His response, it was gathered, embarrassed the cabal members who described the former President as a traitor.
 
“They are now accusing Jonathan of not fulfilling some of his promises after all the several meetings and soft-landing given to him.
 
“He was to come on board by converting some PDP states in the South-South and South-East to APC, and that way he would get the automatic ticket uncontested. Some other conditions were also given to him.

“But guess what? He told them he won’t contest again. They are now angry, saying he was deceitful. They said after getting some of his seized monies back, his wife’s monies returned to him, he finally decided not to contest,” the source told SaharaReporters on Thursday.
