Anti-corruption war is not negotiable – PMB

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday replied former ministers of the former President Goodluck Jonathan who questioned the sincerity of his anti-corruption war, saying it is not intended to rubbish the name of anyone.

The ministers had in a statement cautioned against President Buhari’s “selective anti-corruption war” and warned against labelling the Jonathan government as corrupt.

Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja replied:

“The latest trade union formation, the Association of Ex-Jonathan Ministers should do a bit of self-reflection on the sort of government they handed to President Muhammadu Buhari back in May to determine for themselves if it would have been right for any incoming government, not just this one to ignore the issue of the brazen theft of public assets, perhaps the first of its kind we have ever seen in this country.

Earlier statements made in this regard that there is no witch hunt or malice against anyone in the pursuit of the county’s stolen assets still stands.

For the purpose of emphasis, the issue of fighting corruption by President Buhari is non-negotiable.

All they handed over to him is at best, was  a tottering economy hobbled by corruption and the absence of due process.

So what are former ministers afraid of in these things? Have they become a new trade union?

Let this collection of ex-VIPs allow the President the peace he needs to handle the reconstruction of the economy and the nation in a manner that most serves Nigeria’s  best interests.

President Buhari does not need these types of distraction presented by the so-called association of former ministers”
