Jonathan Returns after Six-week Foreign Trip


Former President Goodluck Jonathan wednesday returned to the country after a six-week trip to the United States and other western capitals on a speaking tour and holiday.

The former president, during his trip, had spent about two weeks in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

The former president, who landed at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Rivers State at 6 pm local time, was received on arrival by different groups led by the Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC).

During the former president’s absence, fears were raised that he had gone into exile for fear of arrest by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

But he debunked the news, saying he was out of the country to get some rest and would soon return. ​
