The Lagos chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has called for the prosecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan for corruption.
According to the Chairman of the religious body, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan, is not too big to be jailed.
“What is wrong with it? 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.”
He applauded the ongoing war against corruption in the country, and lamented state of corruption in the country. Furthermore, he urged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to go after the looters and “put them where they belong, so that we may have peace in this nation.”
He spoke in Lagos on Saturday on the sideline of an interdenominational service.
