Jonathan Reacts To Death Of Former Aide, Gulak

The former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, on Sunday said with the security challenges in the country, most Nigerians are traumatized by the happenings in the society.

Jonathan made this claim in Abuja when the management of the Albino Foundation and its partners visited to appreciate him for paying the bills of persons with albinism to undergo surgery for cancer abroad.

“Imagine starting your day with the news of killing in the morning, it leaves an impression on your mind. We need to also look into issues of mental health as well.”

The former President further stated that most of the crimes perpetrated in the country were drug-induced as “no sane Nigerian will just go and commit crimes except he is high on something.”

“Now we have cults in primary and secondary schools, then it was in tertiary institutions, but you now see children in these schools thinking of how to kill their mates, this is sad”.

He commended the Albino Foundation for its interventions in making life impactful for persons with disabilities.

In his statement, the Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Jake Epelle, in his statement, commended the former president for being the first president to have paid the medical bills of persons with albinism.

He presented an award to Jonathan for his worthy interventions for persons with disabilities.
