If not for God, I would have been buried politically- Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has stated that God prevented him from going into political dessert despite the corruption allegations levelled against him.

He made this known while speaking at a book presentation in Abuja on Tuesday.

In his remarks at the presentation of “Dear President Goodluck Jonathan”, a book written in his honour by Bonaventure Melah, a former managing editor of Daily Times, Jonathan said the wrong perception about him is gradually changing.

Jonathan stated that officials of the current administration tagged him and some members of his former cabinet as corrupt.

He, however, insisted that he does not hold any grudge against his detractors for their harsh criticisms.

“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).”
