APC urges Jonathan to address Nigerians over South Africa arms seizure ‘embarrassments’

The All Progressives Congress has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to explain to Nigerians, the “serial embarrassments to which his administration is subjecting the country in the comity of nations”.

The party made the call in a statement today (October 7, 2014) by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed following the seizure of Nigeria’s $5.7m by South African authorities, which came shortly after the seizure of another $9.3m cash, which the Federal Government said was meant to buy arms to fight terrorism.

 

“Again, Mr. President, Nigerians are urging you to please come clean over these cash-for-arms scandals.

“Can your Administration’s embarrassing explanation that it is customary for other country’s security agencies, including with MOSSAD, KGB and CIA, to cart plane loads of cash across the world to purchase black market weapons hold any more water now?” APC queried.
