In a series of Tweets obtained from his Twitter timeline, the former President hinted that his government actually bought weapons.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Alhaji Abdulahi Jalo earlier asked the former President to come and tell Nigerians all he knows about the $2.1b arms purchase scandal.
Dr Tony Aziegbemi recently, in an interview, explained why Goodluck Jonathan channelled his 2015 campaign funds through former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
