EFCC Set to Probe Financial Transactions of GEJ’s Former Ministers & Aides

Published

Jonathan Goodluck

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly concluded plans to start probing the financial transactions of former President Goodluck Jonathan‘s ministers and aides.

According to Punch, the agency will focus investigations on those whose establishments attracted huge allocations from the Federal Government when Jonathan was in power.

The report further states that some of the ministries to be probed include defence, petroleum resources and power.

An unnamed EFCC source is said to have stated:

“I am not aware of anybody who has been summoned or interrogated by the commission. Those to be interrogated would be determined by the gravity of the allegations against them as contained in the petitions.

What happened last week was that a directive was issued to move all petitions against public office holders under the former President to the office of the Chairman.

The files will be studied and assigned to units to handle the investigations. It is based on the petitions that people will be summoned.

“Most likely next week, action would be taken on those petitions…”

However, Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwajaren, said he wasn’t aware of any such probe.

“I am not aware of the directive you are talking about. It is not to my knowledge,” he said to newsmen.

    Let’s be real they have to. I don’t think GEJ was necessarily a bad man but he enabled a lot of stealing. Going by the stories GEJ was drunk half of the time anyway so maybe he didn’t even know what he was signing. Plus that excuse of saying Buhari should probe all past administrations first is silly, GEJ should have probed obj and so on. Whoever comes after Buhari should probe his own administration, in naija it’s hard to find records for the whole of GEJ’ s tenure sef (burning things lol) talk less of older administrations

      It’s Silly and a form of distraction to say probe past leaders especially when nobody had the guts to do such. Buhari is big on probing, so whoever who be the scapegoat, let it be. I hope whoever comes after Buhari will also probe his administration. It’s that simple, it has to start from somewhere and follow up.

    Witch Hunting? Abeg, make I hear ‘word’…

    These guys should be made to account! Even Jesus did that in Matthew Matthew 25:14-30
    Start with Okonjo Iweala…Diezani Madueke..Ministry of Defence, Power and even Aviation! Stella Oduah should be brough back from Retirement…
    Wike should probe Amaechi!!! Am all in Support!!! But to call PMB probing ministries at the federal level a ‘witchhunting exercise’…You are the problem of Nigeria!

    Nigeria would be great!

      @ Ifeanyi… Go ahead probe them and let’s make OBj, Babanga, Atiku, and all the people in possession of our oil well by whatever means saints. I guess that’s how to make Nigeria great.
      In fact you all need to probe yours faithfully too.
      Step aside Neldon Mandela, OBJ. is indeed the hero of our time.
      Uncle Fela Kuti, you were wrong about Obj!

    And they rightfully should. It was announced yesterday during the US visit that $156billion was stolen in six years. That is a filthy amount of money. Even their next 50 generation can not finish spending that crazy amount of money. That is 100x more than all former administration stole. And that is even what we know. Wo bia ole. They should all be taken to the firing squad. I hope Buhari will not allow negotiating a deal with them. Dieziene I read offered $250M back last week. It shows they admit all we’ve always known, that they gluttonously stole money. Can anyone imagine what half of $156 could have done to the infrastructure in our country. They are all pure cut BASTARDS-Jonathan, his whores and his ugly wife!

    @ Talk is cheap, you must be a very saucy person bearing in mind your comments and replies most time. I am wondering what the heck is your problem. Abi you are one of the ministers who stole from the purse now hiding under that name. Or you are one of Jona’s whores. Walahi whatever class you belong to, you will definitely pay for your atrocities because Nemesis will catch up with you and everything that you have swallowed, you will vomit. Solicitor and advocate for Jona.
