The former EFCC chairman and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Adamawa state during the 2015 general election, Malam Nuhu Ribadu has revealed that Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is the only president that a single act of corruption cannot be traced to him as an individual and the only president in recent years who did not allocate a single oil bloc to anybody, not to talk of himself.
Ribadu disclosed this, while responding to a question on why he believed in Goodluck Jonathan,
“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.”he said
“People say a lot about 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 Delta where the oil is coming from.”
