Former president, Goodluck Jonathan has dismissed allegations leveled against him by the former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido who claimed that Goodluck supported the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the just concluded Bayelsa gubernatorial election in order to avoid probing over his involvement in the Malabu oil deal.
According to a statement by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, the former governor, Lamido, was only peddling falsehood.
He said he does not really know why the former governor chose to speak as he did, especially with such hostility, contempt and lies against him,
The ex-president went further to claim that Lamido is not coherent even in his allegations.
According to the former president, “in one breathe, Lamido alleged that Jonathan worked against his party “because he was very, very angry with (Governor) Dickson,” in another, he claimed that it was “because he (Jonathan) sure knows his problem with Buhari and his government. And the issue of Malabu, I think, played a key role.”
Jonathan consequently dismissed Lamido’s allegations.
