At a lecture in the Oxford University yesterday, President Goodluck Jonathan responded to a question on Dasuki he said does not believe that former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki can ‘steal’ $2.2 billion as he is being accused of by the EFFC. Dasuki was arrested last year and has been in detention since. He is to be re-arraigned in court on November 16th. Here is what he said below;
“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 he stole 2.2 billion, 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 over 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”.
Jonathan also stated that after he signed the anti-same sex marriage law in January 2014, no Nigerian has been discriminated.
