Senator Ali Ndume (APC, Borno South) has spoken about his detention as he noted the value and landmark former president Goodluck Jonathan left behind in the country
The lawmaker spoke at the weekend during the grand opening of Dr PhysiQ Specialist Centre for Wellness and Medical Lifestyle Change, and launching of a book titled ‘Everything Heals’ authored by Dr Susana Adams, the CEO of the centre.
Ndume also stated that his recent detention at Kuje prison and subsequent release was the will of God, saying that “as God wants it, I must be here because I was just released from detention yesterday night (Friday). Maybe God wants me to attend this occasion, otherwise, I would have been in Kuje prison up till now.”
Jonathan, who was the chairman of the occasion, later inspected the new Wellness Centre. He was accompanied by a former Minister of Information, Labaran Maku and veteran journalist, Eugenia Abu, among other dignitaries.
Speaking before the inspection, the senator from Borno said other people that were sceptical about the ex-president’s behaviour have also realised how great he is, adding that many Nigerians don’t value what they have until they lose it.
Ndume’s remark was coming a few days after the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Mai Mala Buni, and some APC governors visited the ex-president.
Daily Trust had reported how the visit generated ripples between the ruling APC and the main opposition People’s Democratic Party.
