Buhari ministers to sign pact against corruption

Owing to the level and manner in which public officials in the last administration, especially ministers and aides to the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan allegedly amassed wealth, President Muhammadu Buhari may ask his ministers, before they are appointed, and other aides to sign a pact that they would not corruptly enrich themselves while in office.
It was gathered on Friday that the president came to that conclusion when confronted with some documents that detailed how some former government officials amassed wealth with impunity.
When contacted on Friday on the matter, Adesina said that nothing was strange in Buhari giving terms and conditions to whoever he engages to work with him.
Adesina likened it to rules of engagement always handed down to whoever is engaged for an assignment.

He said, “It is only natural that if the President engages you to work with him, there will be terms and conditions. It is not strange. Don’t forget that we had a President in this country who compelled people to sign pre-dated resignation letters. I am not saying that this President is going to do that, but it means there can always be terms and conditions. These are just like rules of engagement.”
