Jonathan’s Ministers Send Warning Letter To Buhari
Some ministers who served under Goodluck Jonathan have warned President Muhammadu Buhari to give the former president his “due respect” henceforth.
The former ministers said they had observed that the Buhari administration and members of the APC had been condemning, ridiculing and undermining the efforts of the Jonathan administration.
Jonathan’s ministers said both the President and his party had also been rubbishing the integrity of some of the individuals who worked with Jonathan in his administration.
A former Minister of National Planning, Dr. Abubakar Suleiman, said this on Sunday in a statement on behalf of other ministers who served under Jonathan.
Suleiman said the efforts of the Buhari government had been to portray all members of the Jonathan administration “as corrupt and irresponsible, in an orchestrated and vicious trial by the media,” which he said had created “a lynch mentality that discredits our honest contributions to the growth and development of our beloved nation.”
He said while he and his colleagues believed that each administration had the right to chart its own path, the alleged vilification of the Jonathan administration was ill-intentioned.
But the Presidency, while reacting to the Jonathan’s minsters’ statement, on Sunday said Buhari’s war against corruption was not negotiable.
“President Buhari will not be deterred or blackmailed into retreat and surrender.”
