Former President, Goodluck Jonathan must be prosecuted for corruption, says the Lagos state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria.
Speaking on Saturday at an interdenominational service in Lagos, the Chairman of Lagos CAN, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, commended the ongoing war against corruption in the country.
Bamgbola said the war must be all-encompassing while giving several instances where former Presidents have been successfully prosecuted and jailed.

  
“A former President of Peru (Alberto Fujimori) was jailed. Also, a popular prime minister of Israel (Ehud Olmert) was jailed. If a nation puts you in a position of trust and you betray that trust, you should go to jail no matter who you are. I have no sympathy for anybody. Just make sure you get it right, and we get the facts right as well.”

The calls for the inclusion of Goodluck Jonathan in the on going probe into cases of funds diversion, misappropriation and outright embezzlement during the last administration.
Jonathan has also been fingered by some of the major characters in the arms funds diversion probe, with the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, stating at some point in his trial, that all the transactions he made were authorised by the former President.

While lamenting the scourged of corruption in Nigeria, he encouraged President Muhammadu Buhari to go after looters and ‘put them where they belong, so that we may have peace in this nation.’
