The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that they should expect surprises, when the report of the findings in the EFCC’s probe of Ibrahim Magu are made public.
The Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Sunday.
Responding to a question on claims by Magu’s lawyers that the probe was a witch-hunt, Shehu said, “I guess this is a question for the Justice Ayo Salami panel and I must say that panel is composed of some of this country’s most honoured people with integrity who will do the right thing.”
“I am not going to pre-empt the panel investigation but I just advice Nigerians to hold their hearts in their hands. By the time they are done with this job and they come out with the reports prepare yourselves for surprises.”
“I don’t know what will come out but if the sense we are getting from what is being done over there is anything to go by, I think that Nigerians should not be confused by any outbursts by anybody.”
The Justice Ayo Salami panel is investigating over 20 allegations against Magu, and Shehu said president Buhari was already privy to some of the findings.
He added that some of the findings will raise eyebrows about Buhari and his administration, but that in the end, he will be vindicated.
