NEWS ALERT: I am NOT READY to speak on arms deal scandal, says Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan says the time is not yet appropriate for him to react to the allegations that his government abused funds meant for the procurement of arms.
The current administration has launched a probe, which led to the arrest of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA), and some officials of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
They were accused of diverting security funds for Jonathan’s reelection campaign and there have been pressure on the ex-president to speak out over this.
But in series of messages on his Twitter handle, Jonathan, who at the moment is in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is holding a press conference, said he would react to the issue when the time is ripe.
“My voice will certainly be heard at the appropriate time regarding the alleged arms funds mismanagement,” he tweeted.
“I would not want to interfere with the proceeding by the judicial system that my administration worked tirelessly to strengthen.
“My post presidential focus is advancing democracy and good governance in Africa. If we do not spend billions to educate Africa’s youths today, we will spend it fighting insecurity tomorrow.”

The tweets are most likely parts of his speech at the conference.
