The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will begin a probe into the financial transactions of former President Goodluck Jonathan‘s ministers and aides. The ministries that are high on the list are those of Power, Petroleum and Defence.
This is according to a report by PunchNG Newspaper:
Findings showed that former ministers, special advisers, heads of parastatals and those of other Federal Government agencies would be invited for interrogation by the EFCC in few weeks from now.
Our correspondents learnt that the anti-graft agency would focus on those whose establishments attracted huge allocations from the Federal Government when Jonathan was in power.
Such ministries and agencies, it was learnt, included defence, petroleum resources and power.
Three top sources in the anti-graft agency confided in one of our correspondents that Lamorde was “determined to expose any corrupt act during the administration of the former President.”
As of right now there has been no official go ahead on that probe.
Reacting to the news, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Alhaji Abdullahi Jalo, said that the party is not afraid of any probe.
“All we are asking for is that there must be fairness and justice, whatever probe they want to carry out must have respect for the rule of law, good conscience and the fear of God.
“Such a probe must not be carried out based on vendetta or simply because somebody does not like the name or the face of somebody.”
