Former President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the report that claimed that lawyers for the Federal Government had, in a London court filing, accused him of accepting bribes in order “to broker a $1.3 billion oil deal eight years ago.”
While dismissing the report as a recycled falsehood that is blatantly dishonest, cheap, and predictable, he also said he had never opened an account outside Nigeria.
He also claimed that he does not own any property outside the country.

He stated this in a statement issued by his media adviser, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, on Saturday.

The former President was reacting to the alleged filling of a case by the Federal Government in London on the controversial Malabu oil deal.

He said there was nothing new to what he described as fabricated bribery claim which he said he had debunked in the past.

He said, “Former President Goodluck Jonathan did not ask for or collect any bribes, neither has he been charged for asking or collecting bribes, neither will he ever be charged with asking for or collecting bribes, because such never happened.

“That this particular dispute predated the Jonathan administration and survives it.
That former President Jonathan is 61 years old and throughout his life has never opened an account, nor owned property outside Nigeria.”
He challenged those behind “this latest propaganda” to make deposition (in court) on it.

Eze said the fact remained that as recent national events continued to vindicate Jonathan, and the world continued to celebrate him, those he said who were insecure would feed such propaganda to their media agents to feed their inferiority complex.

He added, “In fact, we expected something like this ever since it was announced that former President Jonathan would lead the Election Observation Mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa to South Africa’s national and provincial elections.

“We are well aware that this claim was intentioned to eclipse the goodwill and positive reports of former President Jonathan’s diligent engagement in South Africa’s national and provisional elections.

“The fact that most major media houses in the country refused to republish this falsehood bears out our conviction that Nigerians can no longer be deceived by hollow and diversionary claims of corruption, in the face of worsening state of affairs in the country.
