APC Spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, Unveils Cover Of New Book On Goodluck Jonathan (Pic)

This is the first look of the front cover of the much
talked about book, On a Platter of Gold – How
Jonathan Won and Lost Nigeria, by the National
Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress
(APC), Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi.

The book generated huge attention last week when it
was revealed that it would be released in October,
prompting some commentators to conclude it would
be an exposure of the Goodluck Jonathan
administration.

Mallam Abdullahi served under the Jonathan
administration for about three years and the
expectation is that he would have inside details about
the administration.

According to the press statement announcing the
book last week: On a Platter of Gold is part history,
part political thriller, which answers many of the
often-asked questions about Jonathan’s incredible
rise to the highest political office in the land and his
unprecedented electoral defeat in 2015.’’

The title of the book has also led many to suggest
that it would not be complimentary to the former
President who fortuitously rose to power in 2010
after the death of President Umaru Yar' Adua. In
reality however, the title of the book may have been
inspired by the former First Lady, Dame Patience
Jonathan herself.

While clarifying her rift with former Rivers State
Governor Rotimi Amaechi, in 2013, Mrs. Jonathan
stated that the Jonathan presidency was an
opportunity that fell to the South-South on a platter
of gold.

“The presidency is an opportunity that fell unto us on
a platter of gold. We shouldn’t throw it away. We have
had people that contested from this region but didn’t
win. We didn’t fight, we didn’t pay. God willed it to us
so we shouldn’t use politics to fight one another or
destroy our kingdom”, Mrs. Jonathan had declared.
