There are indications that President Muhammadu Buhari would make his ministers and key aides to sign a pact not to corruptly enrich themselves while in office.
It was learnt on Friday that Buhari came to that conclusion when confronted with some documents that detailed how some former government officials amassed wealth with impunity.
In furtherance of his anti- corruption stand, Buhari has disclosed that ministers won’t be having the luxury of awarding contracts or getting corrupt in how contracts are awarded.
When contacted on the matter, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said 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.”
