APC Spokesman Bolaji Abdullahi unveils cover of new book on Goodluck Jonathan



This is the first look of the front cover of the much talked about book, On a Platter of Gold – How Jonathan Won and Lost Nigeria, by the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi.
The book generated huge attention last week when it was revealed that it would be released in October, prompting some commentators to conclude it would be an exposure of the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
Mallam Abdullahi served under the Jonathan administration for about three years and the expectation is that he would have inside details about the administration.

According to the press statement announcing the book last week: On a Platter of Gold is part history, part political thriller, which answers many of the often-asked questions about Jonathan’s incredible rise to the highest political office in the land and his unprecedented electoral defeat in 2015.’’
The title of the book has also led many to suggest that it would not be complimentary to the former President who fortuitously rose to power in 2010 after the death of President Umaru Yar' Adua. In reality however, the title of the book may have been inspired by the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan herself.
While clarifying her rift with former Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, in 2013, Mrs. Jonathan stated that the Jonathan presidency was an opportunity that fell to the South-South on a platter of gold.
“The presidency is an opportunity that fell unto us on a platter of gold. We shouldn’t throw it away. We have had people that contested from this region but didn’t win. We didn’t fight, we didn’t pay. God willed it to us so we shouldn’t use politics to fight one another or destroy our kingdom”, Mrs. Jonathan had declared.
