GOODLUCK JONATHAN, I Visit Buhari Mostly At Night

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on
Wednesday, August 3, said he has been visiting
President Muhammadu Buhari more frequently
than the public know.
Speaking to journalists at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, on
the purpose of his visit to the President, Jonathan said he
mostly visited Buhari at night as he has become a state
property.
“You asked why I came to see the president today; one key
thing is that having been a head of government, a former
president, you become a state property,” he said.
“That’s the privilege you have but every privilege has its
corresponding responsibility, and once you become a state
property, most of your international engagements that have to
do with public addresses and some international assignments,
they become national assignments; you brief the President.
“Even when I was here, the former presidents used to do that
and see me. I have been coming; most times I come in the
night; that’s why you don’t see me.
“I came to brief the president about some of my engagements.
As you are aware, I will leading the AU elections monitoring
team to Zambia, I came to brief the president about some of
these external engagements. It is the tradition," the former
president said.
On the Niger Delta crisis, Jonathan said to find lasting
solutions to the pipeline bombings, all the stakeholders in
the Ijaw ethnic nationality - traditional rulers, elders and
opinion leaders, must be involved.
“We have been in touch to see that peace reigns in the country;
those of you that have followed my talks when I was here, my
emphasis was always that we need a united Nigeria and I
always emphasise that Nigeria is great not just about the oil.
So many countries produce more oil than Nigeria but nobody
notices them.
“We are great because of our size, the human resources we
have, the diversity we have. If we fragmentise the country into
small components, we will be forgotten by the world. That has
been my focal position and without peace there cannot be
development anywhere in the world; we are all working
collectively to see that issues are resolved,” he said.
