The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay has commended the anti-graft war of the administration, downplaying criticisms over President Muhammadu Buhari‘s handling of allegations against top government officials.
Sagay said Buhari’s critics were being “extremely unreasonable” and desperate to find fault.
He disagreed with critics – in the wake of the reinstatement/disengagement of the former pension’s boss, Abdulrasheed Maina.
“People who are determined to find wrong will find it no matter how pure the situation is,” said Sagay in an interview with Premium Times on Saturday.
Speaking further, Sagay faulted the demand that the Interior Minister, Abdulrahman Dambazzau and the Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami, be fired for their role in the recall.
“These are early days. Inquiries are going on to find out the role of everybody. He is not going to fire anybody without getting all the sides. Do you know he even wrote the Head of Service? It is when investigation is concluded, that you start hearing action being taken,” said Sagay.
