Revealed: Why we named him Goodluck – President Jonathan’s parents

motherHave you been wondering why our amiable president was named Goodluck? The answer has been revealed in his authorized biography..According to his mother, Madam Eunice Aye Jonathan….“Madam Eunice recalls that there was nothing special about the day on which Goodluck was born in Otuoke. His birth was however very easy compared to her other experiences with childbirth. She recalled, “I often had prolonged labour during childbirth, sometimes for up to a wee, and because of this, I usually had still-births. But when it was the turn of Goodluck, I delivered him the very day I started having labour pains. This surprised me”.

“Apart from this, Eunice, did not regard the day as extraordinary. According to her, the people of Otuoke went about their duties as usual. No dramatic event occurred. Perhaps, the fact that nothing special happened was indeed significant and the truly important event was his birth.

His father also said:“ I called him Goodluck because although life was hard for me when he was born, I had this feeling that this boy would bring me good luck.” His paternal grandmother, Sarah, also declared that her grandson, in his adulthood, would shake the world the same way ‘king’ Azikiwe was doing at the time.”
