The immediate past president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan says it is difficult to find a loyal associate after leaving a position of power.
Jonathan reveal this in Bauchi while inaugurating the 6.25Km Sabon Kaura-Jos by-pass road constructed by the Bauchi state government.

He said;
”There are people who act like they can’t eat without you when you’re in a position of power. But once you’re no longer in that position, they move on and act like you no longer exist.

”It is a very big day for me and you know why? Because it’s not easy for somebody to work with you in Nigeria then after leaving office, that person still continues with that kind of strong fraternal relationship with you.

”I have been in government for a reasonable time and I’ve served at quite a number of levels starting from deputy governor.

“Most of my experience is that after leaving office, some people just forget that you even exists.

”However, Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi is a good brother and I’m quite pleased that he invited me to commission the first major project that he has completed, that’s a big honour,”.

He appreciated the people of Bauchi state for voting Mohammed as their governor and commended his effort and total commitment in changing the face of the state.
