Former President Goodluck Jonathan has complained over the hijack of his new book titled, ‘My Transition Hours’, by pirates.
The former president said this as soft copies of the new book have been shared several times on social media.
But Punch reports that a scan through the book online, which is in Portable Document Format (PDF), shows that the book has been edited with some inaccurate information while some vital information contained in the real book have been expunged.
The virtual copy has 254 pages while the real book is 194 pages, even as some chapters are missing from the online version which Jonathan’s camp claim is fake.
Speaking on the development, Jonathan’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, urged members of the public to be wary of the misinformation contained in the online version of the book.
Eze, who said the book was being pirated by mischief makers, added that a statement would soon be issued to alert members of the public to the development.
Jonathan launched the book in a colourful ceremony in Abuja Tuesday to mark the occasion of his 61st birthday.
The former president blamed ex-US president Barack Obama for meddling in the 2015 presidential election that saw him ousted.
He also accused the north and opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) of politicising the Chibok Girls abduction and Boko Haram insurgency.
