2015 Election: Jonathan Was Afraid Buhari Would Jail Him – Obasanjo




By Ganiyat Ganiyu

Former President, Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has revealed that the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan was afraid that his successor, President Muhammadu Buhari, would send him to jail.

Obasanjo’s allegation was contained in a book written by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Segun Adeniyi.

In the book, Obasanjo said Jonathan who conceded defeat in 2015, was not really afraid of his life but what Buhari may likely do to him.

According to him, “I believe the President’s concern or fear is not about life after office per se, because he and I have had occasions to talk about this both seriously and jovially.

“I believe the President’s fear is particularly motivated by the person he sees as his likely successor, that is General Buhari.

“I believe the people would have been telling him that Buhari is a hard man; he would fight corruption and he (Jonathan) may end up in jail if not in the grave,” Obasanjo said.
