'Okonjo-Iweala may never be found guilty of corruption'

14 September 2016, 18:07

Abuja - Transition Committee Chairman, Ahmed Joda, said his panel did not find anything to believe a former Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, was guilty of graft, Naij reports.

Okonjo-Iweala served last in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Joda, who spoke with select journalists in Yola, Adamawa State, said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which had beamed its searchlight on the last administration, might never find Okonjo-Iweala guilty of any wrongdoing, despite the various financial malfeasances that had been traced to the Jonathan administration.

However, Joda expressed surprise at Okonjo-Iweala’s, action of not resigning her position even when it became obvious that many people in the administration were not acting in good conscience.

Joda said this while responding to a suggestion on whether or not Buhari could bring back the likes of the former Finance Minister to help the administration fix the economy.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had announced earlier in the year that it will soon conduct investigations into the nation's gas and oil industry as part of the Federal Government's war against corruption according to News24.

According to Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the EFCC, the roles of some of the principal officers within President Goodluck Jonathan's administration are set to be probed, including Diezani Alison-Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources, as well as Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Minister of Finance.
