President Muhammadu Buhari-led government on Sunday asked Nigerians to prepare for surprises as the presidential panel probing the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, is set to release the report of their investigation.
The development was revealed by the spokesman to the President, Garba Shehu while speaking On Channels TV’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Sunday.
The Presidential aide noted that the Presidency has been receiving some updates from the investigation carried out by a panel led by Justice Ayo Salami.
Shehu called on Nigerians to ignore the report making rounds that the investigation carried out by the panel is questionable.
Responding to a question on claims by Magu’s lawyers that the probe was a witch-hunt, Shehu said, “I guess this is a question for the Justice Ayo Salami panel and I must say that panel is composed of some of this country’s most honoured people with integrity who will do the right thing.”
“I am not going to pre-empt the panel investigation but I just advice Nigerians to hold their hearts in their hands. By the time they are done with this job and they come out with the reports prepare yourselves for surprises.”
“I don’t know what will come out but if the sense we are getting from what is being done over there is anything to go by, I think that Nigerians should not be confused by any outbursts by anybody.”
He further stated that the probe of the suspended EFCC boss may cause temporary embarrassment to the Federal Government but at the end, the government would be vindicated.
