Dasuki couldn’t have stolen $2.2bn –says Ex-Pres.Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said the National Security Adviser during his administration, Sambo Dasuki could not have stolen $2.2 billion as claimed by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

The EFCC had arraigned Dasuki for allegedly misappropriating of $2.2 billion meant to purchase equipment for the Nigerian military.

But Jonathan while speaking at the famous Oxford Union, Oxford United Kingdom said it was not possible for Dasuki to steal such amount.

Jonathan said, “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?”

Jonathan however admitted there were corruption issues during his administration.

“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.
