Jonathan Denies Owning £15m House In The Uk, Demands Retraction From UK Sun Newspaper

Former President Jonathan has responded to a UK Sun newspaper report claiming he recently bought a 12,000 square foot house in Surrey worth a between 10-15 million pounds.

The claim was made by a former editor of the paper, Kelvin MacKenzie, in his Weekly column this past Sunday.

Above is how he casually wrote it… which you can find here…

Reacting to the report, Jonathan denied owing the property and demanded a retraction and apology from the newspaper. Read his statement after the cut…

His media aide, Mr. Ikechukwu Eze, released the statement below…

“Nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Goodluck Jonathan takes pride in the fact that he does not have any property or accounts outside Nigeria. He stated this publicly while in office and his commitment to Nigeria’s economy remains total even after he left power.

As the Nigerian President who signed the Freedom of Information bill into law, Dr. Jonathan is well aware that the United Kingdom is a nation with good record keeping at county and national levels and as such, it will not take a serious and responsible media long to verify ownership of property before rushing to the press with potentially libellous publications.

It is hoped that this publication will correct its error and do a retraction and that other media will likewise follow up on this story to put the lie to the details it contains.
