The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has disclosed that he has no comments on the decision of the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to withdraw the prosecution of Gombe Central Senator, Danjuma Goje, because he did not have details of the matter.
Sagay who spoke during an interview on Tuesday.
The senior advocate also said he would be displeased if it is established that the move has political undertones.
He said he could not speak on the matter as he was not furnished with the details leading to the withdrawal of the case.
Sagay said, “I’m not aware of the reason because my answer must depend on the reason. I’m going to find out. Let’s put it this way: if there is a good case against him, then it is withdrawn, it’s not justified.
“One really needs to know the reason; I don’t want to start condemning him without finding out why. But if there’s a good case and that case is withdrawn for political reasons, I cannot support it.
“That’s all I can say, but there may be a justifiable reason which I don’t know yet. So, I’m not going to condemn (the Federal Government) yet without enough knowledge of the circumstances.”
