Jonathan denies exile story


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has denied a report in a national newspaper yesterday (not The Guardian) that he had sought refuge in a West African country following reported move to probe his regime over alleged corrupt practices by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Speaking through his former aide, Reno Omokri, Jonathan assured Nigerians that he would return to the country after completing his multi-city speaking tour.

A national daily had reported that Jonathan had headed to Cote d’ Ivoire to evade investigation.

But Omokri in his twitter handle said he had spoken to the former president and confirmed that the story was not true.

He assured that Jonathan would return, adding that he is a man of peace “ whose future isn’t worth the blood of any Nigerian. He has no link to violence.”
