President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday promised to speak on his experience while in office culminating in his acceptance of defeat at the recently held presidential election.
He told state House correspondents after Good Friday Service organised by the Aso Villa Chapel that it was not time for him to talk yet.
With a smile playing on his lips, the president was: “Don’t worry, I will talk to you at the appropriate time,” before leaving the chapel to his residence.
All the clergymen who spoke Friday emphasised the need for sacrifice, noting that the president’s decision to concede defeat was a sacrifice made to keep the county united while urging the president to remain focus because his future is in the hands of God.
“This man (Jonathan) said here that he is the most criticised President and he prophesied that by the time he will be leaving, he will be the most celebrated President. That has come to pass with the way he is being celebrated worldwide for conceding defeat,” one of the clergymen who led intercessory prayers said.
The service also featured renditions of special hymns as well as intercessory prayers for the President, for peace and for the country at large.
President Jonathan was accompanied to the service, which lasted for about three-hour and featured the Seven Words of Christ on the Cross, by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State; and the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christians Pilgrims Commission, Mr. John Kennedy-Okpara.
Others were the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission, Mrs. Joan Ayo; Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Ima Niboro; and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows Igali.
