In a strongly worded statement issued by the President’s spokesman Dr Reuben Abati, President Jonathan was very furious that Obasanjo’s letter was “deliberately leaked to the mass media” and thus described such leakage as “deplorable effort” to impugn his integrity.

The statement said that President Jonathan “finds it highly unbecoming, mischievous and provocative that a letter written by a former Head of State and respected elder statesman to President Jonathan has been deliberately leaked to the mass media.”

It added that President Jonathan has directed that none of his aides or any government official should join issues with Obasanjo over the issues raised in the letter.

“The President himself will, at the appropriate time, offer a full personal response to the most reckless, baseless, unjustifiable and indecorous charges levied against him and his administration by the former Head of State.” the statement stated.

In the controversial letter, which the presidency confirmed it received, Chief Obasanjo accused President Jonathan of destroying the country through his bad leadership by condoning tribalism, corruption and providing presidential shield for “criminals” and corrupt politicians to evade justice.

  1. This can only become more interesting. What a show of shame by a former president and an incumbent president. Nigeria is at its lowest ebb right now. I guess we can’t go any lower than this. What a shame!

  2. What has Obj done for anyone to be unhappy?
    O, because he made this one ‘open’ after four unreplied letters?
    Our concern should be whether he is telling the truth. I have heard things like : why is Obj shouting? O, because Gej is an Ijaw man? Another said: tell me which Nigerian president is not corrupt!
    I have seen otherwise intelligent men give warped argument all because of their ethnicity. Gej has brought us this low. This nation is bleeding badly and broke! No amount of abuse from presidential aids will cover this monumental failure. Gej has led us into the pit.
