THE Presidency has replied former President Goodluck Jonathan over comment on the diversion of controversial $2.1 arms procurement fund.
The ex-president while delivering a lecture on Youth Entrepreneurship at the Oxford Union in the United Kingdom on Tuesday said it is not only inconceivable but also impossible that $2.1 billion was stolen meant for arms procurement to battle insurgents in the country’s northeast.
He reminded one and all that warships, fighter jets, and other assorted weapons were bought at the period under sad review.
But in a swift reaction, the Presidency on Tuesday through its spokesperson, Femi Adesina called on ex-president Jonathan to allow the courts to decide the matter because it is still under judicial consideration which under normal discussion would not be proper for public discussion elsewhere.
According to him, “The matter is sub judice. Let the courts decide”.
