A Former Federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani on Sunday, advised the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to extend the ongoing probe of the suspended Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele to the immediate former President, Muhammadu Buhari, the governors and ministers who served during his tenure.
Disclosing this through his Twitter handle on Sunday, Senator Sani stated that the naira redesigned policy was not the only economic crime perpetrated under Buhari’s administration, noting that President Tinubu should allow a full-scale investigation of the loot that occurred during the administration of the former President.
According to him, the full-scale investigation should start with the former President, the ministers that worked under him, the cabal wings in his government, as well as the service Chiefs that worked under Buhari.
“The redesigning of the Naira is not the only economic Crime perpetrated under the Buhari administration.
“The President should courageously allow a full-scale investigation of the plunder that occurred under the Buhari administration, beginning with Buhari, his ex-ministers, his service chiefs and the cabal wing of his Government,” he wrote.
However, Senator Sani also advised the President not to shield the ex-governors who have started lobbying for positions under his administration, to avoid the ongoing probe, being tagged as selective, if the probe is restricted to some set of people.
“The President should not also shield former Governors who are now at liberty, even waiting for a political appointment as entitled men. One or two persons in the cage can’t answer for the crime perpetrated by others in the last eight years. The current investigation can easily be stained as selective if the probe net is restricted.
“The simple question is; what about others who also contributed to ruining the economy? Or maybe some of us are just too impatient because of a lack of knowledge of what is ahead,” Senator Sani added.
