BAUCHI ROAD INAUGURATION: AFTER LEAVING OFFICE, SOME PEOPLE JUST FORGET THAT YOU EVEN EXISTS – JONATHAN

Goodluck Jonathan, former president of Nigeria, says it is difficult to find a loyal person to work with after leaving power.

Speaking at the inauguration of the 6.25Km Sabon Kaura-Jos by-pass road constructed by the Bauchi state government, Jonathan said some people are only loyal when one is still in a position of power.

“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 exists.

He, however, described Bala Mohammed, governor of the state, as his good brother.

“Governor 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.

It was reported that Jonathan appreciated the people of Bauchi state for voting Mohammed as their governor and commended his good strides and commitment to changing the face of the state.
