Why I Wrote Chinese Gov’t To Stop Buhari’s Loan – Fayose
“What Nigeria needs is the collaboration of the Government of China in the area of technology transfer, rather than granting loan that will be mismanaged under the guise of building infrastructure”, Fayose said in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka on Monday.
He also slammed the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), John Oyegun and the Deputy National Chairman, Segun Oni, others for criticizing his letter.
He said, “people like Oyegun, Oni and Prof Itse SaGaey lack moral rights to complain even if President Muhammadu Buhari is called whatever names, because they never complained when as a sitting president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan was called unprintable names by APC stalwarts and leaders.
“Where were the likes of Oyegun, Oni, Prof Itse SaGaey and others when APC promoted crude politics and anti-Nigeria posturing to an unprecedented level when Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was in power?”
Fayose further stated that, “It is on record that APC wrote to the United States of America not to sell arms to Nigeria, reported the country to the European Union, United Nations and went to the bizarre extent of reporting the then Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, to the International Criminal Court (ICC), not for committing the kind of genocide committed against the Shiite Muslims in Zaria and Agatus in Benue, but for killing Boko Haram insurgents”.
