Northern PDP Leaders Betrayed Jonathan – Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has attributed the 2015 presidential election defeat to insincerity of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s ministers and northern leaders of the of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor stated this in the latest issue of ‘The Interview,’ a monthly magazine published by the Managing Director/Editor-In-Chief, Azu Ishiekwene.
According to him, the party’s former chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, deceived the former president and told him outright lies about his chances of winning the 2015 presidential elections.
“Let me tell you the truth; so many people were not sincere with Jonathan. You saw that even in the way some were being unduly sycophantic on issues that were totally out of point…I saw there was a lot of deceit.
“Some of them would say, ‘Your Excellency Sir, as I’m speaking with you now, so and so state is down for PDP’. It was all lies.”
Wike attacked the northern leaders of the party, saying, “PDP in the North ganged up against Jonathan. Let the truth be told! Nobody will die! They were not sincere to him!”
He said it was a mark of complicity that even though Jonathan was stoned in some states and the governors in those states watched idly by, adding that, “If I were in Jonathan’s shoes, I won’t take it; let the heavens fall!”
