2015 Election: The Mistakes, Jonathan, PDP Made – Okupe

 Doyin Okupe, a former spokesperson to Goodluck Jonathan,
a former Nigerian president has outlined the errors his boss and their
political party made before the 2015 election.

Okupe who was reacting to claims that candidacy of Jonathan was
in
error stated that the decision to pick his ex-boss was in order but
noted that Prof. Attahiru Jega, former INEC chairman should have been
sacked because of his political leaning.

“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,” Okupe said on Facebook. Doyin Okupe


Read his full reaction below:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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 but
rather I speak as a student of History and a veritable stakeholder in
the Nigerian project.
