VP Osinbajo Says Jonathan Not A Target of Probes

Listen to article

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday dismissed suggestions that the

Buhari Administration is witch hunting former President Goodluck Jonathan

with the probe of the activities of some agencies.
On the contrary, he said the administration's anti-corruption stance is

designed to check corruption in all areas of the nation's life.

“It's not about a probe of a past government, that's not what this is

about. We are talking about our future, we are saying that we must put in

place a clear strategy going forward,” the vice president said at the

funeral of Madam Elizabeth Adesola Mamora, mother of Senator  Olorunmibe

Mamora, at  the First Baptist Church, Ijebu-Ife, Ogun State..

“Not just about ensuring that people are made to pay for looting the

treasury, our system of justice must be fair to ensure that anybody who

does anything that is wrong is brought to account. We can't allow impunity

to continue. So it's not about the previous government, it's about any

form of impunity,” he stressed.
Vice President Osinbajo said the anti-corruption effort of the government

is a genuine programme aimed at sanitizing the country.

In his sermon at the service, the head of the Baptist Church in Ogun

State, Pastor Segun Jaiyesimi, challenged political leaders to make

positive change while alive, especially when they are holding public

office as there will be no opportunity to do so after death.

The ceremony drew a large crowd of friends, associates  and relations from

far and near including APC leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief  Bisi Akande,

Governor  Ibikunle Amosun  of Ogun State, Governor  Akinwunmi Ambode of

Lagos State, former governors of Ogun, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and the

immediate past governor of Rivers, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi.
