I never used political power to punish people – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said he will never use political power to punish people.

Jonathan said he made the resolution before joining politics, NAN reports.

He spoke while delivering an address at the 50th birthday celebration of Apostle Charles Osazuwa, President of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly in Benin City, Edo State, on Sunday.

Jonathan stressed that people would always be remembered for legacies they left behind.

He said: “My belief, particularly when I joined politics, is not to use a temporary privilege, a temporary position God has given to me to punish people.

“Some of the things I did while in office to which people still make reference were based on the conviction not to use my position to cause the death of anybody.

“Any position I have occupied by divine providence should not be used to create hardship for other people.

“Just at 50 years, you have impacted significantly on many lives.”
