CAN President Ayo Oritsejafor, former military leader Abdulsalam Abubakar and other members of the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General elections met with President Buhari at Aso Rock today August 11th. At the meeting, the group appealed to Pres. Buhari to be fair in his fight against corruption and ensure that due process is followed in the proposed probe of the last administration.
Speaking to state house correspondents after the meeting, Rev Kukah who was part of the delegation said
“It (the way corruption war is being fought) is not heating up the polity. In our conversation with President Jonathan and members of the parties, I don’t think any Nigerian is in favour of corruption or is against the President’s commitment to ensuring that we turn a new leaf. I think what we are concerned about is the process. It is no longer a military regime and under our existing laws, everybody is innocent until proven guilty. Again, our own commitment is not to intimidate or fight anybody, the former President’s commitment and what he did still remains spectacular and I think that President Buhari himself appreciates that. So, our effort really is to make sure that the right thing is done.”
