He recently revealed this via a statement signed by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he is very happy with the outcome of the trial because it revealed the truth about the lopsided nature of the anti-corruption policy under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He added that the entire anti-corruption trials from Buhari’s government appears to be focused on opposition politicians, so it cannot be taken seriously.
His words, “The entire anti-corruption trials appear to be focused on opposition politicians, thereby casting doubts on the credibility of the anti graft agency.”
“As a young man of great intellect and confidence, I’m confident that you are up to the task. You must be ready to restore the glory of the EFCC by changing its public perception as a political tool of the government in power. Let your conscience and history judge you. But you can only do so if you resist external manipulation. May Allah guide you right.”
