OBJ’s Letter Provocative, says Jonathan



President Goodluck Jonathan replied last night ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s “invectives” on him in a personal letter on the state of the nation.
He said the letter was unpatriotic, self-serving and malicious.
He also said he would soon personally reply Obasanjo in full measure.
Jonathan, who made his position known in some tweets through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, however, asked his aides or government official not to respond to Obasanjo’s letter.
In what appeared like a jolt on the presidency, the tweets were incoherent, describing Obasanjo as a former Head of State, a title he used as a military despot between 1976 and 1979.
The tweets said: “President Jonathan has directed that none of his aides or any government official should join issues with Chief Obasanjo over it.
“Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Goodluck Jonathan is unbecoming, self-serving and highly provocative. The Presidency acknowledges that it has indeed received the said letter from Chief Obasanjo.
“We find it unbecoming that the letter has been leaked to the media in a deplorable effect to impugn the integrity of the President.
“While many patriotic, objective and well-meaning Nigerians have already condemned the leaked letter as self-serving, hypocritical, malicious.
“The President himself will, at the appropriate time, offer a full personal response to the most reckless, baseless, unjustifiable, and indecorous charges levied(sic) against him and his administration by the former Head of State.”
