Goodluck Jonathan, the Former President of Nigeria, has on Tuesday, suggested that he sacked Lieutenant-General Azubuike Ihejirika, who was the Chief of Army Staff because he (Ihejirika) was not doing the right thing.

The former President (Jonathan) said he was not under any pressure to sack him from office, adding that he cannot sack a person who is doing the right thing no matter the pressure.

Goodluck Jonathan said this during a book launch in his honour in FCT, Abuja on Tuesday, adding that some Nigerian thought he sacked the former Chief of Army Staff due to some pressure from the North.

“He mentioned my removing the Chief of Army Staff, General Ihejirika, and said that because there was so much pressure on me from the north, it was not pressured,” Jonathan said.

“If somebody is doing what is right, even if you want to hit my head and split my head, I will not (sack the person).”
