APC Chief Asks Buhari To Probe Patience Jonathan

Factional Chairman, All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, Chief Perekeme Kpodo, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to beam his administration’s probe searchlight on former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

He said such a development would unravel the financial excesses allegedly perpetrated by Patience in Abuja and Bayelsa State.

Kpodo, former Interim Chairman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party, stated this in an interview on Sunday.

He said, “There is the urgent need to probe the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, for her excesses during her husband’s reign. Many of the ministers during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan were her nominees and so she should be investigated also.

“Her antecedents during and after the last general elections must not be forgotten so easily. She was one of the people who turned Aso Rock to a toll gate. The same thing happened to Bayelsa State as treasury was looted. All these must not be swept under the carpet. We are fully in support of President Muhammadu Buhari on his probe.”

The former Special Adviser on Security in Bayelsa State commended the President on how he had been steering the ship of the country since he mounted the saddle of leadership, stressing that Buhari would offer Nigerians the needed change the party promised during its electioneering.

He said because of Buhari’s tough stance on corruption, many would-be lobbyists for ministerial appointments were scared of him.

Kpodo also applauded Buhari for the appointment of substantive coordinator for Presidential Amnesty Programme for the Niger Delta.

He said the gesture would tackle the rising agitation in the region, particularly with the issue of payment of stipends to ex-agitators and meeting the obligations of Niger Delta students on amnesty scholarships abroad.
