muhammadu-buhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to commence the probe of all government officials allegedly accused of wrong-doing.

Malam Garba Shehu, the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, made this known on social media on Sunday.

Shehu said that the president, who expressed concern over the increasing media reports alleging various accusations of corruption against certain individuals in government, has vowed to prosecute any government official found wanting in the discharge of his/her responsibility.

He said, “The attention of the presidency has been drawn to a number of reports in the media in which various accusations of corruption have been levelled against some top officials in the administration.

“In that regard, President Buhari has instructed the Attorney General of the Federation to investigate the involvement of any top government officials accused of any wrong-doing.

“If any of them are liable they will not escape prosecution.’’

You will recall that some government officials, including Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu and others were allegedly accused of various wrong-doings by the Senate.

The Senate on Thursday rejected the nomination of Magu as substantive chairman of the EFCC, attributing its decision on damaging security reports against him.

Hajiya Naja’atu Muhammed, a member of the ruling APC, has also called on President Buhari to remove some of his aides being accused of various cases of corrupt practices.
