Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said that his attention has been drawn to reports in the dailies, in which allegations of corruption have been against some top officials in the Presidency.
He asked the Justice Minister who is the Attorney General of the Federation, to initiate the prosecution of any of them found culpable.
Top officials who have been in the news in the past days, in connection with alleged corruption, include the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
For Lawal, he was accused by the Senate of being a director of a company, which benefited from a N233million contracted awarded by the presidential initiative for the North East region, on a project in Yobe state.
Also, Magu was indicted by the Department of Security Service in a report which the Senate depended upon to reject his nomination by Buhari as the substantive chairman of EFCC.
