President Goodluck Jonathan has welcomed a probe of his administration but said anyone considering it must be ready to extend it to other administrations before him, as limiting the probe to only his administration would amount to a witchhunt.
Jonathan said this at the Valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council today, where he highlighted the achievements of his administration despite the difficult operating environment.
Commenting on the ongoing fuel scarcity, Jonathan said, that, as well as strike by some unions in the oil sector were acts of sabotage by some persons who are bent on bringing his administration to its knee.
“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 witchhunting. If you are very sincere then is not just the Jonathan’s administration that should be probed,” he said.
