My achievements yet to be matched – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has hit out at critics of his administration, saying his achievements in government are yet to be matched by his successor.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, on Friday, Mr. Jonathan said Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State’s claims that his administration was dogged by poor choices and bad governance were “parochial and jaundiced.”

The former president was responding to Mr. Shettima’s statement at the book launch of Bolaji Abdullahi, the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abuja on Thursday.

Mr. Jonathan challenged the governor to come clean over the roles he played in the kidnap of the Chibok school girls, stressing that it goes beyond the dismissive claim that ‘Jonathan thought I kidnapped Chibok girls.’

“He should be able to tell us if it was Jonathan’s poor choices that led the Governor to expose students of Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok to avoidable danger, in total disregard of a Federal Government directive to the governors in the three states most affected by Boko Haram to relocate their students writing the West African School Certificate Examinations to safe zones,” said Mr. Jonathan, who was president between 2010 and 2015.

The statement further described Mr. Abdullahi’s book titled ‘On a Platter of Gold- How Jonathan won and lost Nigeria” as sour grapes and full of lies and gossip written by someone who was still aggrieved at his removal as minister during the Jonathan administration.
