He was speaking at the 50th birthday celebration of Charles Osazuwa, president of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly, held in Benin, Edo state capital, on Sunday.

Jonathan, who led the country from 2010 to 2015, said when he joined politics, he decided not to use his position to punish people.

“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,” he said.
