“Buhari Is Investigating Me For Corruption” – Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan says his predecessor is probing him for alleged graft.
Jonathan, who is currently in London, made the comments during an interview with Bloomberg on Monday.
Jonathan was asked: “Are you worried that you would come under investigation for corruption?”
“No…of course obviously I would be investigated and I’m being investigated,” Jonathan replied.
When asked if Buhari and his anti-graft boys would find anything indicting, Jonathan hesitated and then said he wouldn’t want to make any comments at the moment.
“When a government is working, it’s not proper for the immediate past president to make certain statements,” Jonathan said.
“I will allow the government to do the work they are supposed to do. I wouldn’t want to make serious comments on that…definitely not…it’s not proper.
“After all the investigations, the whole story will be proper chronicled,” he said.

Jonathan recently met Buhari in Abuja. We don’t know what exactly they talked about.
Reports say Nigeria was “massively looted” under Jonathan whose national security adviser Sambo Dasuki is alleged to have misappropriated $2.1 billion.
The money was meant for Nigeria’s war on Boko Haram. Dasuki, who is being held by the Nigerian government reportedly said Jonathan ordered him to share the money.
…and that’s just a tip of the iceberg, reports say.
The government recently published a report on some public money looted under Jonathan’s watch.

During his administration, Jonathan angered many Nigerians when he declared “stealing is not corruption”. Buhari, on the campaign trail vowed to fight corruption to a standstill.
