Goodluck Jonathan Does Not Drink – Reuben Abati


Reuben Abati, former spokesperson
to former President Goodluck
Jonathan has clarified that against
the widely held belief that the
former leader was a drunk, he
actually does not drink.
Abati, who made the defence of his
former boss during a recent
interview with Rockcity 101.9 FM,
Abeokuta, Ogun State, said he only
saw Jonathan drink a glass of wine
during special occasions, explaining
that the former President was never
drunk during his time in office.
“President Jonathan does not drink.
You see, that’s one of the myths
about that administration and you
must understand how this thing is,
it’s all about perception,
communication, it’s all about what
goes out and it’s about stereotyping.
People just stereotype people from a
particular part of the country as
drunkards, and they look for
justification for one type of
behaviour or the other.
“But I can tell you that in my 4 years
of working for President Jonathan, I
never found him in a bibulous
If he ever tasted any drink, maybe a
glass of wine during special
occasions. All those stories about him
drinking, about President Jonathan
always being berated, about bibulous
situations inside the Villa, those
things did not exist.
“The people must find justifications
to say this is why we think this
situation is this way it is. I tell you
and Nigerians will remember that he
is a very humble man; he is a very
committed person to the Nigerian
If you look at the results of the
elections, you’ll see that he lost the
elections with about 2.5 million votes
or thereabout, which means that a
large number of Nigerians still
believed in him and also believed in
his ability and his capability of his
administration to move Nigeria
We were dealing with a democracy;
the people have a right to make a
choice, when the people make a
choice, we respect that choice.
“And our commitment as Nigerians,
whoever we may be, whatever we
maybe our station, is to remain
committed to Nigeria, and to support
whoever has emerged and to respect
the choice and the decision of
“This is not about witch-hunt, it’s not
about criticizing people, the Nigerian
people have spoken and we stand by
the decision of the Nigerian people.
And we all support whoever is there
to move Nigeria forward. So this
backward looking, can we just look
forward? Can we all just work
together to move Nigeria forward?
For me, that is where the emphasis
should be, because we are all
Nigerians and at the end of the day
the country is more important than
all of us,” he said.
