Malabu Oil Deal: I didn't receive bribe from anybody - Jonathan

Malabu Oil Deal: I didn't receive bribe from anybody - Jonathan

At last, former Pres­ident Goodluck Jonathan on Tues­day gave clarifications on his stand as regarding the allegation that he received gratification to approve the Malabu Oil transac­tion, which he said has been raising dust since he left office.
Jonathan in a state­ment by his Media Aide, Ikechukwu Eze, in Abuja said he did not send busi­nessman, Abubakar Aliyu or any other person to re­ceive bribe on his behalf during or after the nego­tiation.
The former President also stated that during his tenure as President, he had no shady deal with some persons nor parties in the transaction at any time.
He described the fre­quent online reports re­garding Malabu Oil con­troversy as misleading, which according to him the facts can’t be estab­lished by its arrow head.
“There is no proof that former President Good­luck Jonathan received kickbacks in the $1.3bil­lion OPL 245 oil block deal involving oil giants ENI and Royal Dutch Shell.
“With regards to the publication, we wish to make it clear that for­mer President Jonathan was not accused, indicted or charged for corruptly collecting any monies as kickbacks or bribes from ENI by the Italian author­ities or any other law en­forcement body the world over.”
