecting Adeosun since the news of her questionable NYSC certificate broke and equally accused the administration of being the most corrupt in the history of Nigeria.

On Adeosun’s resignation, Keyamo enlightened the opposition politicians that there is hardly any government in the world that is free from official scandal.

Using Adeosun’s case to juxtapose the former Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko, over his alleged certificate forgery case, Keyamo averred that the past government under PDP protected Dikko despite the oath taken by the person who actually forged his WAEC certificate.

He said that Buhari did not want to rush into Adeosun’s matter and that was why he took his time to get to the root of the case and eventually did the right thing.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said: “There’s hardly ANY govt in d world where scandals concerning its officials do not arise. The difference is how various govts REACT to these scandals. Some shield officials at the expense of integrity of d State. Others preserve d integrity of d State at the expense of d officials.

“In REACTING to the allegation(s) against Kemi Adeosun & other similar ones in the past, PMB didn’t rush to satisfy public frenzy. He calmly took his time to get to the bottom of these cases & EVENTUALLY ensured that the right thing was done to preserve the integrity of the State.

“The resignation of Adeosun under PMB’s govt is in sharp contrast to d case of Dikko, d CG of Customs under d past govt, who was shielded for 5 YEARS until d govt was voted out despite d person who ACTUALLY forged his WAEC certificate for him swearing to that fact PUBLICLY on oath.

“The same Premium Times as shown belowreported & pursued the case of Certificate forgery by Dikko, but he was shielded by the same people who want to return to power in 2019.‘ @premiumtimesng Court grants order for prosecution of customs boss for forgery.

“Another link to d Dikko story that PDP defended and covered till they left power..’Desperate Dikko-The CG of Customs, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, tries all tactics in the book to suppress his alleged certificate scandal.

“In terms of a sense of shame & consciousness about the integrity of d State, we cannot compare d past callous, shameless & integrity-challenged govt with that of PMB that EVENTUALLY ensures d right thing is done at all times to protect the State instead of questionable officials.

“Having sacrificed members of his cabinet and other close officials, Nigerians should have faith that any alleged pending case of corruption against any govt official being bandied in the media is either frivolous or quietly being investigated as there are no SACRED COWS with PMB.

“We saw a case where a past President could not sack a powerful female Minister because of all the alleged shady deals they did together (some of which are now being revealed). In this case Kemi Adeosun testified to the unquestionable integrity of PMB in her resignation letter.”
