The politicians are said to be angry with the ex-president silence and have vowed to expose his deals should the anti-graft commission invite or probe them over corruption charges.

According to the report, a former minister, who was part of the campaign team, said, “Jonathan is beginning to annoy all of us because we are being dragged through the mud and he is keeping quiet. When we were given the monies, we were told that they were sourced from private individuals."

Continuing, ‘Now, the EFCC has stated that the money came from the account of the CBN and the EFCC has also provided evidence that the monies came from the CBN and the agency has told us to refund the monies. We have spent everything on campaigns.

‘We are being disgraced on the pages of newspapers and yet Jonathan is keeping quiet. I am not a military man like Sambo Dasuki. I cannot spend weeks in custody. If I am arrested, I will let the whole of Nigeria know that Jonathan was the one that gave me the funds. Let Jonathan return the money. I cannot pay for another person’s sins, the source divulged.
