Ex-President Jonathan discredits Adeniyi’s book on 2015 elections, says work full of distortions
By Femi Adeagbo
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has dismissed Segun Adeniyi’s new book ‘Against a Run of Play’ as full of distorted claims on the 2015 Presidential elections. He made this known on his Facebook post.
The book launched Friday in Lagos has been enjoying robust media reviews with most accounts focusing on the activities of the ex-President.
However in his first comments on the book Jonathan discredited the content of the book, stressing that he would provide an accurate account of what transpired during the elections at the appropriate time.
The ex-President said: “I have just read Segun Adeniyi’s new book, ‘Against the Run of Play’ which has so far enjoyed tremendous reviews in the media.
“My take on it is that the book as presented contains many distorted claims on the 2015 Presidential election by many of the respondents. There will obviously be more books like that on this subject by concerned Nigerians.
“However, I believe that at the right time, the main characters in the elections including myself will come out with a true account of what transpired either in major interviews or books.”
