Jonathan In Debt Over 2015 Presidential Election, Former Ambassador Reveals
Former President Goodluck Jonathan is reportedly struggling to settle some of his 2015 election financial liabilities.
This was revealed on Sunday by Ex- Nigerian Ambassador to the Nordic countries of Sweden, Denmark,Finland and Norway, Ambassador Godknows Igali.
Igali, who was also a former Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Power, revealed that Jonathan was still struggling to pay borrowed money for the election.
He revealed that contrary to the pictures being painted of Jonathan, he is one of the poorest former Nigerian leaders, even in Africa, in recent years.
Igali, who made this startling revelation in an interactive session with some journalists on Sunday in Abuja, said that despite the allegations of corruption leveled against some of the officials and associates of Jonathan during his tenure as Nigeria’s president, he left his exalted position as a fulfilled man but insolvent, as compared to most of his retired predecessors
“Indeed Jonathan is still struggling to pay some election liabilities from 2015 till today.
“Despite all the stories of flying billions, Jonathan borrowed money to prosecute some aspects of his election and he is struggling in different ways to meet up.”
According to him, even with the corruption accusations against his regime, non of the corruption cases has so far been linked directly to the Jonathan.
"You must realize that none of those corruption allegations has been personally linked to him. Jonathan is not a rich man, take it from me. He may be comfortable but not rich. But l know that his pension as a former president is enough to take care of him.
"Thank God some of you guys know where he has an office and where he lives in Maitama, Which former president of Nigeria lives in that kind of place?
“President Jonathan’s parlour in his Maitama house cannot accommodate more than 10 persons. Look at his dining table, it is like any other house in Maitama. The only way you will know that a former president of this country is living there is the presence of security men which he is entitled to as a former president.”
