Buhari denies targeting Jonathan in corruption figh

Nigeria's presidency has defended President Muhammadu Buhari over allegations that his anti-corruption fight is targeting former President Goodluck Jonathan and his family.

A statement said that Mr Buhari was just allowing the law to take its course.

It was a reacting to a story that appeared on ThisDay newspaper headlined: Buhari's Gvt Harassing My Family, Says Jonathan.

The paper said former the former president made the allegation in a new book Against The Run of Play, written by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Olusegun Adeniyi.

The statement defends Mr Buhari saying that those who are not guilty should not fear his war on corruption.

Anybody without a skeleton in his or her cupboard, has nothing to fear about the bared fangs of the anti-corruption initiative. Fear belongs only to those who have abused trust while in office." It criticises Mr Jonathan's anti-corruption fight saying that "time will give the verdict on whose style of fighting corruption ultimately yielded the most dividends".

It ends that "he [Mr Buhari] firmly believes that national interest must always be placed above personal interest, no matter who is involved".
