Bishop of the Diocese of Enugu Anglican Communion, Archbishop Emmanuel Chukwuma, has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to bring in former President Goodluck Jonathan, to explain what he knows about the alleged diversion of over $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase.
The former National Security Adviser (NSA) in the Jonathan administration, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd.), is currently being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for misappropriating the fund.
Speaking yesterday in Enugu with The AUTHORITY newspaper, the fiery cleric equally demanded the arrest and prosecution of incumbent Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, and his predecessor, now Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, over the arms deal scandal also known as Dasukigate.
According to him: “the issue of Dasukigate is what Mr. President should look properly into. It is a shame, absolutely condemnable and disgraceful to the leaders of this nation that money meant for arms to salvage this country from Boko Haram insurgents were diverted and that was why Boko Haram could not be tamed for a long time.
“It is a very disturbing situation and I insist that the federal government should invite former president Goodluck Jonathan who, I think, has a case to answer in that regard, because the money was alleged to be used for his campaign.
“Jonathan and the current CBN Governor should be able to tell Nigerians where the money was gotten from and why the money was diverted, if the allegations are true.
“Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, who was CBN Governor at the time the government was in power, should also be made to speak”.
