National Peace Committee dismisses Allegation

The National Peace Committee has dismissed reports that it was lobbied by former President Goodluck Jonathan to stop President Muhammadu Buhari from probing his administration.

Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah, a member of the committee, dismissed the report while answering questions from journalists after the committee’s closed-door meeting with Buhari in Abuja.

According to him, though everybody is free to contact the committee to intervene in promoting peaceful coexistence in the society, the former president never talked to the committee for any form of intervention.

He said the committee had embarked on routine consultation with relevant stakeholders with a view to ensuring stability in the country, adding that the committee will continue to support and cooperate with government in its fight against corruption and injustice.

Some members of the peace committee at the meeting were the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar; Cardinal John Onaiyekan; and the President, Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor,
