The man in the eye of the over N337b storm, Sambo Dasuki, Nigeria's former National Security Adviser (NSA), has come out to tell his own side of the story.
‘Presidency is desperate,’ former NSA says
Dasuki also claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan approved all the arms purchases made during his tenure, adding that he followed due process.
He said the Presidency is acting out a script.
According to Daily Post, Dasuki said “While awaiting judicial process on these allegations, it is proper to make some references to show that the presidency was just desperate to hang some former public and military officers who served this nation at the risk of their lives.”
Adding that “There were no fictitious contracts; contract sums were not diverted and the relevant services in writing acknowledged delivery of equipment. For all procurements, the Nigerian Army, the Air Force and the Nigerian Navy have their contractors.”
He also claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan approved all the purchases made during his tenure, adding that he followed due process.
Dasuki took a swipe at President Buhari’s aide, Femi Adesina saying “The statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, who should know better as a former President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors and a witness to history, was nothing sort of propaganda to cast aspersions on Dasuki.”
Sambo Dasuki was allegedly implicated by a 13 man committee set up by President Buhari to investigate various arms purchase deals.
