Excluding Omisore, Obanikoro From Travel Ban List Is Partial, Yoruba Youths Tell Buhari



The Yoruba Youth Socio- cultural Association has flayed President Muhammadu Buhari for excluding Senators Iyiola Omisore and Musliu Obanikoro from the list of important personalities affected by the travel ban imposed by the administration .
The group said this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Osogbo on Sunday by the President, Mr . Olalekan Hammed ; and Secretary, Olawale Ajao .
They said the exclusion of these two politicians from the ban was a further confirmation that Buhari ’ s anti -corruption crusade was selective and one- sided.
The Yoruba youths expressed dismay at the exclusion of the two politicians who they said were accused of corruption.
The statement read ,
“The anti – graft war embarked upon by President Muhammadu Buhari since the inception is nothing but a weapon to fight opposition parties and critics.
“In 2015 when President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office , there were reactions from different angles that his anti – corruption war was aimed at targeting only the perceived enemies of government.
“The Presidency denied the allegation, and argued that no matter the parties they belong , all the corrupt people would be dealt with decisively .
“To our dismay , Obanikoro and Omisore , who have been charged with corruption, suddenly became saints as soon as they joined the All Progressives Congress .
“It is saddening to know that the names of the duo were not included in the so-called Executive Order 06 signed by Buhari and banning high profile public officials from overseas travel .
“His action affirmed the fact that the current anti – graft war is deceptive. There should be justice and fairness in the corrupt fight .”
It will be recalled that Obanikoro , who was accused of corruption while in the Peoples Democratic Party , has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress .
Also , Omisore , who is a chieftain of the Social Democratic Party , assisted the APC governorship candidate in the September 27 governorship poll in Osun State to win the crucial rerun election in his stronghold.
