Nigeria – New information has come to light about the secret meeting between President Muhammadu Bahari and his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan at the Aso Villa earlier this month.
According to New Telegraph, Buhari confronted Jonathan with evidence of discreet probes that was conducted by the new government on the officials that served in the immediate past administration.
The proofs of high-level of corruption committed under Jonathan’s presidency were on unwholesome oil deals, arm purchase, diversion of funds and other infractions.
It was learnt that Buhari had to present this evidence to prove to Jonathan that his anti-corruption war was not meant to witch hunt anyone as the opposition to the fight against official corruption would want the public to believe.
Jonathan reportedly told Buhari that he was not aware of many of the corruption cases allegedly committed by his aides, including that of his chiefs of staff, who could have helped him to unravel the alleged shady deals committed by some top officials.
The former president was said to have reportedly assured Buhari of his willingness to cooperate with the new government if the need arises.
