President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday [April 3] he will break his silence on his experience in office and on other issues at the right time. He said this when State House correspondents approached him for an interview after the Good Friday service organised by the Aso Villa Chapel.
The president however, did not specify when the right time would be for him to talk. “Don’t worry, I will talk to you at the appropriate time”, Jonathan said before he headed for his official residence.
Preachers at the service dwelt on seven short exhortations and lessons about the sacrifice which, according to them, the president made for the unity of Nigeria. They said Jonathan’s concession of defeat to the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) was akin to the sacrifice Jesus Christ made to save humanity.
Commending the president for his action, which they described as a bold step, the clerics admonished him to stay focused, saying his (Jonathan’s) future was in God’s hands.
One of the clerics said: “This man said here that he is the most criticised president and he prophesied that by the time he will be leaving, he will be the most celebrated president. That has come to pass with the way he is being celebrated worldwide for conceding defeat.”
