The Former President of Nigerian Hon. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has been caught between a hard rock and angry Nigerians following his stand on the current unrest in Israel and Palestine that has seen the world taking sides on either of the countries involved in the exchange of firearms.
According to the former Nigerian President, Jonathan, it is high time for the World Nations to stop championing for wars between Israel and Palestine, adding that, they should come together and end the current casualties in the aforementioned countries.
Jonathan says the war will stop if countries stop supporting both Israel and Palestine to continue with the fight, adding that the borders are constructed by humans, hinting out that divine instruction humans have is to embrace their neighbours as they do the same to themselves.
While speaking on AIT Online`s post, he noted that every International support should be directed towards de-escalating the conflict and not escalating it.
“I sue for peace in both Israel and Palestine, and urge that every international support should be towards de-escalating the conflict, rather than escalating it,” the Former President Jonathan said.
However, a section of Nigerians and other well-informed netizens noted that, Jonathan played a bigger part to bring Nigeria where it is, blasting him for allegedly disrupting the peace of Nigeria.
“I am surprise everyone is now speaking just after the meeting of the southern governors,” one Uriel M Afor responded.
“Mr. Jonathan, forget about Israel and Palestine. Let us talk about Nigeria and the Buhari you unleashed on us through your weakness. We want to know your stand on restructuring,” one Victor Okorie posed.
“Peace peace peace your peace brought us where we are in Nigeria,” one Samson Sunday John said.
