Paden said President Buhari was more interested recovering stolen loots than sending officials of the past administration to jail.

According to Paden “As of the early months of 2016, it appeared that the EFCC was not going after Jonathan.

“Nor was it going after former president Obasanjo. The question of the stability of the entire political system seemed at stake.”

“Buhari had in his possession evidence of corruption against Jonathan.

“But his larger purpose was not to put former high-level officials in jail. Rather, it was to retrieve stolen funds and change the political culture of the country.”

Paden claimed former President Goodluck Jonathan shoveled funds from state coffers and plunged same into his re-ealction bid.

“The threat of postelection violence was palpable.

“There would be winners and losers, quite likely with a regional or ethno-religious profile.

“The international community was deeply concerned.

“High level diplomatic demarches were made to both candidates.

“A highly publicized ‘Peace Accord’ was signed by Jonathan and Buhari. But would they be able to control grassroots supporters.

“As March 28 approached, enormous sums of money were withdrawn from the treasury by the incumbents,” he said.

Meanwhile, Professor Paden also claimed that Goodluck Jonathan had written Buhari asking for “off-budget funds”.
