Bukola Saraki

The Federal Government has ordered  a fresh probe to  be conducted to look into the administration of 31 former governors whose tenure in office suggested connection with corrupt practices.

The move by the Federal Government will however put more tension on the embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki who along with other former Governors and current political title holders such as the factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff; and Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio have been named on the list.

Recall that the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, had been reported to have written the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC, requesting that the probe of ex-governors case be reopened revisited.

Part of the letter forwarded by the AGF to ICPC according to Punch reads: “It is clear that some of these governors and other politically-exposed persons have not been charged to court despite the fact that the ICPC has concluded their investigations, concerning allegations levelled against them, for one reason or the other.

“It is the position of the present administration that all ex-governors, who the ICPC had long concluded investigations into the various allegations levelled against them, should be immediately prosecuted.”

The letter further demanded that the ICPC “remit the duplicate case files concerning the politically-exposed persons investigated by the ICPC over the years” to the office
of the AGF in 14-days.
