BREAKINGNEWS: Richest African Presidents : Publishers Remove Jonathan's Name. by fatdon2(m): 9:22pm On Oct 09, 2014
The publishers of RichestLifestyle.com
has removed the name of President
Goodluck Jonathan from the Richest
African Presidents 2014 list. President Jonathan was ranked sixth
richest African President with a net
worth of $100 million dollars. A claim
the President denied, threatening
legal action against the publishers. A
check on the website revealed that the article on President Jonathan has
been deleted. The publishers stated
of the removal of the article thus, ”
This article has been removed. The net
worth was evaluated by Celebrity Net
Worth”. The Presidency on Wednesday
condemned what it termed “the
totally unwarranted inclusion of
President Jonathan in the
publication”. In a statement, the Special Adviser to
the President on Media and Publicity,
Dr Reuben Abati said President
Jonathan has never been a
businessman and all his income since
1999 till date has been from the emoluments he earned from the
offices he has held. According to Dr Abati, the “the totally
unwarranted inclusion of President
Jonathan in the publication titled
“Africa’s Richest Presidents 2014″ is
another attempt to unjustifiably
portray the President as a corrupt leader and incite public disaffection
against him”. He said that “there has been no
significant variation in the totality of
his personal assets as contained in his
last declaration to the Nigerian Code
of Conduct Bureau in 2011 which, as
can be verified, was a very, very far cry from the $100 million figure now
being bandied about by Richest
Lifestyle.com and other irresponsible,
copy-cat publications”. The statement reads: “We have noted
with consternation the listing of
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan
by a website – RichestLifestyle.com –
as the sixth richest African President
with an estimated net worth of $100 million U.S. Dollars. “The Presidency condemns the totally
unwarranted inclusion of President
Jonathan in the publication titled
“Africa’s Richest Presidents 2014″ as
another attempt to unjustifiably
portray the President as a corrupt leader and incite public disaffection
against him. “We categorically assert that there is
no factual basis for ranking
President Jonathan as the sixth
richest African Head of State with a
net worth of about $100 million U.S.
Dollars. “As is well known, President Jonathan
has never been a businessman or
entrepreneur, but a life-long public
servant. The President has held public
office since 1999 and has regularly
declared his assets as required by Nigerian laws. He has had no personal
income since 1999 other than his
official remuneration as deputy
governor, governor, vice president,
acting president and president which
are matters of public record. “The clear and unacceptable
imputation of the claim that President
Jonathan is now worth about $100
million is that the President has
corruptly enriched himself while in
office which is certainly not the case. “We therefore demand a retraction
and an unreserved apology from
Richest Lifestyle.com and all those
who have reproduced the offensive
article. “Otherwise, they should be prepared
to substantiate their libelous claims
against the President in courts of law
within and outside Nigeria”. Publishers remove President Jonathan
From Riches African President List

They never added Jonathan's name in the first place. It is the APC e-dogs that added Jonathan's name to the list to imply that he was corrupt.
