JonathanSpeaking through his Minister of National Planning, Dr. Abubakar Suleiman, in a text message sent to PUNCH Newspaper, Jonathan said Buhari, during the interview, lambasted his administration, stating that his (Jonathan’s) efforts were criminal and in nature and treasonable.

He said: “No responsible government would strategise to loose a war. President Jonathan sworn to defend Nigeria sovereignty and territorial integrity and he did everything possible to achieve that height in the fight against the insurgents.

“It is unfair therefore for Mr President to perceive such efforts by his predecessor as criminal and treasonable.

“The President should, in an attempt to build this country, make such pronouncements that would further unite us as a people than that those that would divide us. Posterity will judge everybody.”
