N1.3trn looted funds: Magu lied to Nigerians -Goodluck Jonathan condemns Magu

Jonathan described the allegation as diversionary and coming days after the United States released a report that massive corruption remains under the present government.

In his reaction to the allegation, Jonathan, through one of his spokespersons, Remo Omokri, said in a statement: “This is strange because Magu was expected to have used the forum to address the issues of impunity raised in the U.S. State Department report which directly indicted leaders of the anti-corruption crusade by emphatically noting, among other things, that ‘there is a climate of impunity in the President Muhammadu Buhari government that allows officials to engage in corrupt practices with a sense of exemption from punishment’.

“The claim of a stolen N1.3 trillion public fund which Magu reiterated on Monday is not new, for the discerning members of the public, the claim by Magu is rehash of false allegations that started its ill-fated journey in 2016.”
