President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday advised Nigerians to stop accusing his ministers and other top government officials of corruption without any concrete evidence.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, the President appealed to Nigerians to ignore “orchestrated attempts” to discredit the ministers and other senior government officials.



Specifically, Buhari faulted media report that the immediate past Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, was being investigated over crude oil swap deals and gas lifting during his tenure as GMD of the petroleum corporation.

The President said while he would not spare anybody who soils his hands, Nigerians should wait until such individuals are indicted.

“Terrible and unfounded comments about other people’s integrity are not good. We are not going to spare anybody who soils his hands, but people should please wait till such individuals are indicted,” he said.

Buhari reiterated the administration’s commitment to probity, accountability and integrity.

He promised that transparency remains a watchword, which would never be trifled with.
