Probe will soon Begin into other Sectors, says Femi Adesina

Investigations would soon begin into other sectors of the economic.
This was revealed by Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, when he visited the Abuja office of the Premium Times, Thursday.
He said investigations into other sectors, such as banking, and petroleum, would soon commence.
A peep into the books of the office National Security Adviser has revealed series of sleazy transactions under the former President Good luck Jonathan.
Adesina declared that if the former President Jonathan is found to have sored his hands in corruption, he would not be spared.
Adesina noted that Buhari would not shield any corrupt person from prosecution, including the former President.
“There is no accord,” he said, “if the corruption fight needs to get there (making Jonathan face justice), it will get there.”
Several top officials who served under Jonathan, as well as his political associates in the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party, are currently being tried, or investigated by the Economic and Financial crimes Commission, for corruption.
On the accusation that the corruption fight has been one sided, against members of PDP alone, Adesina denied the allegations against the President.
“There is no accord that if corruption is proven, it will not be tried,” he said.
“With this President, nobody will be protected. And I underscore it, if it needs to get anywhere, it will get there.”
He emphasized that there was no agreement prior to the March 2015 presidential election that Jonathan would not be made to face trial if corruption allegations were proven against him.
The Presidential spokesman denied the President’s involvement in the release of Maj. Gen. Isa (retd) after the APC member reportedly returned N100 million out of N170 million he was accused of unlawfully receiving from Dasuki.
“If the President had wanted to protect him, he would not have been arrested in the first place”, Adesina said.
