I Planned To Hide For 12 Months After My Defeat — Jonathan

It's not easy pretending all is well, after such a defeat as an incumbent. Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has said the death of Hannah Awolowo, wife of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, forced him and his wife out of “hiding”, saying he had a plan to keep off public functions for at least 12 months.

Mr. Jonathan made the disclosure during condolence visit to the Ikenne home of the Awolowos, over the death of HID Awolowo.

“Within this period, myself and my wife have been hiding; we don’t even go out.
We thought we’ll be hiding for at least 12 months. But in this particular case, we cannot hide. So, we’ve come for the condolence and to encourage our brothers and sisters that we are together,” he said.

On the passing of Mrs. Awolowo, Mr. Jonathan said it was a great loss, but that he took solace in the fact that death is an inevitable end that would come when it would come.

“So, we know it would come for all of us one day and here we are today,” he said.

The former leader was accompanied by ex-Ogun Governor, Gbenga Daniel, and his political associates.
