• How Jonathan approved the disbursement
• How Jonathan & Dasuki denied been involved
As each day passes by, new facts continue to emerge against the former NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki, over the billions of dollars released for arms procurement during the Jonathan’s administration.
The former Adviser, who recently has been under intensive scrutiny by the anti-graft agency, is reported to have received extra-budgetary allocation of $2.1 billion from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) within the period of 9months after it was approved by the former President Jonathan.
According to The Cable news who got hold, the breakdown of NNPC disbursements to the office of the NSA, it claimed that $1b was disburse to the NSA office on the March, 27, 2014, $200 million on April 9, 2014; $600 million on May 5, 2014; and same day, $200 million following a request for $250 million. It was also revealed that on the 12th of January 2015, Dasuki got $100m which amounted to the whooping sum of $2.1 billion received from NNPC all approved by the former President Goodluck Jonathan with 9months.
It was further gathered that all the $2.1b received was outside the statutory budget allocation to security, including the $1b loan secured by Jonathan’s administration to fight Boko Haram.
Prior to this alleged evidence revealed by NNPC against Dasuki, he had denied his involvement in arm procurement deal and stealing from Nigeria’s fund. In same vain, former President Goodluck Jonathan washed his hands off the arm procurement charges against Dasuki claiming he never approved any of such amounts for arm procurement.
President Buhari recently ordered the arrest of Dasuki for awarding fake contracts in excess of N300 billion during the Jonathan’s administration when he was the National Security Adviser.
In regards to the alleged fake contracts awarded, it is however believed that the arms and ammunition were either not purchased at all or that substandard ones were procured instead, reportedly leading to the death of many Nigerian soldiers in the hands of the better-equipped Boko Haram insurgents.
With these new facts, it is evident that the former President and his boys had lied to the Nigerians and would need to face the consequences eventually.
