“I am resting in Cote d’Ivoire not on exile” – Goodluck Jonathan


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has denied claims that he is presently on exile in West African country, Cote d’Ivoire in other to evade arrest from Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a chat with ThisDay Newspaper, the former president said he was only resting in the country. He also added that he will be returning to Nigeria soon.
He said:
“Yes I am in Cote d’Ivoire, I have been here for a week resting and this is my second trip to the country since I stepped down as president. I have made sacrifices for Nigeria. I am praised all over Africa for averting bloodshed and for the peaceful transition from one government to another, but it seems Nigeria does not appreciate my efforts. I have done my best for this country and if I have to die for it, I will do so. However, I am taking it easy here (Cote d’Ivoire) and when I am ready, I will come back,”
