In a diplomatic cable revealed by Wikileaks, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai said that Yar'Adua and Goodluck Jonathan emerged as President and Vice President because they were one of the few who could scale through the EFCC 'hurdle.' He mentioned that President Obasanjo selected Goodluck Jonathan because he met the two criteria he was looking for: 'honesty and Ijaw."

Contrary to his scathing criticisms, former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Mallam Nasir El-Rufai gave President Goodluck Jonathan a clean bill of health on financial accountability and transparency on the international front,a fresh report by Wikileaks has revealed.

In a United States diplomatic cable just made public by the whistle blowing organization, El-Rufai described President Jonathan as “ clean and honest”.

Details of the confidential cable with reference 07ABUJA77, show that the controversial politician gave the endorsement during an interactive session with the erstwhile American Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr John Campbell, in the build-up to the 2007 general elections.
