I laugh when people call me clueless – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan says he laughs anytime people try to run down his administration as a clueless one .The former President said this in his recently published book titled , ‘ My Transition Hours ’ .

He said , “ Sometimes I laugh when certain propagandists attempt to stand logic on its head by maligning my administration as one bereft of ideas and clueless . In assessing my administration , it is best to focus on facts.

“ I cannot assess myself . I leave that to history and I make bold to say that never in the history of Nigeria till date has the nation had such a star- studded cabinet full of achievers and people who got to the top of their chosen fields by merit . ”

Jonathan said the only thing that saddened him was the hounding of his former ministers by the Muhammadu Buhari administration .

He , however , said he was happy that many of his ministers and former appointees had become leading world figures today like Adewunmi Adesina and Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala.

Jonathan added , “ Most painful has been the attacks on my ministers , aides , associates and even members of my family . There is an attempt to erase our legacy from history . The good thing is that the unending barrage of attacks , deliberate misinformation , and programmed media smear campaigns have failed to sway the opinions of those with the clear view of our beliefs , efforts , and achievements .
