Jonathan Rise In Defence Of Dasuki, says Dasuki did not steal $2.2bn

In what is his first public statement of the travails of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, former President Goodluck Jonathan has defended him, saying it was not possible for him to have stolen $2.2billion funds meant for arms.
The former President stated this while answering questions after delivering a lecture at the Oxford Union, United Kingdom, asking where his administration got money to buy the military hardwares it bought if Dasuki stole the money.
Jonathan, said: “They said the National Security Adviser (Sambo Dasuki) stole $2.2billion. I don’t believe somebody can just steal $2.2 billion. We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army and so on and so forth and you are still saying 2.2 billion, so where did we get the money to buy all those things?
“Yes, there were some issues. Yes, there are still corruption issues but some of it were over blown. I’d say exaggerated and they give a very bad impression about our nation. You cannot say the national security adviser stole $2.2billion. It is not just possible.”
