I Won’t Go To Jail, You Can’t Accuse Me Of Stealing – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he cannot go to jail because is satisfied with what he has. In a statement on Monday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari noted that he does not rely on proceeds from government contracts.

“I have been in many places including (Ministry of) Petroleum. I would have gone to jail if I had taken an oil well. For integrity and honesty, I have no regrets. By this, I have contributed to my social safety. I won’t go to jail,” he told a delegation of the Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria at the State House in Abuja.

“I am satisfied with what I am. I am happy I have kept myself and people close to me from benefiting from government contracts,” the President added. He said he did not award contracts and did not care about who got them, so long as they did a good job at a cost that is justifiable to the nation.

The President, who said he had been accused of many things, said his critics cannot accuse him of stealing. “You cannot accuse me of stealing,” he said. “I have appointed ministers and they are in charge. I appeal to their integrity.” “When they come here to the (Federal Executive Council) Chambers, we ensure they follow the due process. If I owned an oil well, I would have gone to jail,” President Buhari insisted. He further responded to a number of issues raised by the delegation, including complaints that Muslims had been marginalised in appointments to government institutions such as the military and the civil service.
