I’m not harassing your family, Buhari tells Jonathan

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday , said he was not harassing the
family of former President Goodluck Jonathan or any other persons in the current administration ’ s ongoing fight against corruption as claimed by Jonathan.

He said anybody , who did not have skeleton in his or her cupboard , had nothing to fear about the ongoing anti- graft war.

Buhari said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity , Mr . Femi Adesina , while reacting 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.

The former President was also quoted to have disagreed with the style being used by the present administration in its anti- graft fight.

But Buhari said given the scale of revelations and recovery of funds so far by the anti - corruption agencies, it was obvious that corruption had “ an uninhibited course during our recent past . ”
While stating that 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.

He said his belief was that national interest
must always be placed above personal
interest, no matter who was involved.
