Multi-Billionaire businessman, Arthur Eze has dismissed the controversy trailing the presidential pardon granted former governor of Bayelsa state, Dipreye Alamieyeseigha and others, saying it was God that directed president Jonathan to grant the pardon.
“What Jonathan did is what a man who fears God will do. If I have an opportunity as president of Nigeria I will do the same. All of us are human beings. What he did was correct.
"We are not fighting war. Jonathan took advice from God. God has told him to show mercy. The bible says blessed are those that are merciful for they shall see God,” he said.
Speaking with state House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Chief Eze said criticisms against the pardon was misplaced, and warned America from interfering with the issue.
On his donation of over N1billion to a church in the president’s Village, Chief Arthur Eze said critics of his cash donation are criticising God.
