Flash: Stop Witch-Hunting My Cabinet Ministers, I Was In Charge, Probe Me Instead – Ex-President Obasanjo To FG

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has said he is ready for a probe of his eight-year administration instead of the present administration descending on his cabinet ministers.

Mr Obasanjo, who made the criticism 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.

He said, “I have always said this, whatever you want to blame in my government, blame me, don’t blame any of those people who assisted me. If there is any credit to dispense we share it.

“But for anything you want to say is wrong, I was the one in charge and I was in charge.”

  2. I like his character and courage but he should not deny the fact that there was no wrong doing during his eight years leadership. He has shown he led and those who supported him should be respected nevertheless if there is reasons to probe those who commit crime during his time president GEJ should prosecute them.
