The coordinated attack on the integrity and credibility of former President Goodluck Jonathan is unfortunate. That the same hastily cooked up lies were reported simultaneously and almost word for word by some known client media of the powers that be is evidence of the fact that someone powerful is out to get the former President.
Let us even consider the report in itself. One of the conjectures used by the propagators of this lie to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians is contained in this quote “It has been known in government circles that Jonathan may be behind the NDA. The speed with which he denied the allegation spoke volumes.”
There has never been such a childish and amateurish justification for sullying the hard earned peaceful reputation of a man like former President Jonathan as this.
When in November of 2012 Boko Haram named Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), now the current President of Nigeria, as one of its chosen mediators did he not quickly and immediately deny and reject the nomination by Boko Haram?
Flowing from the same warped reasoning, his speedy denial is also evidence that he had a hand in the terrorism occasioned by the radical Islamic sect, but we know that is not true because Boko Haram tried to kill Mr. Buhari.
