Flash: Jonathan Not Probing Ezekwesili, Obasanjo – Presidency

Alhaji Ahmed Ali Gulak, aide to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Affairs yesterday in Abuja has said the president is not probing ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Gulak said rather, it is Jonathan’s administration that is being probed by the National Assembly through many investigative hearings and other probes into the affairs of governmental agencies and government officials.

“I believe former President Obasanjo expressed his opinion or his fear. But I tell you President Jonathan has not said the administration will probe Mrs Ezekwesili,” Gulak said.

Former President Obasanjo had on Sunday at the 50th birthday thanksgiving service in honour of former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili in Abuja challenged President Jonathan to probe him on his eight-year tenure instead of persecuting his cabinet ministers.

The aide also denied insinuations that the president is witch-hunting Governor Chibuike Amaechi by grounding his private jet.

“The fact that you are governor and plying private jet does not mean you should do things that are not within the confines of the law and the fact that you are a governor does not mean you should flout the law. President Jonathan is ready to work with anybody who emerges as chairman of the forum,” Gulak said.
