Goodluck Jonathan, Former Nigerian President

Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the report that claimed that lawyers for the Federal Government had, in a London court filing, accused him of accepting bribes in order to broker a 1.3 billion dollars oil deal eight years ago.

While dismissing the report as a recycled falsehood that is blatantly dishonest, cheap, and predictable, he also said he had never opened an account outside Nigeria.

He stated this in a statement issued by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze.

The former President was reacting to the alleged filling of a case by the Federal Government in London on the controversial Malabu oil deal.

He said there was nothing new to what he described as fabricated bribery claim which he said he had debunked in the past.Eze said the fact remained that as recent national events continued to vindicate Jonathan, and the world continued to celebrate him, those he said who were insecure would feed such propaganda to their media agents to feed their inferiority complex.
