Obasanjo’s statement: Jonathan’s camp attacks Senator Ebute


George Turnah, a godson of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has lampooned former Senate President, Ameh Ebute, for his uncharitable comments against Dr. Jonathan.

Senator Ebute, while reacting to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s statement on Buhari’s administration, had carpeted the administration of Goodluck Jonathan.

In a letter by Turnah in reply to Senator Ebute, the ex-aide to former NDDC boss expressed concern that instead of the former Senate President to address Chief Obasanjo, he allegedly made unguarded statements against the administration of Dr. Jonathan, which he had commended back in 2013.

He recalled the former Senate President’s reply to former President Obasanjo’s letter to the then President Jonathan with the title ‘RE: BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE’.

“In that letter which you carefully drafted, you, Senator Ebute, stated that ‘the Jonathan administration is a pride to Nigeria and has positively impacted on the lives of Nigerians,” Turnah said.

Turnah cautioned Senator Ebute, “to tread carefully and act like an elder statesman.”

He added that, “it would have been honourable if the former Senate President had spoken out against the pogrom in Benue State, the poverty and failing systems in the country.”

Turnah wondered why the “former Senate President could not muster the courage to speak on the crisis confronting the country under the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government instead of dissipating energy on the past administration.”
