Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Alhaji Abdulahi Jalo has said that former President Goodluck Jonathan must speak on his involvement in the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal probe tagged Dasuki Gate.

Jalo, who spoke at the party’s national headquarters, said the former President should tell Nigerians and the international community his own side of the story.

Jalo said “As all of you know, no single kobo can be spent by the Federal Government without an act of the National Assembly.

“Money earmarked for arms purchase, some people diverted it to something else. So many people that you cannot even expect were involved. Now, darkness has come to light.

“Jonathan is alive, he should clarify whether he asked the National Security Adviser to divert money meant to fight Boko Haram into his campaign.

“I’m from the North-East and I know the terrible security situation our people are facing there.

“The money was meant to fight Boko Haram, and we all know that you can’t rule without peace. Now darkness has given way for the light.

“We are not fools. Money meant for the party’s campaign was given to the chairman of our party.

“We had a dinner, where billions of money was realised and this money was for the campaign. We said so and Nigerians were aware.

“We thank God that all those who took money used their private accounts and companies to get that. What has this got to do with the PDP?

“Haliru Bello did a contract with the office of Sambo Dasuki to the tune of N600m with his company’s name, not PDP.”
