Buhari Is Not Harassing Jonathan’s Family, He’s Only Allowing The Law To Take It’s Course – Presidency

The Presidency through Femi Adeshina (the special Adviser to the
President (Media & Publicity) has responded to ta news headline in a
national newspaper of Wednesday, April 26, entitled: Buhari’s Government Harrassing My Family, Says Jonathan.

The paper said former President
Goodluck Jonathan made the allegation in a new book, “Against The Run of
Play”, written by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Mr. Olusegun
Adeniyi. 

The former president also reportedly disagreed with the style
being used by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in
fighting corruption. 
The presidency says, ‘we
make bold to state unequivocally that President Buhari harasses nobody;
he merely allows the law to take its course. For the umpteenth time, we
say that anybody without skeleton in his or her cupboard, has nothing to
fear about the bared fangs of the anti-corruption initiative. Fear
belongs only to those who have abused trust while in office. Anybody who
feels aggrieved is free to approach the courts to seek redress or
justice. President Buhari believes in the rule of law and that is why
his campaign against corruption is anchored on that plank. With regard
to President Buhari’s anti-graft style, which the former president
deprecates, given the scale of revelations and recoveries so far by the
anti-corruption agencies, it is obvious that corruption had an
uninhibited course during our recent past. 

In
any case, time will give the verdict on whose style of fighting
corruption ultimately yielded the most dividends. For now, President
Buhari is resolute and single-minded in the fact that his crusade
against graft is not targeted at any individual or group. He firmly
believes that national interest must always be placed above personal
interest, no matter who is involved.
