Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has disclosed that his relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari remains cordial.
Jonathan, while speaking with State House Correspondents after a meeting with Buhari, said;
“You’ve been seeing me coming and you have been seeing us having friendly conversations. So, our relationship is okay.”
Jonathan expressed gratitude to Buhari for naming the largest station on the Warri-Itakpe railway route – the Agbor railway facility and station – after him.
He further disclosed that he had already written a letter of appreciation to President Buhari, praised and commended him for carrying on with the railway programme and other legacy projects inherited from previous administrations.
“Let me use this opportunity to commend Mr. President publicly for naming that legacy project after me. I’ve already sent a letter of appreciation. It’s a good gesture.
“And completing the railway programme is good. It shows that the President is doing well; he’s going on with the legacy projects of the previous administrations. That is the way to go.
“I sent a letter to him. I commended him verbally too, but you are asking me now. Let me also do it publicly. I appreciate it, I thank Mr. President, the Minister of Transportation and others that made it possible.”
