The inauguration of his presidential campaign organisation of President Goodluck Jonathan was on Monday postponed without any official reason.
The latest postponement was however attributed to the death of the President’s younger sister, Mrs. Nancy Jonathan-Olei.
Jonathan-Olei died in the early hours of Sunday at a hospital in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State after a brief illness.
Most dignitaries and party chiefs billed to grace the inauguration scheduled for the Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja were already seated before the latest postponement was announced.
Guests were awaiting the arrival of the President for the event to kick off when his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Prof. Rufai Alkali, announced the postponement.
Alkali apologised to those present, saying the postponement was inevitable.
He said, “As you are all aware, His Excellency (the President) lost his sister, Mrs. Nancy Jonathan-Olei, yesterday (Sunday) in the morning.
“In view of this, he has decided to suspend this inauguration for today until tomorrow at 11am.
