Jonathan: It Is Difficult To Find Loyal People After Leaving Power by SATANICALLY: 11:14am On Apr 07
Former President Goodluck Jonathan says it is difficult to find a loyal ally after leaving seat of power.

Mr Jonathan made this known in Bauchi, while inaugurating the 6.25Km Sabon Kaura-Jos by-pass road constructed by the Bauchi state government.

“There are people who act like they can’t eat without you when you’re in a position of power. But once you’re no longer in that position, they move on and act like you no longer exist.

“It is a very big day for me and you know why? Because it’s not easy for somebody to work with you in Nigeria then after leaving office, that person still continues with that kind of strong fraternal relationship with you.

“I have been in government for a reasonable time and I’ve served at quite a number of levels starting from deputy governor.

“Most of my experience is that after leaving office, some people just forget that you even exist.

“However, Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi is a good brother and I’m quite pleased that he invited me to commission the first major project that he has completed, that’s a big honour,” he said.

He appreciated the people of Bauchi state for voting Mohammed as their governor and commended his good strides and total commitment in changing the face of the state.

Earlier, Mr Mohammed said that the project was among the first set of legacy projects embarked upon within his first 100 days in office.

He aid that the project was awarded to an indigenous company, Habib Engineering Limited at the cost of N2.2billion and was completed within six months.

“We embraced good governance as a deliberate policy for the development of the state and in order to create the desired positive impact on the lives of the people of Bauchi state.

“Your excellency, you know very well, I did not know this culture, you taught me how to do this in your cabinet,” he said.

Mr Mohammed, who revealed that the state government had constructed over 100kms of both urban and district roads across the Geo-political spread of the state, named the commissioned road after the former President Jonathan.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the road we are about to commission today is an example of a road in need and a road indeed and I’m glad that no one else but you, your excellency, would perform the first commissioning ceremony since I assumed office as a governor.

“Furthermore sir, I humbly seek your kind consent to recognise your indelible contribution to the progress and development of our dear nation, Bauchi state and indeed myself, to name this very road after your good name as Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan drive,” he said.

Get a dog, if you want loyalty.


Humans and Loyalty are two parallel lines that can never meet.

I am not a fan of Reno Omokri but he has been more loyal to Goodluck Jonathan out of power than even in power to the extent that he named his daughter "Ebele" after Jonathan. #Super loyalist.

Poor naive Jonathan


Make your goodmind nor kill you sha


You still haven't learnt that all the Northerner Muslims including sambo and this Bala Mohamed spearheaded your exit in 2015


You still haven't learnt from his support of Banditry that they are all the same jihadists who only need your goodwill in commissioning project to paint the false hope of one Nigeria "

Even, PDP scammed Jonathan while in government..

He complained recently that PDP had neglected him..

I even doubt if Jonathan have a serious Ally, except the fake ones..

That is why Tinubu and Buhari is above every other politician in this Country.

You don't buy loyalty....but you earned it ...Why is Tinubu still relevant today?... Last time he held office was in 2007.



Even his enemies still call his name day and night as if he is the Lord and Savior.
