Former chairman of Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) presidential candidate in 2011 election and Adamawa State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015 general election, Malam Nuhu Ribadu said the immediate Nigeria president Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is not a corrupt person as everybody think, he says he’s the only president that a single act of corruption cannot be traced to him as an individual.
He further said that Jonathan is the only president in recent years who did not allocate a single oil bloc to anybody, not to talk of himself.
Ribadu who disclosed this in response to a question on why he believed in Goodluck Jonathan, during an interview with Premium Times, said,
“First of all I know him (Jonathan) fairly better than most people. Secondly, I also know a little bit more than many people in this country. Thirdly, I am an unrepentant advocate and believer in the unity of Nigeria. I respect people no matter where they come from.”
The former EFCC boss added saying,
“People say a lot about him (Jonathan) that is not true. For instance, I don’t think that a single act of corruption can be traced to him as an individual. I know that he is the only president in recent years who did not allocate a single oil bloc to anybody, not to talk of himself. And these are the areas where you can tell corruption in its true colour. He did not allocate oil bloc to himself, family or friends up till now. He also did not give a single marginal field to himself or anybody else even though he is the only president that comes from the Niger Deltawhere the oil is coming from.”
