Goodluck Jonathan Absent at State House Thanksgiving

Former President Goodluck Jonathan was on Sunday conspicuously absent when former Nigerian leaders who are Christians gathered at the Aso Villa Chapel located inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja for the end of the year thanksgiving.

The past leaders were invited by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to join him and his wife to praise God for His goodness over the country.

Former Nigerian leaders who attended the service included a former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd.);  former President Olusegun Obasanjo; former Head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan; former Chief of General Staff, Gen. Oladipo Diya (retd.); former Vice-President Alex Ekwueme; and Rear Admiral Ebitu Ukiwe (retd.).

Osinbajo, in an interview with State House correspondents at the end of the service confirmed that Dr Jonathan was among those invited for the service. He, however, said Jonathan decided to cancel his attendance at the last minute.
