The Buhari's administration is not in The business of arresting just anyone-Vice President Osinbajo
During an interactive session with US based Nigerians in Houston,Texas, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said that the federal government won’t interject with the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as regards former president Goodluck Jonathan.
Osinbajo, mentioned this in response to a question asked by one of the attendees on whether the former president would be arrested for corruption during his administration, he stated that the Buhari’s administration was not in the business of arresting just anyone, indiscriminately.
According to him, "all that the administration does is to empower security agencies and the anti-corruption agencies to do their jobs without the administration trying to tele-guide them.”
However, he said, “corruption is not an ethnic thing, there is an equal representation in the stealing as no one operates with his/her ethnic group alone. The culprits are in every case seen so far, united by greed to steal and not by ethnic or religious interest.”
