Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the claims of EFCC boss. Mrs. Farida Waziri that she was sacked because she arrested a suspect on oil subsidy scam.
Farida Waziri told the press about the monumental corruption that took place under the watch of the ex-President Jonathan unabated.
â€œIâ€™m only glad that those things didnâ€™t happen under my watch as the EFCC Chairman because it would have been too traumatic for me, she said.
â€œAnd that is why if I see President Jonathan today, I will kneel down to thank him for the honour done me by removing me as the EFCC Chairman at the time he didâ€ she said.
â€œMy first strong premonition of what was ahead was when I began the probe of the monumental oil subsidy fraud going on thenâ€.
â€œI came to Lagos on a vital intelligence on the subsidy scam and as soon as I arrested a key culprit, I got a call from the Presidential Villa asking me to release the suspect, because, in their words, â€˜he is our personâ€™, but I refused to let him off and days after, I was removed from officeâ€.
But the former President on his verified and official twitter handle, on Wednesday said crime has no status bar.
â€œIf Farida is not telling lies, she should mention the person or company she was investigating and she was stopped, let the EFCC investigate. Crime has no status bar. if she canâ€™t, then she was simply hired to attack meâ€ he said.
If Farida is not telling lies she should mention the person or company she was investigating and she was stopped, let the @officialEFCC investigate. Crime has no statute bar. If she canâ€™t then she was simply hired to attack me.
