President Muhammadu Buhari, has said revealed why he is unable to prosecute the former minister of petroleum resources, Deizani Alison-Madueke and other petroleum workers over what he called lack of evidence.
According to Breaking Times report, the president stated this in an exclusive interview with Peter Okwoche of the BBC, after attending a conference on the ongoing Syrian crisis.
Okwoche in a series of tweets quoted the president to have said: “To prosecute corruption successfully we need evidence. That’s not easy especially in petroleum sector.”
President Buhari had earlier threatened to prosecute all those who dipped their hand into the nation’s wealth for private use and among those brandished and suspected to be prosecuted is Alison-Madueke.
