Presidency replies Tambuwal’s corruption accusations

10 December 2013, 13:38

Abuja -  Presidency hit back at the Speaker House of Representatives Honorable Aminu Tambuwal for his accusations on President Goodluck Jonathan concerning corruption in the country.

Reacting to the accusation level on the President on Monday by the Speaker, Reuben Abati, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said Jonathan said he cannot fight corruption on the basis of “mere speculation.”

“Tambuwal should focus more on the efforts of the administration in fighting corruption, and comment on what he knows. The administration is not going to fight corruption on the basis of mere speculation, or the bad politics being played by some people,” said Abati.

He said it was unfortunate that a man that is occupying such a high office is “talking about body language.”

“I think it is unfortunate that a man that is occupying such a high office is talking about body language. He is certainly in a position to know the truth and defend both his party and the government.”

Abati urged the Speaker to make effort to know that government is investigating various matters and working on them in accordance with due process.

“He should make the effort to know that government is investigating various matters and working on them in accordance with due process.”

He said President Jonathan will not condone any act of proven corruption.
