Buhari Exonerates Amaechi of Corruption, Says His Ministers Not Corrupt

President Mohammudu Buhari has once again defended his cabinet from corruption charges. This according to Vanguard report came on the day the Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo refuted the claims in some quarters that the anti-corruption fight of President Mohammudu Buhari is targeted at the members of the opposition party and other perceived enemies, saying the view was grossly incorrect and unfounded.

It could be recalled that the President had during his first media chat, said none of his ministers  was corrupt.

In his word, "I don't think I tolerate corruption, I don't think I picked anyone who would embarrass me. But if you have any evidence about any of my ministers, I accept responsibility for the 36 ministers thst I have".

"I don't think I took anybody among the ministers who has got a case in court. Tell me one out of the 36. I don't think I will deliberately make such mistake," said the president.

But the question that the majority of Nigerians are asking is, what of the corruption allegations levelled against his Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi? Nigerians will want to know if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has actually probed Mr. Amaechi and certify him free from corrupt practices. If not, why would Mr. President verbally exonerate all his Ministers including Amaechi of corruption?
