Former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has revealed how most of his former close friends abandoned him after he left power; Highlighting how fickle some people’s loyalty can be.

According to the former president, there are people who act like they can’t eat without you when you’re in a position of power, but once you’re no longer in that position, they move on and act like you no longer exist.

He made these revelations whiles delivering a speech during the inaugurating the 6.25Km Sabon Kaura-Jos bypass road constructed by the Bauchi state government.

He commended Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, for standing by him even after he left office.

Goodluck Jonathan said:

It is not easy for somebody to work with you in Nigeria then, even after leaving office, that person still continues with that kind of strong relationship with you.

I have been in government for a reasonable time, I have attained a number of levels starting from deputy governor and most of our experience is that after leaving office, some of the people you think that if they don’t see you will not eat, will just forget that you even exist.

But this Senator Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State, is a good brother and he has invited me to inaugurate the first major project that he has completed. That is a big honour, and it is not the only inauguration, he even named the road after me as Goodluck Jonathan road.
