Kinsman of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and leader of All Progressives Congress, Bayelsa State, Mr. Godwin Sidi, has revealed that Jonathan conceded defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari to cover up his atrocities in office.

Sidi, who was the Interim Secretary of the defunct New PDP, berated those commending Jonathan for conceding, saying the former President had no other choice but to do so.

Speaking at a news conference in Yenagoa on Friday, Sidi also called on the Federal Government and the National Assembly to commence the probe of Jonathan over the whereabouts of the Chibok girls.
“Jonathan’s conceding defeat is a ploy to cover up political atrocities he committed while
in office,” he stated.
PUNCH also reports that Sidi accused the former President of taking the possession of property seized from a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieseigha. Alamieseigha was impeached in 2005 by the state House of Assembly and later convicted for money laundering, paving way for Jonathan to become the governor of the state.

His property, home and abroad, was confiscated and returned to the state by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. While as a President, Jonathan, who always refers to Alamieseigha as his benefactor, granted state pardon in controversial circumstances to his former boss.

But Godwin revealed that some of the property seized from the former governor were in the possession of the former President.

He claimed that Jonathan took possession of one of the seized buildings of Alamieseigha at Maitama, Abuja, and later handed it over to his political associate and friend, who is a monarch in Bayelsa. He also accused Jonathan of confiscating a 5-series bulletproof BMW car bought as a birthday gift for Alamieseigha by a friend.

Godwin, therefore, gave the former President 72 hours to return Alamieseigha’s property in his possession or face a lawsuit.

He further asked the National Assembly to compel Jonathan to give account of the whereabouts of the Chibok girls since he was the Chief Security Officer of the country when they were taken away by terrorists.

He said his group had concluded plans to drag the ex-President to the International Court of Justice over the Chibok girls.

Sidi, a former South-South Youth leader of the PDP asked the Code of Conduct Bureau to make Jonathan’s assets declaration public.

He alleged that the former President glorified in corruption and allowed graft to cripple the country. Sidi added:
 “Jonathan was instrumental to the removal of Alamieseigha and prior to his removal, I remembered vividly that a friend of Alamieseigha bought him 5-series BMW car salon. Jonathan took that vehicle to Aso Rock.
The vehicle is still in his possession. I want him to return that vehicle. Property, the one l know for now, there are other ones l am trying to investigate, of DSP in Maitama was given to Jonathan’s associate.
I am giving them 72 hours to return the house to DSP as we prepare our papers to approach the court. The National Assembly should invite the President to give account of the Chibok girls because he was the Chief Security Officer at the time the girls were kidnapped.
“We are going to file our case at the ICJ over the Chibok girls. I am calling on the Code of Conduct Bureau to make Jonathan’s asset declaration public.”
