|Send Jonathan To Prison If He’s Found Guilty – Nigerian Elder by IkUKU01(m): 2:35pm On Jan 26, 2016|
The Deputy National Leader of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr. Paul Unongo, has insisted that former President Goodluck Jonathan should be probed over the $2.1billionn arms deal.
Unongo, who was power and steel minister in the Second Republic, said Jonathan should be jailed if found to have corruptly enriched himself in the $2.1bn deal and refuses to refund his share of the loot.
Unongo, however, said the ex-President deserved consideration for conceding defeat in the last elections and by helping the country to avert an impending national crisis.
These two facts, according to him, should make his punishments mild if found guilty of stolen funds.
Unongo, who spoke with PUNCH on Monday, said, “There are three points to make on the arms probe. The first is that Jonathan deserves a special consideration for his contribution to democratic culture in Nigeria and for enabling us to avert a national crisis by conceding defeat during the general elections. He also mobilised support for the present government. Jonathan was great in defeat. He is a hero for doing this.
“Secondly, if the anti-graft agency can prove beyond reasonable doubt that he diverted public funds and if Jonathan agrees to return the stolen funds, he should not be humiliated but he should be given due consideration.
“Thirdly, if it is proved by a transparent process that he stole the country’s money and he refuses to return it, then the law should take its course, whether he is a former President or not. He should be prosecuted and jailed. This is important in order to serve as a deterrent to others.”
