Aides of former President Goodluck Jonathan have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being selective in his anti-corruption war.

The group lamented the disparity in the ongoing investigations into cases of corrupt practices against some political appointees under the last administration.

The former political aides under the aegis of the Voice of the South-South, declared that though they support the anti-corruption crusade of the Buhari administration, it would be balanced if the President extends his probe beyond Jonathan?s government.

They also claimed that Buhari had excluded some former president?s aides who hail from northern Nigeria and other stalwarts of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The group, in a statement issued at the end of an emergency meeting presided over by the state chairman, Mr. Alex Dumbo and the chairman of the group?s Board of Trustees, Mr. Mike Ogiasa, stated that the cases of the for?mer Petroleum Minister, Mrs. Deziani Allison-Madueke and the late Chief D.S.P Alamieyeseigha had shown the bias of President Buhari in handling anti-corruption matters.

The statement read in part, ?First, we observed that immediately the past Minister of Petroleum Resources was purportedly arrested in London, the Department for Security Service (DSS) promptly invaded her home in Nigeria. Apart from Mrs. Allison-Madueke, we are yet to see or hear of arrest of any of the other 42 ministers that served in the immediate past administration.

?The second incident is the late Chief D.S.P Alamieyeseigha, who the APC led Federal Government recently claimed, the British Government has requested for his extradition to the United Kingdom, in connection with a case for which he has been tried, con?victed, served prison terms and later granted ?presidential pardon? in Nigeria.
