The All Progressives Congress has said President Muhammadu Buhari will not interfere in the on-going probe of some of his ministerial nominees.It also said the President will not spare any of them found guilty of corruption by a court of competent jurisdiction, even after they have been confirmed by the Senate.
Deputy National Chairman (North) of the party, Senator Lawali Shuaibu, said this in an interview with reporters in Abuja, on Sunday.
He explained that the President’s commitment to the anti-graft war is such that, he would not shield anyone even members of the party who were proven to be corrupt.
Shuaibu said, “You see the president has said several times that he believes in the rule of law, that he respects the rule of the law. Anything that is not in line with the constitution and the extant laws of this country, he would not go for it.
“When it comes to the issue of the choice of people who will serve as ministers in his administration, I believe that until one is convicted in the law court, we will be chasing shadows on the basis of suspicions and assumptions.
“I think, quite frankly, that he is not going to stop any investigation against any member of his cabinet.
