Nigeria: There is Nothing Wrong With Buhari Asking EFCC to Probe Jonathan - Doyin Okupe
A former Special Assistant to ex President Goodluck Jonathan, on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has said there might be nothing wrong in President Muhammadu Buhari asking Jonathan to account for his actions while in office, but that the President should be weary of setting a bad precedent.
“Every regime has the right to investigate and we are not going to talk on whether it is right or wrong to ask the former President to account for his stewards while in office or not.
“But in asking questions about the actions of his predecessor, we must ask whether such actions would be good precedent or not. However, whatever he does is at his discretion as the president and the commander-in- chief.”
A former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Bode George, also said there was nothing wrong in probing the activities of former President Goodluck Jonathan while in office.
He, however, said the probes being carried out by the EFCC must be holistic, adding that it would be proper for the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, AsiwajuBola Tinubu, who is also a former Governor of Lagos State, to be probed as well.
