I'll Speak on Tenure at the Right Time, Says Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday said he would remain silent on  the issues and activities surrounding his tenure as President until a time he considers right to open up to Nigerians.
Jonathan made the promise when State House correspondents approached him for interview at the end of the Good Friday Service organised by the Aso Villa Chapel.”Don’t worry, I will talk to you at the appropriate time,” the smiling President said as he left the chapel building.

The seven short exhortations that accompanied the seven lessons all centred on the sacrifice the preachers said Jonathan made to keep the county united.

They compared his decision to concede defeat in the last Saturday’s presidential elections and congratulate the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to the sacrifice Jesus Christ made to save mankind.

All the preachers commended the President for such a bold step.

They also advised him to remain focused  because his future is in the hands of God.”This man (Jonathan) said here that he is the most criticised President and he prophesied that by the time he will be leaving, he will be the most celebrated President. That has come to pass with the way he is being celebrated worldwide for conceding defeat,” one of the clergymen who led intercessory prayers said.

The service also featured rendition of special hymns as well as intercessory prayers for the President, for peace and for the country at large.

He was accompanied to the service that featured the Seven Words of Christ on the Cross by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State; and the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christians Pilgrims Commission, Mr. John Kennedy-Okpara.

Others were the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission, Mrs. Joan Ayo; Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Ima Niboro; and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows Igali.
