Following allegations against him, Goodluck Jonathan has replied Sule Lamido, ex-governor of Jigawa state, who claimed that the former president supported the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded Bayelsa gubernatorial election to escape from being probed over his involvement in the Malabu oil deal.
Jonathan in a statement by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, said the former governor of Jigawa was only peddling falsehood.
The former president said he really does not know why the former governor chose to speak like he did, especially with such hostility, contempt and lies against former President Jonathan.
Jonathan went further to claim that Lamido is not coherent even in his allegations.
According to the former president, “in one breathe, Lamido alleged that Jonathan worked against his party “because he was very, very angry with (Governor) Dickson,” in another he claimed that it was “because he (Jonathan) sure knows his problem with Buhari and his government. And the issue of Malabu, I think, played a key role.”
Jonathan consequently dismissed Lamido’s allegations.
