Dasuki did not steal $2.2 billion – Jonathan

Yesterday, former Pres. Goodluck Jonathan said it was impossible for the National Security Adviser (NSA) during his administration, Sambo Dasuki, to have stolen $2.2 billion as claimed by the EFCC.

His words:

“They said the National Security Adviser stole $2.2bn.

I don’t believe somebody can just steal $2.2bn. 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, so where did we get the money to buy all those things?

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 $2.2bn. It is not just possible."
