In an interview with The Interviewer magazine., titled, ''Why Babangida Removed Me From Power'', President Muhammadu Buhari said if any member of his party, the APC nor any of his supporters is found guilty in any act of corruption, he will not shield them.
And he asked;, “Do you just grab people along the road and take them off to court for trial just because you want to create a semblance of balance? First, there has to be an accusation which must be properly investigated, and when a prima facie case has been built, you prosecute.
If any of my backers or party (APC) members has anything established against them, let’s see whether I will shield anyone from prosecution. There seems to be a preponderance of the People Democratic Party members standing trial because they had been in power for 16 years, they had access to the public treasury and abused the trust reposed in them. You can be assured that anybody caught in corruption will answer for it irrespective of party, tribe or religion.”he said.
Can someone please remind Buhari that Rotimi Amaechi has been investigated and indicted, to say the least, among numerous petitions begging for investigation on the desks of the EFCC.
