President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he will not spare anyone found guilty of corruption or embezzlement, it has emerged.
This was made known by Presidential spokes person Femi Adesina yesterday who said that if found guilty, the President’s predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, would face the full wrath of the law.
Mr. Adesina when he visited Premium Times newspaper’s office in Abuja, said that Mr. Buhari has “no accord” to shield any corrupt person from prosecution.
“There is no accord that if corruption is proven, it will not be tried,” he said of the former president. “With this president, nobody will be protected. And I underscore it, if it needs to get anywhere, it will get there.” Adesina said.
He emphasized that there was no agreement prior to the March 2015 presidential election that Mr. Jonathan would not be made to face trial if corruption allegations were proven against him.
