President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said some of the most trusted people in his administration have abused the privilege of working for him.
Buhari made this known while responding to a question about recent corruption allegations against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
While the former EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu was suspended in July after corruption charges were levelled against him, the NDDC was also investigated by the House of Representatives which has cascaded to finger-pointing and accomplices in the corruption being investigated..
The President said: “There has been an abuse of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration,” Buhari said on Friday when asked about how he felt about the recent developments.
“A number of assets have been recovered and some money; but we have introduced TSA, Treasury Single Account, where all the money are taken.
“I said assets should be sold and the money put into TSA so the money can be identified at any level. And I will see who will come after us and take it back again to those who misappropriate public funds.”
