Immediate past Nigerian President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan has denied allegations of withdrawing Billions of Naira from the Nations treasury while he was in office.
The former president stated this while speaking at a meeting organised by the Anglican Community in Abuja on Friday.
Jonathan who described the allegation has false and misleading expressed sadness at what he described as ‘low’, people who tell lies against others.
“I remember a particular incidence where somebody was talking about billions that were removed from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and I asked them, how many trucks were used to carry all these billions?
“In Nigeria, we get carried away by figures and it’s sad that we go too low to tell lies against people.”
Jonathan, therefore, called for more prayers over the spate of insecurity in the country and asked that more should be done to nip the crisis in the bud.
“As a nation, we have been passing through a lot of challenges; the issues of kidnapping, armed robbery, and even to travel to very near cities like Kaduna is becoming a nightmare to Nigerians.
“But I believe with your constant prayers, asking God to take the lead, the country will get through all its challenges.”
While insisting that the little success his administration recorded was as a result of prayers from Nigerians, Jonathan commended the Church for its persistent prayers for his government and the nation while he was in office.
“I have been running away from addresses so that people will not have so much to say or write about me. I have to thank the Primate, there were times I was not there and people concocted stories about me, but he used to challenge them.
