Ex president, Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday, while speaking at the famous Oxford Union in the United Kingdom on the subject of promoting youth entrepreneurship, said it was impossible for Sambo Dasuki, the National Security Adviser (#NSA) during his administration, to steal $2.2 billion as claimed by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (#EFCC).
According to a report by Premium Times, Jonathan disclosed that it was �not just possible” for Dasuki to steal $2.2 billion after his administration procured several equipment for the country’s military.
�They said the National Security Adviser stole $2.2billion. I don’t believe somebody can just steal $2.2 billion. We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army and so on and so forth and you are still saying 2.2 billion, so where did we get the money to buy all those things?”
he asked while responding to a question about the alleged missing arms procurement fund now referred to a Dasukigate by the Nigerian media.
While admitting that corruption was an issue during his administration, the former president said that some of the allegations have been �exaggerated”.
�Yes, there were some issues; yes, there are still corruption issues; but some of it were blown, I’d say exaggerated, and they give a very bad impression about our nation. You cannot say the national security adviser stole $2.2billion. It is not just possible,” he said.
The immediate past president however, said that as some of the corruption cases are still in court, he would rather allow the legal processes to reveal the facts of the matter and that he doesn’t want to appear as challenging the incumbent government.
