President Muhammadu Buhari has told former President Goodluck Jonathan that there would be no hiding place for corrupt public officials who looted national treasury. He insisted that his administration would recover all the loots whenever they are traced. President Buhari made this clearly known when he met with Jonathan last week at Aso Rock
Buhari also restated his pledge that Jonathan had nothing to fear at all, according to a source who pleaded not to be named because of the “sensitivity” of the matter.
The meeting was the first time Jonathan visited Aso Rock since he left office on May 29. It was parley was arranged by Abdulsalami following Jonathan’s complaint that Buhari is not keeping to the Peace Accord agreement they entered into before he left office.
Jonathan reportedly expected that any steps or actions the President intends to take; it should be within the framework of the peace accord the two leaders signed. Obviously, he wanted soft landing. He also pledged to cooperate with Buhari as much as possible on all steps he is going to take.
The President reassured Jonathan that he has no personal agenda against him. But he insisted that whatever was stolen from the treasury must be returned.
When contacted, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, said: “I am aware that President Buhari met with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan but it was behind closed doors. I don’t have the details of what they discussed.”
