Former president, Goodluck Jonathan made quite a number of revelations and strong statements during his speech yesterday at the Oxford union at Oxford University, london.
GEJ was speaking on promoting youth entrepreneurship and when asked about #dasukigate, he argued that it was impossible for the NSA to steal $2.2 billion.
In his words;
”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 however admitted there was corruption in his administration but it was largely exxagerated.
“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 then explained the reason for his silence on national issues;
“One thing about the issue of corruption is that these matter are in court, let’s allow some of these processes to end. Lately some judges’ (homes) were also invaded. There are so many things involved and we have to follow up these matters to conclusion before we know the fact.I don’t want to be seen as a former president challenging what the sitting government is doing so I have decided to keep quiet for the court to look into them,”
