Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti state, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
The former Ekiti State governor asked President Buhari to prove he is not in support of corruption by sacking the main actors in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) scandal.
Naija News reports that the National Assembly is currently investigating the alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the interim management committee of NDDC.
Kemebradikumo Pondei, acting managing director of the NDDC had fainted while he was being grilled by the panel on Monday.
Akpabio also faced the panel, where he accused some members of the House of Representatives of getting 60% of NDDC contracts.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Fayose alleged that the duo had been celebrating the success of their drama at the national assembly with hot pepper soup and assorted drinks.
“With this level of fraud exposed in NDDC, Buhari must sack Akpabio now,” Fayose wrote.
“The President can’t continue to treat looting of public treasury as a family affair and his fight against corruption as an instrument of persecution against opposition figures.
“By keeping in his govt the likes of Akpabio and the NDDC MD, Prof Pondei, who went about celebrating the success of their National Assembly drama with hot pepper soup and assorted drinks, the President will only be reinforcing the conclusion that he supports corruption.”
