On Tuesday,23rd of May 2016,a national daily broke the news that the former President,Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,has gone on exile and is presently in Cote d'Ivoire.
Dr Jonathan has denied that claim. He said;
" I am not on exile. I find it amusing that such a report made it to the pages of a respected national daily.I have been good friends with President Quattara and only stopped by to visit him. Nigeria enjoyed a very robust diplomatic relationship while I was President".
