A former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, has responded to the allegation made against him by the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Farida Waziri, that he encouraged corruption to thrive when he was leading the country.

It was earlier reported that, Mrs. Waziri claimed that the former president dismissed her from her job at the EFCC because she refused to “back down from the probe of one of the masterminds of the fuel subsidy scam”.

The paper reported Mrs. Waziri as saying that she was happy that her removal then ”has now helped her not to be associated with the alleged grand corruption that took place under Jonathan’s administration”.
