“There is no need for forgiveness because you did not commit any sin against me” – Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday said he bore no grudge against those who criticised him while in office.

Writing on his Facebook Page, Mr. Jonathan said those apologising to him for criticising him during his tenure needed not do so because they only performed their civic duties at the time.

“There is no need for forgiveness because you did not commit any sin against me,” the former president said. “I never felt offended or held a grudge.”

Mr. Jonathan was reacting to a tweet by one Mohammad Deedee who asked the former president to forgive him for criticising him on November 20, 2014, when the Nigerian naira exchanged for 180 to a dollar and 280 to a pound.

“Today a dollar is N180 and a pound is N280. Hope you have a family… This is really the transformation agenda. GEJ has finished Nigeria,” Mr. Deedee, who tweets from the handle @deee009, posted at the time.

That post was an instant hit, getting 980 retweets, 159 replies and 150 likes.

But the dollar now exchanges for 498 naira at the open market with the pound sterling and the euro trading at N596 and N520 respectively.

Apparently irritated by this unprecedented declining fortune of the naira, Mr. Deedee posted a tweet on January 30 regretting his criticism of Mr. Jonathan at a time the naira was by far stronger.
