Former President Dramani Mahama of Ghana; Yakubu Gowon, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalami Abubakar, former military heads of states, are among the expected guests.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and Namadi Sambo, Jonathan’s deputy between 2011 and 2015, will also grace the occasion.
A former minister of defence, Theophilus Danjuma, is the chief book presenter, while Salihu Alfa-Belgore, former chief justice of the federation, will review the book.
A sample of the invitation letter signed by Bashir Yuguda, a former minister, who is chairman of the book presentation committee, said My Transition Hours “gives some insight into the 2015 presidential election and also reflects on some key decisions by the former president while in office.”
