There is now a confirmation that the Presidency is ready to commence probe of ministers and other government officials who served under the President Jonathan’s administration.
The Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, told Channels Television on Thursday that it would only make sense to look into the activities of the immediate past government rather than delving into all other administration.
According to Mr Adesina, “it would be a distraction for the President to begin digging into all former administrations but for a proper take-off of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, there is the need to look into the immediate past government.”
He, however, made it clear that it is not a witch hunt, as only persons who looted the country’s funds would be made to return such loots.
He explained further that President Buhari would not waste time in probing the administrations of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Abdulsalam Abubakar, Sani Abacha and Ibrahim Babangida.
Mr Adesina described the outcome of the President’s official visit to the U.S. as “a roaring success on every side”.
