President Muhammadu Buhari has denied reports that he directed the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to stop the probe of former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Akpabio, who was a former member of the Peoples Democratic Party before defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last year, has come under heavy criticism for some alleged corrupt acts.
However, during an interview on Arise TV on Monday night, Buhari revealed that he never asked any of the security agencies to spare any corrupt person.
“I don’t think Akpabio, when he moved to the APC, that I said he should be left alone. I cannot remember asking the EFCC, the ICPC, the police or anybody to spare any corrupt person or incompetent person.
“I haven’t done it and I challenge you to expose any.”
