Presidency Refutes Report That Jonathan Has Seen Yar’Adua
San Francisco March 01, (THEWILL) – The presidency has come out to refute reports in some news media that the Acting President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has seen Nigerian ailing President, Umaru Yar'Adua.
The Acting President's spokesman Ima Niboro in a short note to THEWILL said, "There is a story making rounds in the media that the Acting President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, met with President Yar'Adua this morning.
"This story is entirely false. The Acting President has not seen the President since his return from Saudi Arabia last week. This is for clarification please."
President Yar'Adua is presumably holed up in the mobile intensive care unit, the same one that purportedly transported him from the airport to the villa and has not been seen by any top government official including the Acting President since November 23, 2009.
The Acting President has made two attempts to see him as reported earlier by THEWILL. He however met with Hajiya Turai Yar'Adua last week at the President's official residence in the villa.
