‘Jonathan’s ministers, aides not victimised by Buhari’ …. VANGUARD

jonaFORMER Police Affairs Minister, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, has said neither himself  nor his colleagues and their aides are being victimised by the new administration.

Speaking with newsmen in Akure, the Ondo state capital, Adesiyan said probing the ministers should not be seen as victimization by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

Adesiyan however  kicked against the selective probe of the President Jonathan administration but said that it should be holistic “even when President Buhari was the military Head of State”

The minister, who was asked to react to alleged victimization of former Ministers under the Jonathan administration said “I am not seeing them doing it.

“I was a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, whatever you are doing, you must be prepared because somebody somewhere, some time will ask questions.

“When Chief Obasanjo, the past President   wrote a book: “My Watch,” somebody, Yinka Odumakin wrote another book: “Watch the Watcher.”

“Whatever they are doing today, somebody will do it to them tomorrow now; what they are doing is not new and it is good.

“When I was being appointed as a minister, I knew there would be a day of reckoning one time, and that was why I had to caution myself and make sure that everything I did was done by the rule, everything I did from the beginning to the end, followed due process. I trust most of the ministers did that too.’’
