I fought corruption without making noise about it - Jonathan | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Former President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday, that his administration fought corruption in the country without making noise about it.



 Jonathan said this while speaking at the Oxford Union of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.

 The immediate past Nigerian leader spoke on the theme Promoting Youth Entrepreneurship. Responding to inquiries by some of the students regarding his administration’s fight against corruption, Mr. Jonathan said he would not like to “interfere with the legal processes” because “several matters are pending in court.”

Mr. Jonathan, however, said he did enough to reform anti-corruption agencies to enable them function effectively.

“We reformed the institutions and introduced various mechanisms to stop the corruption problems in our country without publicity,” he said, Using his Twitter handle, the former President paid glowing tributes to Nigerian youth and said: “Any nation that does not spend its wealth and resources to develop the capacity of its youth, will be forced to use them to fight insecurity.

“As a leader, you can decide through your policies to educate the youth, or face the consequences of failing to do so,” he said. He also said his administration put in place some youth related policies, which, he said, helped grow the Nigerian economy.

“Despite incredible challenges, Nigerian youths are achieving great things and placing Nigeria positively in the world map.

They inspire us,” he said. He also said his administration increased the allowances due to Youth Corps members by more than 100% in 2011. Mr. Jonathan added that the PDP administration that he led “identified Nollywood as a sector that can employ many young people and provided a grant of $200 million to boost the industry.”

  4. Enter your comment...Mr.Jonathan, I heard you say you fought corruption without making noise about it. where? In Nigeria or in the country where you are deceiving them there. Everybody knows that truly you fought corruption. Instead of you to bury your head in shame you are still talking. Under your watch all these billion of dollars were stolen and you said you fought corruption. I didn't believe those that say you are a drunkard but now I do. God will never allow Nigeria to have your type in the helm of her affairs again. Be deceiving yourself all around and thinking you are deceiving anybody. Clueless man indeed

  8. For a President who publicly told the world on National TV that stealing is not corruption, it leaves a sour taste in the mouth. The mess GEJ caused by institutionalizing corruption is still being cleaned up by the current government. Fought corruption silently indeed... He can tell that to the marines idiot.

    1. Obviously you are worse than a pig and a sheep combined. Your warped up brain will only process the truth only if they can show you the money recovered before you believe that they stole money not even when the accused person has publicly admitted stealing public money. I weep for Nigeria if you are some of the example of our youth today... Completely useless to themselves and country.

  15. The problem with our people is that they do eye service. Goodluck Jonathan, please keep mute. We are the 9nes that will assess you and not the other way round. If I were you, I will just keep quiet and enjoy all the enjoyable. The wounds are still fresh in our minds. Don't make us to change our minds. Your administration had enough find, yet no meaningful project could be boasted of in the South East. You awarded the contract for the rehabilitation of Enigu - Onitsha express way for about N29 Billion, yet you could not fund it and yet you are talking. Just keep mute so that you don't lose our support. Meanwhile, Buhari has funded the project and work is on going. Please Park Well.

  16. GEJ should not lie about fighting corruption cos he never did! Instead his govt. was the embodiment of corruption! A man that was controlled by his wife in taking certain decisions? How is that a leader! Please you have had your taste of leadership. Although you tried in some areas but don't tell us that you fought corruption!

  18. A man who said corruption is not stealing is now claiming to have fought corruption without making noise, even with his boys confessing and returning loots. Incompetent man that can not even control his wife excesses talk less of controlling his cabinet. You were in office but never in charge man. Remain silent.
