President Muhammadu Buhari

Reacting to the allegation, Adesina said: “We make bold to state unequivocally that President Buhari harasses nobody; he merely allows the law to take its course.

President Muhammadu Buhari has denied claims that he is harassing members of former President, Goodluck Jonathan’s family.

This was made known by the Presidency on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, through a statement by the Special Adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina.

Reacting to the allegation, Adesina said: “We make bold to state unequivocally that President Buhari harasses nobody; he merely allows the law to take its course.

“For the umpteenth time, we say that anybody without a skeleton in his or her cupboard has nothing to fear about the bared fangs of the anti-corruption initiative. Fear belongs only to those who have abused trust while in office."

Continuing, Adesina said: “Anybody who feels aggrieved is free to approach the courts to seek redress or justice. President Buhari believes in the rule of law and that is why his campaign against corruption is anchored on that plank.

“With regard to President Buhari’s anti-graft style, which the former president deprecates, given the scale of revelations and recoveries so far by the anti-corruption agencies, it is obvious that corruption had an uninhibited course during our recent past.

 

“In any case, time will give the verdict on whose style of fighting corruption ultimately yielded the most dividends. For now, President Buhari is resolute and single-minded in the fact that his crusade against graft is not targeted at any individual or group,” Adesina said in the statement.

According to the report, ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was said to have alleged that his family and his personality were being harassed by President Buhari's led administration in a new book, “Against The Run of Play”, written by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Mr Olusegun Adeniyi.

However, Buhari has firmly believed that national interest must always be placed above personal interest, no matter who is involved, , the statement said.
