We performed well and were not corrupt, Jonathan’s ex-ministers tell Buhari.

The ministers who served in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan have defended their performance, saying they did well in office and were not corrupt.
The ex-ministers, Sunday, in a statement by Abubakar Suleiman, former Minister of National Planning, said "contrary to what the APC and its agents would rather have the public believe, the Jonathan administration did not encourage corruption, rather it fought corruption vigorously, within the context of the rule of law and due process."
They mentioned some of the anti-corruption successes of the Jonathan administration to include the stop in billions of naira stolen under the subsidised government fertiliser scheme, the development of the Government Integrated Financial Management Platform, The Single Treasury Account (TSA), and the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Management Systems (IPPIS).
They said they were not afraid of being probed by the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari which has vowed to ensure that all monies stolen from public purse in the last administration are returned and persons found guilty brought to book.
"We encourage President Buhari to continue with the probes, but this must be in strict accordance with his oath of office to treat all Nigerians equally and with the fear of God," the former ministers said.
