The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has disclosed that leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the cabinet members of the President were not being prosecuted for corruption because no evidence had been put forward indicting them.

Adesina made this known while featuring as a guest on a radio programme – Sweet F.M’s Podium – in Abeokuta, Ogun State, monitored by THEWILL, argued that the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war was not selective.

“The onus lies on he who alleges to also prove,” he said.

“The fact is that any PDP member who crosses to APC is not provided automatic shield. Whoever is indicted will be prosecuted.”

“The raid on judges was only a raid on corruption and not the judiciary.

“Mr. President has said it all. No one is out to intimidate the judiciary. The DSS raid was a raid on corruption not Judiciary.”

Adesina declared that the Federal Government did not ban the importation of rice clarifying that it only took steps to curtail the activities of smugglers at the nation’s land borders.

“Importation of rice via our sea borders remains legal,” he said.

“We have got to the point where we have to diversify or die. The Federal Government has disbursed money so as to heavily invest in agriculture and mining.

“Dr. Fayemi has told us that the results of the ongoing investment may not be clearly seen in less than 30 years. However, we will lay the foundation.
