Ex-President says: Goodluck Jonathan ‘I never contemplated going on exile

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has described media reports that he returned from
Cote d’Ivoire last Wednesday, where he had planned to go on self-exile for fear of being
arrested, as insensitive and tendentious. Jonathan said he returned from the London last
week having visited many countries including United States, United Kingdom, Senegal and Cote
d’Ivoire on a six-week long international engagements and speaking tour.
This was contained in a statement signed by the former president’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze.
The statement said: We are inclined to proclaim straightaway that this claim or any insinuation to Dr. Jonathan’s contemplation of exile is not only false, tendentious but inciting.
“We maintain as Dr. Jonathan has himself stated, that the former President has no intention of
turning his back on Nigeria, a homeland he served diligently as President, to the best of his abilities.
“It is instructive to note that while This Day continues to insist that Jonathan came from Cote
d’Ivoire, the former President actually returned to the country last Wednesday evening from London,
after visiting many countries including United States, United Kingdom, Senegal and Cote
d’Ivoire on a six-week long international engagements and speaking tour.”
