Obasanjo’s letter unbecoming, self-serving and highly provocative – President Jonathan

The Presidency has reacted to the letter written by ex President Olusegun Obasanjo accusing Jonathan of betraying the mandate of Nigerians who voted him to power, and had, instead, been pursuing selfish, personal and political interests based on the advice he received from unpatriotic aides.

The Presidency through Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President, said that the letter is unbecoming, mischievous and provocative.

The Presidency’s Statement read thus:

“We have noted the publication on several websites today of a letter recently written by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

“We however find it highly unbecoming, mischievous and provocative that a letter written by a former Head of State and respected elder statesman to President Jonathan has been deliberately leaked to the mass media in a deplorable effort to impugn the integrity of the President and denigrate his commitment to giving Nigeria the best possible leadership.

” While many patriotic, objective and well-meaning Nigerians have already condemned the leaked letter as self-serving, hypocritical, malicious, indecent, and very disrespectful of the highest office in the land, President Jonathan has directed that none of his aides or any government official should join issues with Chief Obasanjo over it.”

“The President himself will, at the appropriate time, offer a full personal response to the most reckless, baseless, unjustifiable and indecorous charges levied against him and his administration by the former Head of State.”

The Presidency also acknowledged it had received the said letter.
