Nnaji, speaking with newsmen in Lagos, said he resigned honorably from Jonathan's administration to protect his integrity.
His words: “If you want to defend your boss, defend your boss correctly with facts. Do not go to impugn people’s character in order to defend your boss. I have not made any statement against anybody and I know exactly what happened in that place.
“There have been numerous reports about what transpired and I was very clear that those who were vested in the sector were out to get what they wanted. And all of you can see it today.
“Some of them did get what they wanted and I didn’t want to be part of any of that. That is why I resigned. So, anybody saying anything else is trying to find a way to deflect issues and it shouldn’t be an innocent person – somebody who came to serve his country and everybody knows what I did and the quality of work I did in the sector.
“There is absolutely nothing like that. I resigned; I have a letter of resignation, which I tendered to the president and I issued a statement, stating why I was resigning; that I didn’t want my integrity to be tampered with. It was very clear; it is public knowledge; you people reported it,” Nnaji explained.
The former minister further stated that he still has a copy of his resignation letter and that the former president confirmed publicly that he did not commit any offence.
“It is actually quite funny. First, the presidential aide was not there when the president and I discussed my resignation and I have my letter of resignation and I resigned. The president and I discussed it, and I even issued a statement on why I resigned.
“But to make matters even much clearer, two days later, the president was directly asked what I did that I left the government, and he said, and I quote ‘Professor Nnaji committed no offence.’ It is there; all of you reported it. It is not from my mouth; it was from the president’s mouth,” Nnaji added.
