Jonathan had said, on Monday that Dasuki couldn’t have stolen $2.2billion as alleged by the Buhari administration.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged former president, Goodluck Jonathan to allow the courts decide the corruption case of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
Jonathan had said, on Monday, October 24, that Dasuki couldn’t have stolen $2.2billion as alleged by the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
“They said the National Security Adviser (Sambo Dasuki) stole $2.2bn. I don’t believe somebody can just steal $2.2bn,” Jonathan said while speaking at the Oxford Union in the United Kingdom.
‘‘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 $2.2bn (was stolen). So, where did we get the money to buy all those things?” he added.
The APC’s comments were made by Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank.
“First, I wonder why it took former President Jonathan such a long time to speak out. Why now? If Colonel Dasuki (retd) is as clean as he wants us to believe, it would be nice if he can assist his former NSA to prove his case in court. The courts deal with evidence; let them prove their case,” Frank said.
Meanwhile, APC Lagos spokesman, Joe Igbokwe has said that Jonathan is able to make such statements because people are pleading on his behalf to prevent him from being arrested.
