Conduct your presidential campaign with greater regard for the truth President Jonathan tells Buhari
Read the official press release below :
We have noted with disappointment and regret, the reckless, baseless and unsupportable charges made against the Jonathan Administration yesterday by a supposed elder statesman, General Muhammadu Buhari.
We wholly reject the allegations made by General Buhari against the Jonathan Administration at yesterday’s declaration of his intention to contest the 2015 presidential elections as an irresponsible denigration of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s sincere efforts, over the past four years, to positively transform Nigeria.
