December 23, 2013 – President Jonathan Replies Obasanjo’s Letter “Nigerians Know You Aided My Election”

After several days of silence, Goodluck Jonathan has finally summoned enough courage to pen a reply to Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter.

GEJ took his time to explain to the former President in details by addressing every question/allegations he raised in his letter titled “Before it is too late”.

Read the letter below:

December 20th 2013
His Excellency,
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR
Agbe L’Oba House, Quarry Road,
Ibara, Abeokuta.

 RE: BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

I wish to formally acknowledge your letter dated December 2, 2013 and other previous correspondence similar to it.

You will recall that all the letters were brought to me by hand. Although both of us discussed some of the issues in those letters, I had not, before now, seen the need for any formal reply since, to me, they contained advice from a former President to a serving President. Obviously, you felt differently because in your last letter, you complained about my not acknowledging or replying your previous letters.

It is with the greatest possible reluctance that I now write this reply. I am most uneasy about embarking on this unprecedented and unconventional form of open communication between me and a former leader of our country because I know that there are more acceptable and dignified means of doing so.

But I feel obliged to reply your letter for a number of reasons: one, you formally requested for a reply and not sending you one will be interpreted as ignoring a former President.

Secondly, Nigerians know the role you have played in my political life and given the unfortunate tone of your letter, clearly, the grapes have gone sour.  Therefore, my side of the story also needs to be told.

We must occupy Aso Rock come 2015 amd beyond whomever GOD has bless shall never be curse. So GEJ occupy till the coming of our Lord JESUS CHRIST.
