Dasukigate: Invite Jonathan, Emefiele For Questioning Now, Archbishop Chukwuma Tells Buhari

Bishop of Enugu-Emmanuel ChukwumaBishop 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”.
