There is now a confirmation that the Presidency is ready to commence a probe of ministers and other government officials who served under the immediate past Goodluck Jonathan administration.
The Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, said yesterday on Channels Television 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 will not waste time in probing the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, as well as those of the military regimes of Abdulsalam Abubakar, Ibrahim Babangida and late Sani Abacha.
