VP Osinbajo Says Jonathan Not A Target of Probes
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.
