Jonathan back in Nigeria
Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday returned to Nigeria after a month’s trip to the United Kingdom and Côte d’Ivoire.
It was gathered that the former President arrived at the Port Harcourt International Airport on Wednesday before heading for his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.
An associate of the former President, who pleaded anonymity, said, “I have spoken with the ex-President and he said that he returned to the country.”It was gathered that Jonathan arrived at Otuoke at 9pm.
Jonathan had on May 23 dismissed a report that he was on exile in Cote d’Ivoire.
A report by a national newspaper (not The PUNCH) had indicated that Jonathan had been given asylum in that Francophone country for fear of being arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission .
But on May 23 Jonathan had denied the report saying, “I’m not on exile. I have no cause to go on exile. It is a wicked and malicious report.”
