Former President Goodluck Jonathan has dismissed the allegations that he and his wife, Patience are working against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bayelsa State, ahead of the 2019 elections.
Jonathan, who dismissed the claim with a wave of the hand, described those behind it as being dishonest. Recall that, Jonathan’s kinsmen under the auspices of Ogbia Renaissance, OR, had accused the former President of anti-party activities, saying that they had proof that he was angry that his preferred candidates lost out in the National Assembly and House of Assembly primaries.
But speaking with Sun through his media aide, Ikechuckwu Eze, Jonathan insisted that he was not part of any plot to undermine the PDP in Ogbia and Bayelsa East in the forthcoming elections. He said, “It is manifestly dishonest, deceitful and preposterous for anybody to suggest that former president Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is working against the interest of the party on which he rose to occupy the highest office in the land.
“As one of the leaders of the party, having served as president on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, it is obvious that Dr. Jonathan has continued and will continue to work for the success of PDP across the nation. He is also a father-figure and a statesman whose door is open to all Nigerians desirous of visiting or consulting him on sundry matters, including politics. Even then, he has always given his support and blessing to his party’s candidates in all elections.”
