Goodluck Jonathan’s book, ‘My Transition Hours’, chances are that you are reading a fake version that has found its way through thousands of WhatsApp pages to yours.
Jonathan launched his book on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 in Abuja, with the paper back and hard cover versions now in bookstores near you.
But hackers have not only latched onto the soft copy, they have edited the book to suit their narratives, Jonathan says.
“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”, Jonathan wrote on his Twitter page.
“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.
“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”, Jonathan added.
A scan through online versions of the book, which comes in PDF format, shows that ‘My Transition Hours’ has been edited.
According to a report in Punch, some inaccurate information has been added to the original text while some vital information contained in the real book has been expunged.
Punch adds that while the online, fake version is 254 pages long, the physical, authentic version contains 194 pages.
Some chapters are also glaringly missing from the online version.
