“If you probe only me, I will see it as a witch-hunt” – Pres. Jonathan tells Buhari

By Segun Odeleye

At the valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council today at the state house in Abuja, Pres. Goodluck Jonathan advised the incoming administration not to narrow its probe to just him and his administration otherwise it would be seen as a witch-hunt by him.

Jonathan stated that he was aware that some Nigerians want Buhari to conduct a probe.

The President said that there are lots of things which need to be probed, from the debts the country owes to allocated oil blocs.

“Some people are even calling for the probe of the government, but I think in Nigeria, there are a lot of many things that will be probed, very many things, even debts owed by states and debts owed by this country from 1960 up to this time. They say it is Jonathan’s administration that owes these debts.

“I believe that anybody that is coming for probe must also ensure that this probe is extended beyond the Jonathan administration. Otherwise, to me, it will be witch-hunt. If we are very sincere, it is not only the Jonathan’s administration that should be probed,” he said.
