Information is gradually filtering out from the presidency on why the 36 governors dumped President Umaru YarÃdua for then Vice President Goodluck JonathanÂ to act as President.
A presidency source had told Saturday Vanguard that the governors finally got tired of theÂ Â lies strewn by the ailing Presidents kitchen cabinet. The source named the then attorney General and Minister of Justice, Michael Aondakaa as spokesman of the four-man cabinet cabal.
The National Assembly and Nigerians had, as stipulated by the constitution, been waiting for ailing president YarÃdua to transmit a written letter to the Senate on his medical trip to Saudi Arabia so that Jonathan could assume full presidential powers.
The governors were said to have been roused to action when they realized that all the government officials that were said to have been speaking to the bedridden President did not speak to him
The governors, who have interacted with YarÃdua saidÂ he is a blunt and forthright person, shorn of the shenanigans which his aides and kitchen cabinet had made of him.
The lying machine that was the kitchen cabinet had painted a picture that was not the president.
The governors realized that they were painting the President in bad light forcing them to conclude that something was wrong.
