Former President Goodluck’s kinsman, Godwin Sidi, believes that he (Jonathan) conceded defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari to cover up his atrocities in office.
Sidi, who is the leader of All Progressives Congress, Bayelsa State, criticised those commending Jonathan for conceding defeat.
According to him, “Jonathan’s conceding defeat is a ploy to cover up political atrocities he committed while in office.”
Sidi made the assertions, while speaking at a news conference in Yenagoa on Friday, June 12.
He urged the Federal Government and the National Assembly to commence the probe of Jonathan over the whereabouts of the Chibok girls while also calling on the Code of Conduct Bureau to make Jonathan’s assets declaration public.
Sidi also accused Jonathan of taking possession of property seized from a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieseigha.
He claimed that Jonathan took possession of one of the seized buildings of Alamieseigha at Maitama, Abuja, and later gave it to his political associate, who is a monarch in Bayelsa, while he also claimed that he confiscated a 5-series bulletproof BMW car bought as a birthday gift for Alamieseigha by a friend.
Consequently, he gave the former President 72 hours to return Alamieseigha’s property in his possession or face a lawsuit.
“Jonathan was instrumental to the removal of Alamieseigha and prior to his removal, I remembered vividly that a friend of Alamieseigha bought him 5-series BMW car salon. Jonathan took that vehicle to Aso Rock.
“The vehicle is still in his possession. I want him to return that vehicle. Property, the one l know for now, there are other ones l am trying to investigate, of DSP in Maitama was given to Jonathan’s associate.
“I am giving them 72 hours to return the house to DSP as we prepare our papers to approach the court. The National Assembly should invite the President to give account of the Chibok girls because he was the Chief Security Officer at the time the girls were kidnapped.
“We are going to file our case at the ICJ over the Chibok girls. I am calling on the Code of Conduct Bureau to make Jonathan’s asset declaration public.”
