I hope my wife will not divorce me – GEJ

Speaking at the thanksgiving and farewell service organized for
him yesterday, Sunday, President Jonathan said he hopes his wife will not divorce
him just as the former South African leader, F.W de Klerk’s wife left
him when he chose to abolish minority rule in South Africa, a decision
he took for the greater good of South Africa. Pres. Jonathan was
speaking against the backdrop of his decision to concede defeat after
the presidential elections. He said such decisions come with its
consequences. He sympathized with his Minister and aides for the
persecution they will face as they also leave office come May 29th.

‘I believe there are reasons
for everything. Some hard decisions have their own cost. That I have ran
the government this way that stabilized certain things,  the electoral
process and other things that brought stability into this country. They
were very costly decisions which I must be ready to pay for. Some
people come to me and say this or that person is he not your friend
that benefited? Is it not your government that this person benefited
from? But this is what the person is saying. But I used to say worse
statements will come. If you take certain decisions, you should know
that those close to you will even abandon you at some point. And
I tell them that more of my so-called friends will disappear. When F.W
de Klerk took the decision to abolish minority rule in RSA, even his
wife divorced him. I hope my wife will not divorce me But that is the
only decision that has made RSA to still remain a global player time.
If we still had that minority rule there, by this time, nobody will be
talking about RSA. If you take certain decisions, it might be good for
the generality of the people but it might affect people differently. So
for ministers and aides who served with me, I sympathize with them,
they will be persecuted. And they must be ready for that persecution”
he said

He appreciated God for being with him and his family.

“Very few of those in my age
brackets have been that lucky. All through my education were on
government scholarships. I have not suffered lack not because I’m
hard-working but by God’s grace. When I look at the whole picture of my
life up to when I became the president of this country. And I say that
if  soldiers and police officers that have not received 0. 5 per cent
of the benefits that I have received  from the state can lay their
lives for  this country, I should  do anything in the interest of
Nigeria including paying the supreme price. As long as live, I will
continue to do my best for the state because the state has helped me as a
person. I have to thank Nigerians especially my state for giving me 
the opportunity to serve as deputy governor and the whole country gave
me the opportunity to serve as Vice President and then president, first
was to complete the tenure of the late president and later serve as
president from which I am exiting now as a very happy and fulfilled
