Arms deal: Goodluck Jonathan ready to appear in court for Dasuki | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

All is now set for Nigeria’s former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, to appear in the ongoing trial of his former NSA, Col Dasuki, to testify in favour of the former NSA.

He had earlier faulted the charges slammed on Dasuki, claiming that the ex-NSA could not have stolen $2.2billion.

He was quoted to have said, “We bought warships, we bought aircraft, and we bought lots of weapons for the army. It’s not possible that he stole $2.1 billion.”

The ex-NSA’s counsel, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), said Tuesday that, “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan will testify in court. He is one of those who will testify and that the statement he made in London appears to be the first phase of the war chest of the ex-NSA.”

“You know the ex-NSA said he acted on Jonathan’s instructions in disbursing some of the cash, and from the look of things, the ex-President is now ready to accept responsibility for whatever Dasuki did. So far, we have secured the consent of Jonathan to appear in court for Dasuki. This will make the trial worth it.”

He also said, “Dasuki has a list of highly-placed beneficiaries from the arms cash. A particular traditional ruler got about N500million as a gift from the government through the Office of NSA. There are many hidden beneficiaries whom Nigerians must know.

Nigerians will be shocked by some revelations. Nothing short of open trial will let Nigerians know the truth. We are ready for this.”

  1. We Nigerians are ready too. Open trial please. Though I pity Jonathan for dragging himself systematically into this mess. He is saying it is not possible for Dasuki to steal such amount of money while you people are also confirming how the money was shared to some high chief. The drama is becoming sweet since Buhari himself is not a beneficiary.

    1. Dey bought car for Buhari from the money and he collected it... So what?
      The same way other beneficiaries didn't know the source of the money dey received from govt through Dansuki, it is the same way PMB didn't know the source of the money used in buying car given to him when his car was attacked through bomb. Probably, if some of them knew dat the money given to them was taken from the arms purchase budget, dey wouldn't ve collected.
