“I remember the only corruption indictment against me was a white paper which was cooked up by our own administration over night to including the very EFCC that I helped found and other cabinet ministers, which I challenged in court.

“The court rightly dismissed all those indictments as being mere political; and till today nobody has ever indicted me of corruption.”

Speaking further, he dismissed allegations leveled against him by the Governor of Kaduna, el-Rufai’s in his book Accidental Public Servant.

He stated, “This is the same el-Rufai and others who incorporated Transcorp during my time as Vice President and offered me shares and I declined.

“I wrote to them officially to say it was unethical of me to have accepted those offers, so, where is the corruption toga coming from,” he said.
