President Muhammadu Buhari has said that some of his appointees have abused the trust he had for them.
Mr. Buhari spoke on Friday in Abuja while responding to a question from press after a Sallah service.
The President who has been known to condemn the previous government under Goodluck Jonathan for abuse of trust and corruption, however, blamed his own government for the first time, for the same failings.
The President was asked questions about the recent corruption allegations arising from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
In response, Buhari said;“There has been an abuse of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration.”
“A number of assets have been recovered and some money; but we have introduced TSA, Treasury Single Account, where all the money are taken.
“I said assets should be sold and the money put into TSA so the money can be identified at any level. And I will see who will come after us and take it back again to those who misappropriate public funds.”
Recall that President Buhari had suspended Ibrahim Magu as the Acting Chairman of the EFCC following allegation of mismanagement of recovered loots among other charges brought against him by the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister Justice.
Also the House of Representatives is publicly investigating financial misappropriation at the NDDC amid a plethora of drama with calls being made for the sack of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
