President Jonathan Has Directed That None Of His Aides Should Reply Obasanjo- Reuben Abati

We have noted the publication on several
websites today of a letter recently written by
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to President
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The Presidency
acknowledges that it has indeed received the
said letter from Chief Obasanjo.
We however find it highly unbecoming,
mischievous and provocative that a letter
written by a former Head of State and
respected elder statesman to President
Jonathan has been deliberately leaked to the
mass media in a deplorable effort to impugn
the integrity of the President and denigrate
his commitment to giving Nigeria the best
possible leadership.
While many patriotic, objective and well-
meaning Nigerians have already condemned the
leaked letter as self-serving, hypocritical,
malicious, indecent, and very disrespectful of
the highest office in the land, President
Jonathan has directed that none of his aides
or any government official should join issues
with Chief Obasanjo over it.
The President himself will, at the appropriate
time, offer a full personal response to the
most reckless, baseless, unjustifiable and
indecorous charges levied against him and his
administration by the former Head of State.
