Buhari through his media aide, Femi Adesina said he was not harassing the household of former President Goodluck Jonathan or any other persons in his administration’s ongoing fight against corruption as claimed by the former President.

The president said anybody who did not have skeleton in his or her cupboard had nothing to fear about the ongoing anti-graft war.
Buhari’s statement delivered to the media by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, was a reaction to an allegation credited to Jonathan in a book “Against The Run of Play”, written by the Chairman of ThisDay, Editorial Board, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi, that his family was being harassed by the present government.
Punch reports that the former President was also quoted to have disagreed with the style being used by the present administration in fighting corruption.
But Buhari said given the scale of revelations and recoveries so far by the anti-corruption agencies, it was obvious that corruption had “an uninhibited course during our recent past.”
While saying he was resolute in the fight, the President said time would give the verdict on whose style of fighting corruption ultimately yielded the most dividends.
