Jonathan accused me of being ‘Buhari boy’ — former AGF

A former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, has expressed his resent towards the former President Goodluck Jonathan and his deputy, Namadi Sambo decision to believe gossips that he was working for President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adoke, who was Jonathan’s AGF from 2010 t0 2015, made his position known in his book, “Burden of service -Reminiscences of Nigeria’s former Attorney-General,” due to be available for sale in Nigeria on Monday.

He said, “On May 12, 2015, we held the last National Security Council meeting under the Jonathan administration. After the meeting, the President asked me to see him in his office.

“There, he confronted me with the accusation that he was told I had prevailed on him to withdraw his assent to the amendments to the constitution because I was a ‘Buhari boy.’

“I found the allegation ridiculous. I was being accused of disloyalty by the very President to whom I had given my total and unalloyed loyalty! I was devastated and sad.”

He said he, however, assured the former President that he was not Buhari’s boy and that all that he did were done in his (Jonathan’s) best interest.
