Yes, Probe Me, But Probe Others Too, Jonathan Tells Buhari

Outgoing President, Goodluck Jonathan while at the
valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council which he presided over at
the Presidential Villa in Abuja yesterday said he will not ask the incoming
president not to probe him, but he should also probe past governments or else
he will call it a witch-hunt. According to the president, so many things and
governments, including state governors all deserved to be probed. He says past governments have placed Nigeria on a huge debt to the tune of $1bn and he
wondered how they got there. He also spoke about oil wells, oil fields,
marginal wells and others admitting they have not be allocated properly
according to law. Continue…

“Some people are even calling for the probe of this
government. I agree that in Nigeria, there are a number of things that we will
probe; very many things. Even debts owed by states and this nation from 1960 up
to this time. They are saying it is Jonathan’s administration that is owing all
the debts.
“I believe that anybody calling for probe must ensure that
these probes are extended beyond the Jonathan administration, otherwise to me,
it will be a witch-hunt. If you are very sincere, then it is not just the
Jonathan’s administration that should be probed.
“A number of things have gone wrong and we have done our
best to fix them. The Attorney General is aware of the massive judgement debts,
if we aggregate all of them, it is about $1bn. How did we come to this kind of
huge judgement debts? These issues should be probed.

“How do you allocate our oil wells, oil fields, marginal
wells and others? Do we follow our laws? All these should be probed. I believe
all these and many more areas should be looked at,” he said.
