President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said in Abuja that his administration was not in a hurry to prosecute those suspected to have stolen from the public coffers until verifiable evidences were fully documented against them.

According to him, everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the law.

“Under military rule, people could be arrested and held on the basis of suspicion, but in a true democracy, anyone accused of an offence must be presumed innocent until pronounced guilty by a court of law,” he told a delegation from the Foursquare Gospel Church, at the Presidential Villa.

He congratulated the Foursquare Church in Nigeria on its 60th anniversary convention which was concluded on Sunday.

In his remarks, the General Overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church,  Rev Felix Meduoye, commended the Buhari administration for initiating a full scale war against corruption and insurgency in the land, pledging that the church will continue to pray for the peace and prosperity of Nigeria.
