Spokesman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bolaji Abdullahi, is prepared to release another book titled ‘On a Platter of Gold’, a book he composed on the administration of previous President Goodluck Jonathan, in October.
Abdullahi, who was a Minister in Jonathan’s legislature, portrayed the book as an elite record of the “making and the unmaking” of the previous Nigerian leader.
As indicated by him, the book uncovers the interests that surrounded the 2015 presidential election and its fallout.
“On a Platter of Gold is part history, part political chiller, which answers a large number of the frequently made inquiries about Jonathan’s inconceivable ascent to the most astounding political office in the land and his unprecedented electoral defeat in 2015,” Abdullahi said in a press release.
“The book, which has the subtitle, ‘How Jonathan Won and Lost Nigeria’, is presented as takes after:
“Was Goodluck Jonathan powerless and confused, as his traducers have claimed? Or, on the other hand – as his supporters have claimed – would he say he was only a victim of horrible connivances by an entitled scheme that would remain determined to cut down this “intruder” to control?
“From an unknown college teacher, Goodluck Jonathan rose to end up President of Africa’s biggest democracy, in under 10 years – most amazingly, without winning a solitary vote in his name. In challenging the 2011 presidential election, he announced that growing up as the child of a fisherman in the streams of Nigeria’s Niger Delta, he had no shoes. This message reverberated with a great many Nigerians. “In the event that I can make it, at that point you can too,” he had announced. He went ahead to win with the most noteworthy dominant part vote at any point recorded in the country’s history.”
Inquired as to why he composed the book, Abdullahi stated: “I trust that writers who wind up in government owe it as an obligation to the calling to recount a decent story a while later.”
