Oct 25, 2016 – Jonathan Defends Dasuki, Says He Didn’t Steal $2.2Billion Under His Administration

Former President Jonathan has finally spoken in defense of former National Security Adviser, Dasuki who is being tried for stealing $2.2billion under the past administration.

Jonathan who spoke yesterday in Oxford said it is impossible for Dasuki to have stolen the huge amount because his administration bought several equipment for the military to fight Boko Haram.

His words:

The former National Security Adviser has been in EFCC detention since the 1st of December 2015 for misappropriating $2.2billion meant for the military equipment purchase under Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s administration.

He is set to return to court on the 16th of November 2016.

  1. Mr. Jonathan, if you really want to defend Dasuki, you have to come back home and head straight to EFCC and explain to them that you gave that man authorization to throw such huge amount of money away for your re-election without proper accountability while the rest of populace are starving to death.

    You are saying this because you are allowed to moving around without warrant of arrest placed upon you. You said you don’t want to criticize the current administration especially about how those Judges houses were invaded because the matter is in the court. Mr. Jonathan you are canvassing about due process, you are saying something about the rule of law and nothing has been done to corruption in Nigeria. That is why we have all these criminals getting away with their crime.

    According to vanguard report which I read sometimes ago, it is very unfortunate that we have some Billionaire Judges in Nigeria who make their money by perverting justice. Now tell me if Buhari never took an aggressive action that he took against those judges, the media will never know that the judiciary which is the last hope common people had been destroyed by corruption. If the judiciary is so corrupt then we are in serious trouble. Are you saying those Judges are above the law when our constitution says that everybody is equal under the law?.

    For those people who are saying all kind of nonsense that Buhari is a dictator, he should not have invaded the home of those Judges without special warrant, I think they don’t know what they were talking about. Some Nigerian lawyers have proven it that the sting operation of DSS was carried out in accordance with the Nigeria constitution. If this had not happened we will never know that Judiciary is so corrupt. Some of the Judges are now being co-operating with EFCC.

    If we want to fight corruption in this Country, we have to step on many toes and that has to begin with Judiciary. We just don’t fight corruption by mouth and expect changes. There are many times that NJC has failed to discipline the corrupt judges because they were part of them. DSS didn’t just invade their houses according to reliable reports, those arrested Judges have been trailed for sometimes under DSS radar and they were caught with the monetary evidences.

    Just as GEJ said that he was aware of corruption going on in Nigeria. Do you think without taking aggressive approach we are going to solve corruption problem in this Country hell no!. Now I’m glad that this is the beginning of sanitizing our judiciary system. Once that is fixed everything will fall in places.

  2. GEJ should allow the EFCC and the court to their job. Dasuki’s innocence or guiltiness will latter be made manifest at the end of the court final verdict on his case. So Jonathan’s interference and defensive speeches in favor of the ongoing trial of Dasuki will only raise more suspicions in his involvement in the arms deal scandal.

    Therefore,Your innocence maybe questioned if you are backing people whose cases are still in the court.

    So kindly respect yourself and stop publicly defending a man who is yet to account for the detailed on how those huge money was disbursed into several accounts of many political players with no meaningful explanations on how it was spent.

  3. This is total madness for GEJ to say Dasuki’s did not steal the $2.2B money, what about his own wife $15 million on different names, that is wife name’s did not appear at all but his wife can claim the money and the money belongs to her.
    Another total disgrace and humiliation if an ex-Nigeria President can out an address the whole world like that. GEJ government is as bad and corrupt like past Shagari NPN.
    Nigeria and all Nigerian need to wake up and know what to say and address the whole world for we are laughing stock for the whole world.

  4. Don’t just start writing rubbish and says you want to comment. Everybody has a freedom of speech. He has to defend his administration. You people should read his comment before you guys starts talking rubbish.

    Even if the EFCC or DSS call on him. He will honor their invitation and defend himself.

    Let the APC people stop giving our country a bad name all in the name of fighting corruption. How can somebody steal such amount?.

    Don’t worry, Time will tell and the truth shall be revealed.

  5. @DHAKA you are the one making senseless and unreasonable comment.

    Have you ever ask yourself what took Jonathan so long to speak up in Dasuki’s case? Haven’t you seen or heard of those who collected part of the money confessing already? And yet Jonathan is defending such criminal?

    The main point is,how can Jonathan be defending a man whose case is still in the court and that has a lot of questions surrounding him as regard to the arms deal scandal?

    Am not a pro Buhari neither am I a pro Jonathan but to be honest, Jonathan brought this embarrassment and shame to himself because of lack of accountability that characterised his administration! So be reasonable in your comment.
