President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of fighting a personal battle, particularly against leaders of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reacting to the claim, Information Minister, Lai Mohammed said after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at Aso Villa, Abuja: “I think the first point to make is that this government is not micro-managing any of the anti-graft agencies. I know for a fact that they don’t contact the President or anybody before they do their job. I think the media also have to do more than they are doing right now, they should investigate these allegations and also make their independent judgment about them.
“Honestly, if the EFCC or ICPC says they are able to trace certain amount of money to my account, I don’t want you to believe it, I want you to also ask for proof. Do your investigation. I can assure you that this government, no functionary in government micromanages or directs the EFCC or ICPC on who to arrest and who not to arrest.”
