Jonathan Promises To Open Up On His Experience As President At The Right Time

GEJPresident Goodluck Jonathan on Friday promised to shed light on his experience in office and other sundry issues and break his silence on his experience in office and other sundry issues at the appropriate time.

He, however, did not state when he would share his experience.

The president made the promise when State House correspondents approached him for interview at the end of the Good Friday Service organised by the Aso Villa Chapel.

Brimming with smile as he made his way from the chapel to his official residence, he said: “Don’t worry, I will talk to you at the appropriate time”.

Mr. Jonathan was accompanied to the about three-hour service that featured the Seven Words of Christ on the Cross by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State; and the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christians Pilgrims Commission, John-Kennedy Okpara.

Theme of the seven short exhortations that accompanied the seven lessons revolved around the sacrifice, the preachers said President Jonathan made to keep the county united.

They likened his decision to concede defeat in last Saturday’s presidential election and congratulate the President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), of the All Progressives Congress, to the sacrifice Jesus Christ made to save mankind.

All the preachers concurred that such bold step, taken by the president at the appropriate time, was commendable.

They, therefore, urged him to remain focused because his future is in the hands of God.

“This man (Jonathan) said here that he is the most criticized 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”, one of the clergymen, who led intercessory prayers, said.

The service also featured renditions of special hymns as well as intercessory prayers for the president, for peace and for the country at large.

Other notable personalities that attended the service include, the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission, Mrs. Joan Ayo; Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Ima Niboro; and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows Igali.

The First Lady, Dame Patience, and the president’s mother, Eunice, were conspicuously absent.
