The former aide to ex-President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, Doyink Okupe, has mentioned 3 ‘mistakes’ his boss made as the 2015 election drew nearer.
On his Facebook page, Okupe mentioned 3 ‘mistakes’ his boss made as the 2015 election drew nearer.
According to him, Jonathan should’ve sacked Attahiru Jega as INEC chairman.
“If any error was made it was firstly the failure of the PDP administration to sack the unfair and compromised electoral Officer who was allowed to conduct the election in spite of his obvious and profuse partisanship.
He said allowing INEC to use the Card Reader during election was a costly mistake.
“The second error was the inexplicable acquiescence of the PDP government to the use of the infamous Card Reader which was skilfully manipulated to the disadvantage of the PDP presidential candidate.
He also said Jonathan shouldn’t have folded arms and agree to be the victim.
“The third error of the PDP was to have fielded a good, God fearing and patriotic man who in spite of his enormous power, the avalanche of deployable arsenal of war at his disposal, transformed himself to be the victim and refused to fight so that his countrymen may live and his nation survive. The situation in Burundi today is highly instructive.
“The impression created in the media recently that the candidacy of Goodluck Jonathan was an error is itself a grand fallacy which totally undermined the whole truth about the sanctity and correctness of the wisdom of the PDP National Executive committee which made and ratified that decision,” he added.
“All over the world when an incumbent signifies intention for a second term it is customary that the established machinery of the party wholly backs and gratifies such intentions.
“Certainly history will treat Goodluck Jonathan as one of the greatest heroes of this generation of African Leaders. Definitely NOT an Error by any stretch of imagination,” he concluded.
