“I have no enemies to fight, because of my confidence that people can only do to me what God permits,” ex-President Goodluck Jonathan said.
The three-term House of Representatives member and lawyer son of the late President Shehu Shagari, had wrote to the former president for forgiveness.

Aminu said he helped to bring down Jonathan’s government to ensure Muhammadu Buhari emerged despite that as a military officer he led a coup that dethroned his father in 1983.

Jonathan in his reply to the apology, wrote, “Dear Honourable Aminu Shagari, Thank you for your apology. However, I never took offence. My firm belief is that I am a pencil in the Hand of God.
“Therefore, I have no enemies to fight, because of my confidence that people can only do to me what God permits.
“I urge you to continue to emulate the humility of your father, the late President Shehu Shagari, a most detribalised Nigerian. May God bless you. GEJ”.
