'Jonathan Testifying For Dasuki In Court Is Desirable'- Dasuki's Lawyer A. Raji


There are indications that the legal team of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki(retd.) are counting on former President Goodluck Jonathan to appear as a witness for Dasuki who is on trial for alleged mismanagement of $2.1billion arms funds. In a recent interview at the Oxford Union in the United Kingdom, recall Jonathan faulted the charges against Dasuki, claiming that the ex-NSA could not have stolen about $2.2billion votes for arms. According to Jonathan, “We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army."


This statement may have prompted Dasuki's counsel to call on Jonathan as a witness at the court. Speaking with THE NATION, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), the ex-NSA’s counsel, said: “It will be desirable for Jonathan to testify for the ex-NSA. It will throw greater light into grey areas. And it will serve the interest of justice.It will be fantastic for him to go to court to testify. Dasuki is an agent of a disclosed and known principal.


"But, frankly speaking, I pray for a political solution to the problem because of the characters involved. Both the accused and the government should embrace a political solution to the problem. I believe the President is very sincere. He wants to reorganise Nigeria and he deserves the support of all. With a political solution, Mr. President will be in good stead to overcome unnecessary distractions in order to succeed. I pray that everybody will key into his vision and the economic challenges facing the nation.”
