‘Obama made it clear he wanted me removed,’ Ex-president says


Jonathan said Obama relentlessly shaped the opinions of world leaders against him by accusing his administration of condoning corruption

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that the immediate past US president, Barack Obama, desperately wanted him removed from office.

Jonathan said Obama made it clear that the US wanted a change of government in Nigeria.

The Obama administration was unsatisfied with the way Jonathan handled the fight against corruption, Boko Haram insurgency and the rescue of the kidnapped Chibok school girls, it was learnt.

It is believed that it was based on these reasons that the US at the time placed an arms embargo on Nigeria.

Although the US cited gross abuse of human rights by the Nigerian army as the reason for its decision.

President Donald Trump has reportedly lifted the embargo, with plans underway for the US to sell fighter jets to Nigeria to further advance the anti-Boko Haram war.

In a new book written by Segun Adeniyi and titled ‘Against the Run of Play’, which chronicles how Jonathan lost the 2015 presidential election, the ex-president said Obama influenced UK and French leaders against him.

He said, “President Barack Obama and his officials made it clear to me by their actions that they wanted a change of government in Nigeria and were ready to do anything to achieve that purpose. They even brought some naval ships into the Gulf of Guinea in the days preceding the election.

“I got on very well with Prime Minister David Cameron but at some point, I noticed that the Americans were putting pressure on him and he had joined them against me.

“But I didn’t realise how far President Obama was prepared to go to remove me until France caved in to the pressure from America.”

He said Obama relentlessly shaped the opinions of world leaders against him by accusing his administration of condoning corruption.

“There was this blanket accusation that my body language was supporting corruption, a line invented by the opposition but which the media and civil society bought into and helped project to the world. That was the same thing I kept hearing from the Americans without specific allegations,” he added.

The Ice Massage

Ice massage is a common way that works to keep breasts perky and for sagging ones help to keep them back ‘up’. The cold temperature in the ice helps contract the tissue which makes the breasts appear firmer and more lifted.

How to:

Massage ice cubes short circular motions around each of the breasts for one minute

Dry the breasts with a soft towel and immediately wear a proper fitting bra

Recline in a position for about 30 minutes

Repeat this at regular intervals through the day

Note: Do not use ice on the boobs for more than 1 minute at a time as this can cause numbness!
