Jonathan accepts Shagari’s son apology, Says; “I have no enemies to fight”


Former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has accepted the apology of Aminu Shagari, son of former President, Shehu Shagari, for working against him in 2015.

Aminu Shagari, a member of the House of Representatives, had apologised to Jonathan for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari to win the 2015 Presidential election.

Aminu said he apologised to Jonathan following what he described as Buhari’s inability to effectively tackle some of Nigeria’s challenges.

“Let me use this opportunity to tender a public apology to former President Jonathan and seek forgiveness because I helped to divide the Peoples Democratic Party and bring down his government, but, I have found out that what we thought about his stewardship was not entirely true.

“I expect President Buhari to also ask for forgiveness having found out that most of the things he accused my dad’s and President Jonathan’s administrations of are not true,” he said.

Reacting to Aminu’s apology on Monday on his verified Facebook page, Jonathan thanked him for the apology, saying he never took offence.
