Obasanjo Challenges Jonathan to Probe Him Instead of Descending on his Ministers
Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo has challenged the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan to probe his eight-year administration instead of the Present descend on some cabinet ministers who served under him by the Jonathan administration.
Mr Obasanjo who gave the charge at the 50th birthday thanksgiving of former minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili in Abuja, said he is ready to account for his stewardship.
He said if the present government finds anything wrong with his administration, he would bear the responsibility.
The former President was reacting to the recent moves to probe Mrs Ezekwesili by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and challenge thrown to the former World Bank VP by the presidency to account for her tenure as Minister of Education.
“I have always said this, whatever you want to blame in my government, blame me, and don’t blame any of those people who assisted me. If there is any credit to dispense we share it, Obasanjo said.
“But for anything you want to say is wrong, I was the one in charge and I was in charge.”
