Yesterday, during a thanksgiving and farewell service at the Church of the Advent, Life Camp, Gwarimpa, Abuja; President Goodluck Jonathan shed some light on what he perceived might be the outcome of his exit from office come May 29.
Goodluck Jonathan said at the farewell service that there could be cases of persecution and ill-treatment seeing as he had made some ‘hard decisions’ during his administration.
He made it clear that such ‘hard decisions’ came at a price, and he is ready to face whatever outcomes his decisions could have.
Quoting Punch, the President held that: “I have run the government this way that stabilised certain things, the electoral process and other things that brought stability to this country. They are very costly decisions which I must be ready to pay for.”
“Some people come to me and say this or that person, is he not your friend that benefitted? Is it not your government that this person benefitted from? But this is what the person is saying.”
“But I used to say that worse statements will come. If you take certain decisions, you should know that those close to you will even abandon you at some point.”
“And I tell them that more of my so-called friends will disappear.”
