Columns and Opinions across Nigerian Newspapers

President Jonathan Has Lost A Friend, - GEJ “I have been one of those who have defended Jonathan in some of the issues that he has been hacked by the so called opposition.” I was shocked when I saw the headlines in some newspapers on Wednesday that President Goodluck Jonathan has granted state pardon to Chief Deipreye Alamieyeseigha, a former governor of Bayelsa State who was convicted and jailed for corruption. It filtered in yesterday as a rumour and I prayed it would just fizzle out.
