Former President Goodluck Jonathan says the portable document format (PDF) circulating online of his recently launched book, ‘My Transition Hours’, is fake.
Jonathan said there is no provision for marketing a soft copy of the book.
He explained that while the original book has 194 pages, the e-version has 254 pages.

A statement released by Ikechukwu Eze, his spokesman, read: “We have just been informed that a fake document contrived by mischief makers is being passed on as the e-version and hard copy of the just launched ‘#MyTransitionHours’.
“We advise the general public to ignore such publication as the chapters and contents are not the same as the book publicly presented two days ago in Abuja. #MyTransitionHours.
“Also, note that the e-copy of #MyTransitionHours ’is not being marketed, as such, the fake online version could only have been created by those out to deceive the unsuspecting public.”
Meanwhile, Jonathan has tweeted that the e-copy of his book is the “work of mischievous persons”.
He wrote: “The alleged copy of my book, My Transition Hours, now circulating online is fake. It is the work of mischievous persons who have a wicked agenda. If you buy a copy of my book, you will note that it has only 194 pages, whereas this strange book has 254 pages. I am shocked at the extent people go to cause calumny.”
