Youth Urges FCT Minister, to probe JIBA over IGR

Former Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Prof Rufai Ahmed Alkali yesterday appealed to media practitioners and members of the political class to refrain from speculations over probe of past administration by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
In a statement issued in Abuja, Prof Alkali said dramatisation of serious issues is diverting the attention and energy of Nigerians towards consolidating on the gains of democracy in country.
The statement read: “I am constrained to respond to the continuous media reports in recent times concerning the ongoing investigations into the past administration of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the campaign funds of the Jonathan/Sambo 2015 Presidential Campaign Organization, PCO.
“All this long, I have resisted the urge and temptations to join issues with the sponsors and writers of these stories, hoping that in good time, they will know the truth.
“However, it has become imperative at this stage, to urge writers of those stories to allow the security agencies, who are made up of highly competent and well trained professionals, to handle the investigations diligently.
“My resolve to keep silent since these issues were first reported in the papers was mainly because of my fair understanding and respect of the system having served my country in various capacities over the years.
“The issues under investigation are within the powers of the relevant agencies charged with the constitutional responsibility to do so and I believe that the agencies have been doing their work without any interference by anyone.
“I therefore have absolute confidence in the ability and capacities of the men and women who are saddled with this rather difficult task of cleansing the system to do their work in line with their mandate.
“In my view it is time we move away from the dramatization of serious issues and focus our attention and energy towards consolidating on the gains of democracy in our country.
“Let me state here that contrary to popular notions, it is not PDP leaders that are on trial. It is not even the former PDP Government alone that is on trial.
“It is the ruling elite in the country that is on trial over our individual and collective failures. And each and every one of us will, at some stage in life, face and hopefully past the integrity test.”
