"Extend probe beyond my administration" - Jonathan to Buhari

Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, says those calling for the probe of his government should ensure that such probes are extended beyond the Jonathan administration, otherwise it will be seen as witch hunting.

President Jonathan was speaking while presiding over the valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The President pointed out that a number of things have gone wrong including some errors in the allocation of oil wells and oil fields without following the laws.

President Jonathan also decried the recent fuel crisis at the end of his administration, insecurity in the nation and the various strikes since the beginning of his administration, describing them as politically motivated and designed to bring his administration on its knees

He then insisted that he has done well and was pleased to work with members of his cabinet, adding that they were able to navigate the ship of government together.

The President of the most populous country in Africa also promised to interact more with the ministers after leaving office on May 29.
