Barely two months after former president Olusegun Obasanjo said in a letter that President Goodluck Jonathan promised to serve one term, he has restated that the president actually vowed to do so. Speaking to Bloomberg News, a London-based tabloid, yesterday, Obasanjo said during the 2011 electioneering, Jonathan promised to serve one term.

“President Jonathan said, not only once, twice, publicly, not only in Nigeria, outside Nigeria, that he would have one term, and said that to me,” Obasanjo said.

In the interview, Obasanjo challenged Jonathan to be a man of his words while reminding the president of the implication of not keeping vows.

“One of the things that is very important in the life of any man or any person, is that he should be a man or person of his word,” Obasanjo said, adding: “If you decide your word should not be taken seriously that’s entirely up to you.”
