The presidency yesterday stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will ensure that those accused of stealing public funds are proven guilty before sent to jail.

?This administration will give full regard to due process and the rule of law in the prosecution of its war against corruption?, he said at an audience with a delegation from the Foursquare Gospel Church.

Buhari also restated his commitment to recovering stolen funds.


Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina quoted the president as saying that his anti-corruption war ?would be fully within the ambit of the law?.

?Under military rule, people could be arrested and held on the basis of suspicion, but in a true democracy, anyone accused of an offence must be presumed innocent till pronounced guilty by a court of law.


?President Buhari said that his administration was therefore diligently building up its case against those accused of stealing government funds, getting necessary evidence and facts, before formal charges are brought against them.?

Adesina disclosed that Buhari congratulated the Foursquare Church in Nigeria on its 60th anniversary convention, which was concluded on Sunday.


In his remarks, the general overseer of the Foursquare Gospel Church, Rev Felix Meduoye, hailed the Buhari administration its strides in the war against corruption and insurgency.

He assured that the church will continue to pray for the peace and prosperity of Nigeria.
