Mr. Doyin Okupe who was the Spokesperson for Former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated reasons why he felt Goodluck Jonathan lost the march 28 Presidential Elections.
Mr. Doyin Okupe was reacting to a statement credited to Chief Raymond Dokpesi, who stated that the candidacy of Goodluck Jonathan was responsible for PDP’s loss in the last elections. Mr. Okupe made this claims on Facebook post on his page.
“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,” Mr. Okupe said in the post.
“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,” Mr. Okupe said.
“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 survived. The situation in Burundi today is highly instructive,”
“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 added.
“I speak today not as a spokesman for President Jonathan. An episode and a proud chapter of my life which has since come to a Close. Rather I speak as a student of History and a veritable stakeholder in the Nigerian project.”
