One of President Muhammadu Buhari’s most vociferous critics, Ayodele Fayose, who has just completed his tenure as the governor of the southwestern state of Ekiti, stormed the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday with a branded tshirt that read “EFCC I’m here”.
Mr Fayose also carried two bags with sleeping items certain he would be arrested and detained for a long time, not because of corruption, but because he believes President Buhari is waging a desperate war against political enemies ahead of a difficult presidential election in February.

On Saturday, Mr Buhari issued an Executive Order placing 50 high profile Nigerians on a watch list and banning them from traveling out of the country reportedly due to massive corruption.
Opposition quickly pointed out that the 50 persons placed on a travel ban were all members of the opposition People’s Democratic Party.
Mr Buhari is a former military dictator and retired Major General who steamed to power in 2015 promising everything, from crushing Boko Haram to killing corruption before it kills Nigeria.
But so far, many believe he has failed to succeed.
