Yesterday, a civil rights organisation, Vanguards of Nigeria’s Democracy, claimed that president Buhari is planning to malign and imprison former president Goodluck Jonathan on fabricated charges
“We, the members of the Vanguards of Nigeria’s Democracy, are aware of some clandestine moves made by the APC-led government to probe, investigate, malign and imprison ex President Jonathan. We are already aware of the trumped-up charges the APC government is leveling against a man who has diligently served the Nigerian state at the highest level of government."
“The APC led government should take notice that the appointments made so far are skewed in favour of the North, as no Ijaw man has been appointed. While an Ijaw President did not discriminate in appointment, President Buhari is implementing a Northern agenda through some of the appointments.” the leader of the group Osaghae Ogiemudia, said in a statement
The group also claimed that the ongoing controversy between former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole over Excess Crude Account and allegations that she spent billions of naira on his re-election, is part of what they want to use against GEJ.
Reacting, Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said it was 'mere speculation'
“All these are speculations and I cannot react to speculations because there is nothing concrete yet against the former President.”
