Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said God did not allow corruption allegations levelled against him to send him to political oblivion.
Jonathan stated this on Tuesday while speaking at a book presentation of “Dear President Goodluck Jonathan”, a book written in his honour by Bonaventure Melah, a former managing editor of Daily Times,
Recall that Jonathan who lost his re-election bid in 2015 had conceded defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari even before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) made a final pronouncement on the exercise.
Speaking at the presentation, Jonathan noted that members of his administration are still being tagged “corrupt people” by the Buhari government.
“That is the problem myself and some members of my cabinet are still suffering since the beginning this administration when we were all tagged corrupt people,” he said.
“But I thank God that people can come together to celebrate me today. It is God. Otherwise, I would have been completely buried (politically).”
