From JULIANA TAIWO-OBALONYE, Abuja
President Goodluck Jonathan’s call on Tuesday March 31st, at 5.15 pm, to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), winner of last Saturday’s presidential polls on the platform of the All Progress Congress (APC), that has been leaked to the public is being investigated.
A Presidency source who pleaded anonymity while confirming the probe, said the action has caused the seat of power serious embarrassment.
The source who was seen listening to the conversation again with some colleagues, said the probe is to ascertain whether the recording was leaked from the Presidency or was made public from Buhari’s camp.
The source further disclosed that should it be confirmed that it was leaked from the Presidency, those found culpable will face appropriate punishment.
“Definitely, unauthorised release of a raw recording of the President’s telephone conversation, if from our (Presidency’s) end is a security breach that cannot go without being investigated,” the source said.
Meanwhile, the first family have started moving their personal belongings out of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, following the failure of President Jonathan to win his re-election bid.
