Particularly considered offensive to the Ijaw, who are Jonathan’s kinsmen, is the use of quotations mark to describe their ethnic nationality by the former president in his controversial letter to Jonathan last week.

An Ijaw legal practitioner, Mr. Mela Ofoborika, told Vanguard in an interview last Sunday that natives of Ijaw ethnic nationality considered Obasanjo’s emphasis on Ijaw as a personal attack and a calculated attempt to disparage them before other Nigerians.
