Malam Nuhu Ribadu, the former EFCC chairman, and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Adamawa state during the 2015 general election, said that former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is the only president that a single act of corruption cannot be traced to him as an individual. He also 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: “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.”
