Former President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed his readiness to testify in court in favour of his former NSA, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
Lawyer to Dasuki in his ongoing trial, Mr Ahmed Raji (SAN) revealed this in a recent statement after Jonathan stoutly defended Dasuki in London, saying allegations about the $2.2 billion scam was faulty because his administration had purchased lots of weapons for the army from the said stolen funds.
According to Dasuki’s lawyer:
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.
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.
