Malabu oil scam: Jonathan dares Lamido to prove his involvement
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has challenged Sule Lamido, former Jigawa State governor, to prove his role in Malabu oil deal.
It can be recall that in an interview with The Sun, Lamido declared that Jonathan compromised Bayelsa Governorship election to avoid being prosecuted by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari over Malabu oil scam.
However, in his response, the former president accused Lamido of spreading false information.
In a statement released by the spokesperson to Jonathan, Ikechukwu Eze, his behalf.
He said, “Our attention has been drawn to a Sunday Sun publication of October 25, 2019 in which Alhaji Sule Lamido claimed that former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan traded off the Bayelsa elections in order to escape being investigated over the controversial Malabu oil deal,” the statement read.
“We chose to make this clarification just to set the record straight, especially as a number of the former President’s close associates have been asking questions about the blatant statement credited to Mr. Lamido.”
