President Goodluck Jonathan has urged President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari not to focus only on his administration when instituting probes.

Jonathan also said that it would amount to a witch-hunt if only his administration was probed.

The President made the statement during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) valedictory session which held today, May 27, 2015.

"Some people are even calling for the probe of the government, but I think in Nigeria, there are a lot of many things that will be probed, very many things, even debts owed by states and debts owed by this country from 1960 up to this time. They say it is Jonathan's administration that owes these debts,” Jonathan said.

"I believe that anybody that is coming for probe must also ensure that this probe is extended beyond the Jonathan administration. Otherwise, to me, it will be witch-hunt. If we are very sincere, it is not only the Jonathan administration that should be probed," he added.

Jonathan will hand over to Buhari on Friday, may 29.
