Dr. Jonathan, who has been dubbed by leading international organisations as the icon of Democracy in Africa and the continent’s foremost Statesman, had in his October 1 Independence Day Message posted on his Facebook page urged Nigerians to be patriotic and work on building Nigeria. The Independence Day message of Dr. Jonathan which in part read thus:

“I call on all my beloved countrymen and women to remain patriotic by praying for and supporting governments at all levels to build up Nigeria. Remember, do not think of who will make Nigeria great. Instead, think of how you will make Nigeria great. May God bless Nigeria and may God bless her people,” was personally signed with his trademark initials ‘GEJ’. Dr. Jonathan was received at the Port Harcourt International Airport by close family members and well wishers with whom he exchanged pleasantries and thereafter departed for Bayelsa State.

It can be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari has received criticisms from critics who consider claims by the EFCC to criminalise his wife, Mrs. Patience Jonathan as an attack on the rising International profile of Dr. Port Harcourt based Lawyer, Barrister Jonas Iniayemana recently called on the EFCC to comply with the provisions of the Constitution, extant laws including the EFCC establishment Act regarding procedures and respect for the human rights of Mrs. Patience Jonathan, considering the presumption of her innocence until proven guilt by a competent court of law. “the actions of the EFCC smacks of desperation, and a vindictive mission to malign and expose the Jonathans to public ridicule and anger by portraying them as scapegoats for Nigeria’s current economic crisis, which in reality is in credit to the incompetence and ineptitude of the Buhari led administration.” Iniayemana said.
