The presidency has said that the level and reach of the anti-corruption crusade so far reflected what the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had left behind for President Muhammadu Buhari’s present administration.

It added that President Buhari would not be deterred by baseless criticisms by the opposition in his determination to eradicate rampant, chronic corruption in the country.

Shehu, who was fielding questions from State House correspondents on issues raised by the PDP since the beginning of the suspended acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu’s interrogation, said corruption had become so normalised by the PDP that they had difficulty defining what is “corruption” and “theft”.

“They had large number of cases they did not investigate and prosecute. The current administration is handling many of the cases that the PDP should have dealt with and the new ones as they arise,” he said.

Shehu also cautioned the PDP to allow the process of investigation and prosecution to work instead of being preemptive about ongoing cases and unduly agitating the public.

He also expressed hope that the Judiciary would deal with the cases swiftly and satisfactorily, in a manner that would deter other would-be offenders.
