Festus Keyamo, the APC presidential campaign spokesman for the 2023 general elections, has given his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari, a pat on the back and absolved him of failing to tackle official corruption in his regime.

 

“Did you hear of the corruption in the oil sector with Deziani and her allies? No. It was the next government that brought them out. This is a government purging itself, purging its officials of corruption. That is kudos to the government,” argued Mr Keyamo on Trust TV Monday night while responding to Daniel Bwala, spokesman for Atiku Abubakar’s presidential campaign organisation.

 

Mr Bwala highlighted Mr Buhari’s failure to tackle corruption, economic crises and insecurity. But Mr Keyamo pointed out that “the fact that these tales of corruption are coming out is the fact that the government is fighting itself, ownself.”

 

He reasoned, “It is fighting corruption within the system. If (the) government were not to be fighting corruption, you would not hear of this.”

 

Mr Keyamo asked, “During Jonathan’s time did you hear of corruption in the security sector? No. It was the next government that brought them out.”

 

Though Mr Buhari claims to be leading an anti-corruption war, his regime has been rocked by several corruption scandals, ranging from certificate forgery among his aides to theft, diversion of public funds and how recently, Mr Buhari’s aide Bashir Ahmad continued to draw salaries illegally for months after resigning.
