The Presidency on Friday said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is free to investigate former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The Special Adviser to President Muhammdu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, stated this in Abuja on Friday, while explaining that there was no secret pact between President Buhari and Jonathan to exclude the ex-President from the list of corrupt people to be probed by this administration.
Saturday PUNCH quoted Adesina as saying that the Presidency had given the anti-corruption body a free hand to investigate and try anybody involved in corrupt practices. He said that the President was not interested in teleguiding the anti-graft agency.
He also said that the president did not sign any pact with former President Goodluck Jonathan or any past President, exempting them from being probed.
