APC says Jonathan is a push and start president

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has said Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, the former Nigeria President is nothing but push and start president. 

Mr. Yekini Nabena, the party deputy national publicity secretary, said the former president never won an election. 

Nabena was reacting to a statement credited to the former president, where he was reported to have said, All Progressives Congress (APC) lack the political capacity to win an election in Bayelsa state.

The former president was reported to have said at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders’ meeting in Yenagoa, the Beyelsa state capital.

Addressing pressmen at Abuja, the Nigeria capital city on Thursday, Nabena said, the ruling APC defeated the candidate of Jonathan in his senatorial district during the general election.

He has since warned Jonathan, to guide the kind of comments he makes to respect himself.

“Jonathan is a push and starts president who is attempting to rewrite history on presidential elections conducted under his watch in Bayelsa state while he was president,” he said.

“He never won as votes counted. Aided by security agents, election results were simply announced by the election body in favour of the PDP.

“Former President Goodluck Jonathan even lost in his senatorial zone in the last 2019 National Assembly election won by the APC candidate. So one wonders the party Jonathan refers to as not being on the ground in Bayelsa state.”

The deputy spokesperson said the PDP is planning to rig the Bayelsa state governorship election.

“No amount of falsehood and rigging can stop PDP’s imminent defeat in the forthcoming governorship election,” Nabena said.
