Ben Agande, Abuja.
President Goodluck Jonathan Wednesday said any body that is considering probe of government should not restrict it to his administration but extend it to other administrations before him, as limiting the probe to only his administration would amount to a witch hunt.
In a speech at the Valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council, President scored his administration high despite the difficult operating environment that prevailed during his tenure.
He attributed the on going fuel shortage and strike by some unions in the oil sector to acts of sabotage by some persons who are bent on bringing his administration to its knee “even with just few days” to go.
He said: “Some people are even calling for the probe of this government, I agree in Nigeria there are a number of things that we will probe, very many things. Even debts owed by states and this nation from 1960 up to this time they say it is Jonathan’s administration that is owing all the debt.
“I believe that anybody calling for probe must ensure that these probes are extended beyond the Jonathan administration otherwise to me it will be witch hunting. If you are very sincere then is not just the Jonathan’s administration that should be probed.
