President Buhari has told EFCC and other anti-graft agencies to probe even his own children or members of his family implicated in corrupt practices, saying he won’t forgive the anti-graft agency if it fails to probe any allegation of corruption against his children and family members.
A sketch of Buhari’s tough anti-corruption mindset and plans was contained in a book, “Muhammadu Buhari: The challenges of leadership in Nigeria”, which is authored by Prof. John Paden. The book reveals how Buhari inspired the acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu as a school boy to develop anti-graft traits.
“Buhari’s attitude is to let the chips fall where they may in particular cases, although reform of the judiciary is one of his larger goals. Buhari has often said that if any of his own children were accused of corruption, and the authorities did not investigate, he would never forgive the authorities.”
