Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, former President of Nigeria has recounted how close associates has deserted him soon after he left office.

He said that many of his associates while in office now acts as if he does not exist.

Jonathan disclosed this in Bauchi while inaugurating the 6.25Km Sabon Kaura-Jos bypass road constructed by the Bauchi state government.

He said, “I have been in government for a reasonable time, and I’ve served at quite many levels starting from deputy governor.

“Most of my experience is that after leaving office, some people just forget that you even exist.”

He added, “There are people who act like they can’t eat without you when you’re in a position of power. But once you’re no longer in that position, they move on and act like you no longer exist.

“It is a very big day for me, and you know why? Because it’s not easy for somebody to work with you in Nigeria, then after leaving office, that person continues with that kind of strong fraternal relationship with you.

“Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi is a good brother, and I’m quite pleased that he invited me to commission the first major project that he has completed; that’s a big honour.”
