I Am A Retired Politician–Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday told journalists that he is a retired politician.

Jonathan stated this after he emerged from a closed-door meeting with former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, at his uphill residence in Minna.

The former president arrived Minna in a bulletproof jeep, GMC Yukon, with registration number ABJ 961 ER, in a convoy of eight vehicles by road through Minna-Suleja road.

When he eventually emerged from the meeting and was asked the reason for his visit by journalists, he stated that he was around to see IBB who recently came back from a medical trip abroad.

When pressed further to disclose his mission, Jonathan changed the topic as he walked towards his car. “Let us encourage you [journalists] for what you are doing, thank you for what you are doing”.

Asked about what he would tell Nigerians, he said, “No no no; I came to see Babangida. Since he came back I have not come, though we spoke on phone. So I came to see him, not for any other reason”.

On what he thinks about the country’s political climate, he said, “We are retired politicians”, just as he entered into the already packed GMC Yukon car and drove off.
