Jonathan Cries Foul In Sierra Leone
While a former Nigerian leader, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, is far away in Sierra Leone for the nation's democracy, it appears he has some issues to settle in Nigeria.
Dr. Jonathan on Sunday expressed shock that some persons were planning a campaign against him to tarnish his name and he is not happy about it.
On his Facebook page, he wrote: "It has been brought to my attention that while I am away promoting democracy in Sierra Leone, a campaign will be unleashed against me to falsely impugn my name using both faceless and identified persons".
The former President did not state what the issues were, but he reiterated one thing he had said while he was in office during campaigns around Nigeria prior to the general election of 2015.
"When I was in power I said my ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian. Even out of power, I continue to hold that belief.
"What I will say however, is that no matter how far and fast falsehood has traveled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth," he wrote.
This is coming days after news spread that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, had accused the administration of former President Jonathan of sharing 150 billion Naira two weeks to the 2015 polls.
Jonathan has denied that allegation.
