'Buhari has enough evidence to jail Jonathan'

11 October 2016, 15:51

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari’s biographer, Prof John Paden says there are facts in the hands the President, some of which can be used to put former President Goodluck Jonathan away.

According Paden, Buhari has incriminating evidence he can use to put his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan in jail for corruption but has chosen not to.

Paden, a professor of International Studies made the claim in his recently launched book, ‘Muhammadu Buhari: Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria’.

Naij reports that the author wrote that Buhari was more interested in the recovery of stolen loots than sending officials of the past administration to jail.

Paden in chapter 20, page 203 wrote: “As of the early months of 2016, it appeared that the EFCC was not going after Jonathan. Nor was it going after former President Obasanjo. The question of the stability of the entire political system seemed at stake.”

He alleged that Buhari had in his possession evidence of corruption against “Jonathan but his larger purpose was not to put former high-level officials in jail. Rather, it was to retrieve stolen funds and to change the political culture of the country.

In chapter 8, page 67 of the book, the author claimed that Jonathan withdrew “enormous” funds from the treasury as the March 28 Presidential election drew nearer.

News24 previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari was reportedly in possession of some handwritten letters by former President, Goodluck Jonathan which implicates him of corruption while serving as head of state.

According to reports, it is alleged that the letter includes a request by Jonathan for "off-budget funds" which would not form part of the Federal Government budget.
