The Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA) Resource Centre has threatened to sue President Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Government, shouls they fail to revive corruption charges against former Gombe State governor, Danjuma Goje or prepare for legal action.

According to them, the warning is for 14-days, after which they would head to court.

According to a statement issued by, Mr. Olanrewaju Suraju, Chairman of HEDA, “The action of the FG confirms the suspicion that Goje trial has been waved aside because of his decision to step as the Senate President for President Mohammadu Buhari’s prefered candidate, Senator Ahmed Lawan.

“This withdrawal has no justification except to confirm the rife speculations that the case was compromised to meet “political considerations” as in previous cases taken over by the AGF office.

“The AGF had set “bitter precedents” that the fight against corruption is selective depending on the political camp the suspected culprits belong.”

Suraju stated that HEDA would seek all legal means and inform international organizations of the subversion of rule of law going on in the Buhari’s administration.

“The withdrawal is in bad taste and this group will deploy all the constitutional legal means to defend public interest in this particular case”.

“The international community would be notified of this subversion of rule of law and justice by the present regime.

“Bilateral laws and agreement between Nigeria and other foreign nations will be explored to exposed both the government and the suspect. Constitutional provision on Nolle Prosequi is not to pervert justice but protect public interest”, said the organisation’s Chairman.
