"Jonathan Will Not Probe Obasanjo"

Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Affairs, Alhaji Ahmed Ali Gulak has said the president is not probing former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He told newsmen yesterday in Abuja that it was even the Jonathan’s administration that is being probed by the National Assembly through many investigative hearings and other probes into the affairs of governmental agencies and government officials.

Obasanjo on Sunday in Abuja at the 50th birthday thanksgiving service in honour of former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, said Jonathan should go ahead and probe his eight year tenure and stop harassing ministers who served during his tenure.

“I believe former President Obasanjo expressed his opinion or his fear. But I tell you President Jonathan has not said the administration will probe Mrs Ezekwesili,” Gulak said.

He also denied that the president is witch-hunting Governor Chibuike Amaechi by grounding his private jet. “The fact that you are governor and plying private jet does not mean you should do things that are not within the confines of the law and the fact that you are a governor does not mean you should flout the law.

President Jonathan is ready to work with anybody who emerges as chairman of the forum,” he said.
