Jonathan Opens Up: I’m Being Investigated For Corruption By Buhari by TheFreeOne: 2:38pm On Jun 06, 2016
Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has disclosed today, June 6, that he is being investigated for corruption by the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government. Jonathan said this in an exclusive interview with Bloomberg Tv, in London.

“I cannot say the country from the beginning of our independence, that there was no corruption, yes there has been corruption. “I did very well also, to curtail corruption.

My approach to corruption, was ‘don’t make money available for anyone to touch. “We made sure that area of fertiliser subsidies was cleaned up,and the whole corruption there was removed.

“I tried to do the same in the oil industry, but the very people that were accusing us of corruption, were the same people frustrating it, its unfortunate
.

Asked if he was concerned that he would be investigated for corruption while in office, Jonathan said he is being investigated. “Obviously, I’m being investigated”.

Asked if he would be found guilty of corrupt practices, Jonathan said “I wouldn’t want to make certain comments because, when a government is working, its not proper for immediate past presidents to make certain statements.

“I will allow the government to do the work its supposed to do.

“I wouldn’t want to make serious comments on that, its not proper.

After all these investigations, the whole stories will be properly chronicled.

“I’ve just left office, and I should allow the President and his team to do what they believe is good for the country.

Jonathan’s aides have come under heavy scrutiny, since he left office, a situation he warned them of at the presidential dinner to mark the end of his tenure, on May 28, 2015.

Officials of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have also been arrested and arraigned for corruption, but the anti-corruption agencies are yet to make public their findings from investigation on Jonathan’s involvement.

Recently, former Principal Secretary to Jonathan, Hassan Tukur was reported to have disclosed certain acts of corruption that occurred during the regime to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, with the hope of getting leniency.

Oh! He conceded defeat cos he knew doing otherwise would land him straight in ICC jail. Stop praising him for saving himself of global shame. There's no big deal in what he did at all....is all for his own good cos we ain't in military era.

So...?
Re: Jonathan Opens Up: I’m Being Investigated For Corruption By Buhari by amjoseph19: 4:25pm On Jun 06, 2016
This man. With all due respect to my fellow nigerians, I keep saying that #GEJ was too good for us at this our democratic level. His policy was too refine for most of our liking. We wanted a talking drum rather than an action man.

Look at his speech, despite the allegations against him. He is very calm, well articulated and very ready to help his precise enemy for the good of the nation.

It is well known that buhari and his apc crew are fighting a personal battle against the opposition. Don't get me wrong, most of PDP members are thief. Infact they are fantastically corrupt... But, so are APC members. But why is it that it is only PDP members that DSS and EFCC are arresting? Even some of them are being arrested without any evidence.
the will arrest the person then go to the court and get a warrant to detain him before the start looking for evidence ala FFK.
We have learnt our lesson in a very hard way. Hat off to tinubu and his APC crew, their branding was great. superb political advertisers. Am not really angry with those that voted buhari. Their offer was tempting. You have to be very brilliant and intelligent before you could spot that it is all scam. But never again will such scam ever happen in our country.

Let's assume PMB wasn't able to do anything to improve Nigeria and by implication loses 2019 election and hands over peacefully, would he be given the 'Hero' status?I think it's a definite no but only time will tell

WOULD YOU HAVE CONCEDED?
GO ASK THE SIT TIGHT ONES WHY THEY DO SO.
SOME PEOPLE WHO CANNOT CONCEDE A LITTLE DISAGREEMENT WITH THEIR WIVES OR FIENDS WILL COME HERE AND BLAB.

WHY PMB NOT CONCEDE DEFEATS IN THE PAST? DON'T TELL ME HE DID. IF HE DID HE WOULD NOT HAVE GONE TO COURT.

APC will investigate and ask questions rightfully cause GEJ made running this country look like a piece of cake. No other President has so much evidence on the ground of development. On top of that trillions were in different accounts when APC took office. Still projects just to name a few

Dams built, refineries refurbished.
Mines explored gold and diamond market expanded.
Airports built and refurbished.
Schools built and expanded.
Federal roads refurbished.
Stock market modernized and developed.
Agriculture blows up featured on Forbes.
Businesses funded like Innosan and Coschairs agri
Trains put back in Nigeria
(mocked by APC now jocked by APC.)

The list goes on and his spending can be accounted for how about your Zoohari?

lol, na wao ooo, so you know there is enormous corruption in the system, yet you said how much person tif to be imprisoned, you dey try redefine our general perception of corruption by limiting it and not making it all inclusive.
I remember a clergy, I think Bishop Mike Okonkwo saying you are under a spell in office, guess you are just realizing it.
