Buhari Government Not Interested In Naming, Shaming Boko Haram Sponsors – Femi Adesina



Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has said, his principal is not interested in making a public show of Boko Haram financiers and other sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.

According to him, Buhari’s regime does not have the motive of shaming the terrorists’ sponsors but will make them face charges.

While speaking on Channels TV programme on Monday, Adesina said, “Naming and shaming will not be the motive. Bringing malefactors to justice will be it. Nigeria is not interested in naming and shaming anybody. Rather, it wants to bring them to justice.”

Adesina added that, “rest assured that these people will be dragged before justice, and justice will have its way.”

He added that investigations were ongoing at various security agencies before arraigning the suspects.

“Investigations are going on at different levels; it will be at the level of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission; it will be at the level of the Nigerian Intelligence Agency. All the security agencies will be working on it so that when those people eventually appear in court, there will be a prima facie case against them,” the Presidential spokesperson said.

Recall that the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, also said he could not reveal the identities of Boko Haram sponsors.

Asked to name the financiers during an interview with Channels TV, Bawa said, “If you are my adviser, will you advise me to come on national television to tell the whole world regarding matters of sensitive national security issue? Certainly not.”
