Buhari Will Prosecute Jonathan, If He Is Proven Corrupt – Presidential Aide

The Presidency has warned that no one found guilty of corruption including the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan, would not be spared.

Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this on Thursday when he paid a visit to the Abuja office of Premium Times.

Stating that Buhari has “no accord” to shield any corrupt person from prosecution, Adesina said, “There is no accord, if the corruption fight needs to get there (making Jonathan face justice), it will get there.”
“There is no accord that if corruption is proven, it will not be tried,” he said adding that “with this president, nobody will be protected. And I underscore it, if it needs to get anywhere, it will get there.”

The presidential spokesman went on to state that contrary to cries in some quarters, the ongoing war against corruption by the current administration is not targeted at the opposition.
