Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari is reportedly in possession of some handwritten letters by former President, Goodluck Jonathan which implicates him of corruption while serving as head of state, Naij reports.
According to reports, it is alleged that the letter includes a request by Jonathan for "off-budget funds" which would not form part of the Federal Government budget.
This was revealed in a new authorised biography on Muhammadu Buhari titled, 'Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria,' by Prof. John Paden.

The book however claims that the stability of Nigeria's political system would be at stake if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) would investigate Jonathan or any other former president.
Buhari however would only initiate an investigation for the purpose of retrieving the stolen funds from corrupt government officials.
"Would the trail lead to former President Jonathan himself? As of the early months of 2016, it appeared that the EFCC was not going after Jonathan. Nor was it going after former President Obasanjo.
"The question of the stability of the entire political system seemed at stake, excerpts from the book read.
News24 reported that the biography also revealed how Buhari chose Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo as his running partner in the 2015 presidential elections despite strong opposition from All Progressives Congress national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Contrary to these claims made though, it was revealed that Tinubu rejected the vice presidency which he made clear in an official statement in 2014.
