Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that he did not make any official comments on Niger Delta over agitations for Biafra.
Mr. Ikechukwu Eze, who is a media aid to Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday disowned an online publication that claimed that he spoke on the relationship between the South East and Niger Delta.
Previous reports had claimed that the former president spoke on the position of Niger Delta over agitations for Biafra in a speech he presented in Texas, United States.
The former president described the report as false, adding that he couldn’t have presented the purported speech because he neither traveled to the US nor sent anybody to represent him at the unnamed event.
Eze said it was the second time in three years that Jonathan would be issuing a disclaimer on the purported speech and blamed the development on the effort of some “unscrupulous people” to tarnish Jonathan’s image.
He said, “Our attention has been drawn to a fake story with the title, ‘Why Niger Deltans don’t want to be part of Biafra’ currently circulating online and purported to have been taken from a speech allegedly presented by former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan at an unnamed event in Texas, the United States.
“The story which is being recycled in some online platforms claimed that the former President allegedly spoke on the relationship between the people of the Niger Delta and southeast states while addressing the broader issue of agitation for Biafra.
“We thought we had finally dealt with the issue of this falsehood with our timely and well-publicized disclaimer, soon after the supposed speech first surfaced online in 2017. However, it beggars belief that the same jejune and disastrous effort at speech writing, hatched by some yet-to-be-identified shady character, is again being served to the social media public as a fresh dish.
He added, “We want to state, as we did in 2017, that there was no such event involving the former President and that Dr. Goodluck Jonathan will never present such a sloppy and hate-filled speech.
