The Presidency has described President Goodluck Jonathan as the most “unjustifiably maligned leader” in the country’s history.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, stated this in a statement on Thursday.
Okupe was responding to a lecture delivered by the Action Congress of Nigeria’s leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in London.
He said, “It is trite to observe that President Jonathan is perhaps the most unjustifiably maligned leader in the history of Nigeria with critics using their overriding influence on print and electronic media freely and in many cases unfairly to take potshots at him.
“It is common knowledge that no administration has been abused, lied against and harangued like the present administration under Jonathan.”
According to him, in spite of the abuse, the Jonathan administration has not carried out any reprisal against its critics.
