Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan said Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must do the right thing at its December convention by electing a courageous chairman that would run the party democratically.

Jonathan stated this when he received one of the party’s national chairmanship aspirants, Tunde Adeniran, in his office in Abuja.

He said that as an opposition party, PDP needed a competent, reliable, courageous and bridge-building chairman who could also correct and tell a seating president the truth.

“We must do the right thing. We must elect a chairman that will run the party democratically.

“We need a courageous chairman that knows that imposition is destructive.

“We need a chairman who by God’s grace if we win election by 2019, when the president makes certain mistakes, he will be courageous enough to correct him.

“We need a chairman that can lead us to victory and sustain that victory,” Jonathan said.

He stressed the need to organise the party well and elect “good materials” that will lead PDP to victory in 2019, saying that PDP could win next general elections if it did the right thing.

“What we need is a person that can give proper leadership for this country, a chairman that can lead us to elect good material for the presidency.

“We need a chairman that will bring the proper change and economic growth for this country.”

He restated that PDP did well from 1999 to 2015, “even though some people came up with propaganda and lies that 16 years of the party in government was a waste.”

“The PDP administration for 16 years did well and will continue to do well but this administration has done nothing. They deployed propaganda and lies at a professional level.”

“In the power sector, we did well to revive it.  A state governor attacked our government, saying that any serious government should be able to fix the power challenge within six months.

“Today, APC has been in power for how many years now? Fortunately the then governor is in the APC government as a minister.”

Goodluck Jonathan said that he led government when criticism for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 when global crude price was going for over 100 dollars, was high.

He said that the pump price was later reduced to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped “and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower.

“Now the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143. Those who attacked us do not say anything because they have seen it.”

Earlier, Adeniran had said that his visit was to seek Jonathan’s support and blessing, and stressed the need for PDP to get its leadership right.

He said that his ambition of becoming national chairman of the party was not just for the fun of it but to run the party the way it was suppose to be run.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    He may have done nothing, but the fact that he got you out of government before bleeding the county dry is good enough. I am not holding brief for Buhari, but Jonathan has absolutely no moral authority to speak on Buhari’s achievements or lack thereof.

    Oga GEJ please sit down somewhere. If you weren’t such a failure, no one would have felt the need to vote for PMB. Do you know how hard it is to make PMB look good?, to make him seem like a better choice? Somehow you managed to achieve it. Just please stop talking.

    Truth be told GEJ is not lying if some persons were corrupt in GEJ’s tenure does not mean overall performance of the government is bad! Tell me one thing that the present administration has done right? Name just one in Healthcare, Power, Agriculture, Petroleum resources, Solid minerals, Transportation… Just name one only one! They have done nothing and are even destroying the positive gains of the last administration and perfecting the negatives… make we leave trash for LAWMA joor…
