President Jonathan Responds to Obasanjo's Controversial Letter

The presidency has reacted to the letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Goodluck Jonathan accusing him of ineptitude and acts calculated at destroying Nigeria.

The presidency described the letter as reckless, baseless, unjustifiable and of containing “indecorous charges levied against him and his administration by the former Head of State.”

Read the statement by the president’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati,  below.

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

    The Presidency acknowledges that it has indeed received the said letter from Chief Obasanjo.

    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.
