Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday returned to Nigeria after a month’s trip to the United Kingdom and Côte d’Ivoire.

Some Nigerians took to the social media, especially twitter to  react to his arrival. A hashtag  #GEJWhileYouWereAway has been created for his return to Nigeria.

It was gathered that the former President arrived at the Port Harcourt International Airport on Wednesday before heading for his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.

It was gathered that Jonathan arrived at Otuoke at 9pm.

A report by Thisday  newspaper had indicated that Jonathan had been given asylum in that Francophone country for fear of being arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission .

But on May 23 Jonathan had denied the report saying, “I’m not on exile. I have no cause to go on exile. It is a wicked and malicious report.”

  1. A clear conscience fears no accusation. Brig Tunde Idiagbon, the second in command to Gen Buhari in 1985 was in Saudi Arabia when Gen Babaginda overthrew them in a military coup. He had the option of remaining there but boldly returned to Nigeria to face any trial. That is how it should be if your conscience is clear. The wicked flee when no man pursueth but the righteous are bold as a lion.

  2. Seeing Jonathan alone, IS like seeing food and life.
