Goodluck Jonathan narrated in this book how they mobilized their youths to stone him in NW & NE. He said the security agencies could have fired at them but he instructed them not to. He said Buhari went to his state “Bayelsa” to campaign but he did not return the favor.

Peter Ayodele Fayose on Twitter

To the man who saw the interest of Nigeria and its people as greater than his own, a man whose sweat watered the democracy that they are now trying to kill, a great patriot and democrat, Happy Birthday. Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, may the good Lord continue to strengthen you for us.

Adeyanju Deji 🇳🇬 on Twitter

Goodluck Jonathan said in his book that he had the powers to also attack Buhari and his convoy & campaign team in his state or Niger Delta but he did not. Even though, he was the president, he tolerated their terror. No aspiration is worth the blood of a Human Being.

Olayinka Samuel on Twitter

By publishing this book (#MyTransitionHours), you have done future generations and my generation a world of favor. You have followed in the tradition of US presidents and only a few African rulers who have penned down their presidential years for posterity.


Igala_King on Twitter

You have named this book #MyTransitionHours. I must say these weren’t just your transition hours. But there were your finest hours, Nigeria’s finest hours & Africa’s finest hours. Congratulations sir.” – @bukolasaraki speaking at the formal launch of GEJ’s book

3 and half years after GEJ left office he has released a Book called #MyTransitionHours 30 years after Buhari left office he never released any paperwork. The difference is clear, you can’t replace a professor with a cow herder…

I have come to launch a campaign of ideas not of calumny, I have come to preach love not hate.” – @GEJonathan in 2015. #MyTransitionHours


Mr Stanley Nwabia on Twitter

One of the hallmarks of Great Leaders is being able to document details of their stewardship in a book. GEJ has done it with #MyTransitionHours. This is Next Level greatness. Unlike one other Leader that left office in 1985 and 30yrs later could not write any book…till today.

Politics in general terms means to be inclined to particular side of an argument, choosing sides, being in support of a particular opinion and proudly so with reasons for such. In governance, politics largely means that you are for a particular party or political movement. You are for this because your party favours it; your party favours increased taxes, decentralization of power, increased minimum wage and the many issues that pitched parties differently. Politics in modern and advanced democracies should be about issues; the policies, ideas and governance. Any other thing can come in secondary but in developing democracies like in Africa and some parts of Asia and Southern America, one can find things that seem petty while the real issues are relegated.

In Nigeria where we are different in many ways or the dichotomies in our country are enormous; religion, sex, tribes (250 in number), language (over 400), rich and poor, political parties, ethnic nations, government and private, young and old and many others that people are nursing in their hearts. It is practically difficult to choose sides without betraying a camp you already are a part of. Let’s look at some of the issues that sentiments that have come up in the past are likely to keep happening.
