Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has denied insinuations that he asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to stop the probe of a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio, after the latter joined the All Progressives Congress last year.

Buhari said this during an interview aired on Arise TV which was monitored by our correspondent.

The President described as unfair allegations that he was protecting some corrupt persons in his government while those in the opposition were being hounded.

When asked why Akpabio, who was under probe for allegedly diverting N100bn was left untouched, Buhari said he did not know but he did not instruct the EFCC to do so.

The President said he had formed the habit of following due process since his ouster as head of state in 1985 when he was fighting corruption through rash methods.

He said, “I don’t think Akpabio, when he moved to the APC, that I said he should be left alone. I cannot remember asking the EFCC, the ICPC, the police or anybody to spare any corrupt person or incompetent person.

“I haven’t done it and I challenge you to expose any.”

When asked if the anti-graft agencies were acting in line with his body language, he said, “Why should they fear my body language?”

You never told them, but they somehow stopped when he crossed over to your party.

The dullard is clearly not in charge of his brain when he speaks.

since akpabio joined APC, his case with EFCC has died down.

My main anger is with youths of this nation that are allowing politicians use us to clean their shoes.

PMB is right. He doesn't know. I blame EFCC not him. Sai Baba till 2023.
Re: I Never Told EFCC To Stop Akpabio Probe – Buhari by Jeezuzpick(m): 4:09pm On Jan 08
No need to tell dem naa!

No be just to defect go APC?

In the EFCC OS, the "Upgrade To Saint" (UTS) program runs by default for defectors to APC.

Mr President should kindly shock us by instructing his goon (Magu) to dock Akpabio ASAP!

Anyone who watched the interview without bias or sentiments could at least give a pass mark to PMB.

The interviewers didn't go easy on him at all.

The analysis done by Arise is also a succinct one.

Chai! Imagine the president of the the most populous Africa country denying the knowledge of not knowing how corruption cases against some corrupt leaders is been fought. Another four years of buhari's rule is four years of cabals looting and stealing our national wealth but God big pass them.
