Buhari's office denies closure of Jonathan's accounts

07 October 2016, 21:30

Abuja - The Presidency has dismissed allegations former President Goodluck Jonathan's bank accounts had been frozen.

It also denied stopping the allowances due to Jonathan.

Protesting youths on Thursday made the allegations in Bayelsa State Jonathan's home state.

“The allegation by demonstrators in Bayelsa State on Thursday that allowances due to a former president have been stopped and his bank accounts frozen is patently untrue,” responded the Presidency through a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

Shehu said the Presidency believed there is "a clear motive for the demonstration that is different from that which was being canvassed.”

“This is a premeditated attempt to blame President Muhammadu Buhari for something he knows nothing about.”

Shehu said the claims are false and poorly sourced to present a picture of vendetta.

“President Buhari remains committed to the ideals of justice and fairness to all, irrespective of creed, religion and political leanings. His administration will not engage in vendetta.”

There have been rumours Jonathan was under probe for alleged corruption blamed on the immediate past government.
