It has been revealed that late President Umaru Musa Ya’Adua wanted James Ibori as his running mate in the 2007 presidential election instead of Goodluck Jonathan.
Ibori was then completing his second term as governor of Delta state, according to a new book, ‘On a Platter of Gold: How Jonathan Won and Lost Nigeria’, written by Bolaji Abdullahi — who served as a minister under Jonathan from 2011-2014
The book will go on sale nationwide from November 30, 2017 after the launch.
Yar’Adua brought up Ibori’s name before the idea was shut down by then EFCC Chairman Nuhu Ribadu and ex President Olusegun Obasanjo.
