Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Alhaji Abubakar Dogon Yaro Bibi, has endorsed the invitation of Bauchi State former Governor, Isa Yuguda, by Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over alleged state aircraft found in Morocco.

Bibi who stated this on Tuesday, September 15, 2015, in Bauchi.

He described Yuguda’s probe by EFCC as a milestone towards the anti-corruption crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

He said “Yuguda’s invitation by EFCC is in order. I believe the commission has all the facts before inviting him. So it is left for Yuguda to come and explain how he ran his government for the period he was the governor of Bauchi State.

He expressed support for the current crusade against corruption by Buhari, describing it as a good omen for Nigeria’s economy.

On the allegation that Buhari is being selective in fighting corruption, he said, “Buhari is not the chairman of EFCC but the President of Nigeria so the agency saddled with the fight against corruption is EFCC and Buhari wants to allow them to do their job without interfering.

He called on President Buhari to checkmate activities of the governors because, according to him, most of the governors embezzle government funds instead of executing projects.

“So if Buhari really wants to fight corruption he must checkmate governors”, he said.
