Presidential library project: Why Obasanjo, Fayose, orthers must be prosecuted – Sagay

Unread postby Wsj » Sun Mar 19, 2017 2:56 pm

The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Prof Itse Sagay, has reacted to the comment by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, where he alleged that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo forced the then governors to contribute N10m each to his Presidential Library.

Fayose had last week claimed that Obasanjo forced all state governors during his administration to contribute N10m each, amounting to N360m to the Presidential Library project which was inaugurated recently in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Speaking with The Sun, Sagay said both Obasanjo, Fayose and other affected governors should be prosecuted for using state funds for personal project.

Berating Fayose and the other governors for contributing public funds to the project, Sagay stressed that it was wrong for the governor to be the raising the issue now.

According to the governor, “I believe it. There was a lot of complaints at that time that Chief Obasanjo was twisting the arms of those governors and other public officials to donate to the library.

“As someone said in a write up recently that you are not even supposed to donate public money to a private library. What Fayose and the governors did was improper, and it sounds very ill in the mouth of Fayose to raise this issue now.

“Why did he do it in the first place? It sounds very ill in his mouth that he committed an illegality and when you fell out with the man in whose favour you committed it you now come out and begin to cry foul.

“He should be the first person to be punished because he put his hands into state funds and donated it to a private person. In fact, he has convicted himself already of stealing N10 million from his own government. That is disturbing.

“In law, both the receiver and the giver are guilty. There is no question about that. So, Fayose, as well as the other governors, the givers and Obasanjo the receiver are guilty and should be prosecuted.”
