In Nigeria’s ongoing war against corruption, President Muhammadu Buhari will not spare anyone who has a case to answer, and his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, would face
justice if guilty, presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has said.



Mr. Adesina told PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday, when he visited the newspaper’s office in Abuja, that Mr. Buhari has “no accord” to shield any corrupt person from prosecution.
“There is no accord,” he said, “if the corruption fight needs to get there (making Mr. Jonathan face justice), it will get there.”
Several top officials who served under Mr. Jonathan, as well as his political associates in the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party, are currently being tried, or investigated by the Economic and Financial crimes Commission, for corruption.
A major case involves a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, accused of diverting $2.1 billion arms money, and sharing same to politicians and cronies of the former president.
According to investigators, Mr. Dasuki said he was authorized by Mr. Jonathan to release the money for the nation’s security programmes, and for the 2015 presidential campaign.
The spokesperson for the PDP, Olisa Metuh, also said he received payment from Mr. Dasuki after carrying out some assignments for the former president.
Those claims have raised questions regarding whether Mr. Jonathan, whom Mr. Buhari assured during transfer of power in 2015, that he had nothing to fear, would face prosecution should it be proven he has a case to answer.
Mr. Buhari has also been accused of bias against the PDP.
That allegations gained traction last week after his associate and party member, Jafaru Isa, was released by the EFCC despite facing what appeared a similar allegation as that against Mr. Metuh, the PDP spokesperson.
But Mr. Adesina denied the allegations against the president.
“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.”
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.
Mr. Adesina denied Mr. Buhari’s involvement in the release of Mr. Isa after the APC member reportedly returned N100 million out of N170 million he was accused of unlawfully receiving from Mr. Dasuki.
“If the President had wanted to protect him, he would not have been arrested in the first place”, Mr. Adesina said.
He said investigations into other sectors, such as banking, and petroleum, would soon start.

This old man is a big fool. Tell Buhari to try IBB, Atiku, Abdulsalam, Abacha. Northerners are the big thieves we have in Nigeria. They are enjoying their stolen Niger Delta oil freely without any challenge. Tell Buhari to try your brother OBJ, Tinubu, Fashola and other Yoruba leaders who are thief. Very soon Nigeria will go down. Foolish old man

Anybody that took our money should go to prison after the money has been recovered but my question still remains... From where did APC got the money they used in financing their party to win election? Because is obvious that PDP took our $2.1billion to finance their own party. The APC government can fool gullible Nigerians and those who believes APC party to be full of saints as for me PDP or APC they are all criminals.

GEJ had his chance to probe the 'Northern thieves' (as you called it) and all the others, but what d phuck did he do??? NOTHING.!!! Instead, he presided got himself entangled in large scale monumental lootings.
And here we are defending him. For what??? If he is culpable, he should be made to answer for his disservice to Nigeria and her people. Same goes to all would-be indicted persons.

Well, poverty is over 70% of the populance, unemployment is over 60 %, there is currently no future for this country, and all the politicians ar busy looting everything, even some youth think it is okay to steal.  Oil is no more, where is the prove against Jonathan, against  all politicians, whether Apc or Pdp, it all corruption. We are not ready to change, may be until we lose everything.

I can see how a nuisance you are  to yourself and the society. Never being objective rather condescend and resort to emptiness and with gross lack of   provable insinuations.

@ficull Nice response to that empty head... OBJECTIVITY is same thing I always preach here... And it's evident that it's people who lack COMMON SENSE that don't understand this.. I don't understand why people can be blinded so much that they don't even use their brains to REASON. Once they see BUHARI'S name in an article, then they start to display their ignorance, attacking people who know how to use their brains, they believe you either an APC supporter or BUHARI  fanatic simply because you state the facts. ''KNOWLEDGE IS POWER'' put sentiments aside and REASON...! DUMB ONES...!
