A US-based Nigerian academic, Dr. Farooq Kperogi, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of ordering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to withdraw from the alleged N25 billion fraud case involving former Governor of Gombe State, Sen. Danjuma Goje.
Kperogi, a Professor at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, made the accusation in a series of tweets on Saturday morning.
The Herald reported Friday how EFCC withdrew from the nearly eight-year-old case and transferred it to the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).
The withdrawal is coming barely 48-hours after Goje, who is the senator representing Gombe Central, accepted to withdraw from the Senate Presidency race in favour of Sen. Ahmed Lawan, the preferred choice of the presidency and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kperogi wrote, “I’ve just learned from someone who witnessed Danjuma Goje’s meeting with Buhari in Aso Rock that it was Buhari who PERSONALLY gave orders that Goje’s N25b fraud case be withdrawn.
“It was d condition Goje gave Buhari for supporting Ahmed Lawan for senate Pres. I swear by the Holy Qur’an that this was what actually happened.
“Buhari is himself a fraudster and has always been, so this didn’t come to me as a surprise. I just pity the hordes of headless idiots who still think this old, duplicitous rogue embodies “integrity.””
