Former President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday returned to the country after spending about four weeks abroad.

It was learnt that the ex-President flew into the country in the evening.

Spokesman for the Forum of Former Ministers, Prof. Abubakar Olanrewaju Sulaiman, confirmed the return of the former president at about 9.30pm.

Sulaiman said: “The former President is back. I have been able to confirm his return. He is in Bayelsa State as I speak with you.”

The ex-President’s trip generated concerns leading to speculations that he had gone on exile.

While away, his former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs, Dr Waripamowei Dudafa and cousin, Roberts Azibaola, were quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over N10billion and $40million allegedly withdrawn from government coffers.

The grilling of his aides fueled rumours that he had gone on self exile, as reported by a national daily.

But the ex-President penultimate Monday told THE NATION on telephone that he was not on exile.

He said: “I am not on exile. I have no cause to go on exile. I was Vice President for two years and President for six years. I did everything I could and I served my country well.”
