“The President has nothing but the greatest respect for Chief ’s very notable contributions to national growth and many years and far from taking offence or seeking retaliation, will always welcome objective criticism and advice from the very highly-regarded elder statesman.”Abati said.

He added, “What is more, President Jonathan regards his Administration as a continuation of the unbroken chain of PDP-led governments started by Chief 1999 which have worked tirelessly to entrench governance and achieve rapid growth the country.

The president said “Rather than order a pointless probe of his predecessors, he will continue to do his utmost best to build on the solid foundations for national progress laid under previous PDP administrations.
