Monday May 18, 2015 – Jonathan Begs Nigerians For Forgiveness For Making Wrong Decisions “Sorry I Have Hurt You”
Yesterday President Jonathan and his wife Dame Patience Jonathan did their final thanksgiving service at the Aso Rock Villa chapel in Abuja.
During his speech, Jonathan who appeared sober asked Nigerians for forgiveness for making wrong decisions that has directly or indirectly hurt them.
“Nothing is perfect; if you wait for perfection, you cannot achieve anything. No system is perfect. Every human system has an element of imperfection.
“So, for the eight years that I have been here as Vice-President, acting President and President, I can say that no one is perfect.
“We have done certain things that probably we shouldn’t have done, but we didn’t do them deliberately.
“So, for those that we offended, it was not deliberate; it was as a result of the exigencies of the office.
“We plead that such people should forgive us; I think we have done our best. You may do your own best and your friends and associates may misunderstand you.”
“The office is quite challenging; some of you may desire to see us but I believe that as we move forward, things will get better.”
