Former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, is set to launch his own book titled ‘My Transition Hours.’
Legit.ng gathered that the book will be launched on Tuesday, November 20, in Abuja which will also be the 61st birthday of the ex-president.
Details from the invitations letters being sent to guests by the book presentation committee indicated that President Muhammadu Buhari, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, are among the dignitaries expected to grace the ceremony.
President Buhari will be the special guest of honour; Obasanjo will chair the event while Atiku has also been invited by Jonathan as a special guest.
Other dignitaries invited to participate in the official presentation are the former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Salihu Alfa Belgore, who will serve as the book reviewer; Gen. Theophilus Y. Danjuma (rtd), will play the role of chief book presenter while Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson, will be the chief host.
Many African heads of state, former leaders and numerous international personalities are also expected to grace the occasion, including President Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire and former Ghanaian President, John Dramani Mahama, who wrote the foreword of the book.
The Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfrad Achebe will be the royal father of the day.
Buhari, who recalled his political struggles since 2003 when he made his first attempt to clinch the presidential seat, lauded Jonathan for his action.
“I’ll continue to hold former president Jonathan in high esteem as a result of that singular act. He (Jonathan) was in power as deputy governor, governor (Bayelsa), vice-president and president, all for about 10 years and he voluntarily accepted defeat and surrendered power to me,’’ he said.
