What Goodluck Jonathan said about Buhari, APC government over NASS siege

Goodluck Jonathan, Ex Nigerian President

Nigerian Former President, Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday reacted to the invasion of the National by men of the Department of State Services, DSS.

In his reaction, the Bayelsa-born politician reposted one of his quotes in 2015, which described the All Progressives Congress as a party with little or no regard for human rights.

The former President posted the message on his official Facebook page at the time the DSS laid siege to the National Assembly and prevented lawmakers of the opposition party, especially the PDP from going in.

We reported yesterday that the DSS as early as 6:00 am, blocked all entry or exit from the National Assembly. The development was alleged to be part of the plot to effect a change of the Senate leadership.

Jonathan’s post read in part, “The choice before Nigerians in the coming election is simple: A choice between going forward and going backward; between the new ways and the old ways; between freedom and repression; between a record of visible achievements and beneficial reforms and desperate power seekers with empty promises.”

Followers of the former President reacted to the comment. While some hailed him for being a Democrat during his time in office, a few others berated and reminded him of how under his watch in 2014, members of the House of Representatives were barred from gaining entry into the green chamber during a failed attempt to remove the then Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal.

Chidispalace earlier reported that the incident led to the sack of the Director General of the DSS, Lawal Daura by the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

Why the man in Aso Rock is not Buhari – Ex-APC spokesperson, Abdullahi

Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, has shared his reasons the Muhammadu Buhari Nigerians voted into power in 2015 is not the same President at Aso Rock today.

Abdullahi, who was part of the mass defection from the ruling party, called on Nigerians to jump out of Buhari’s train, adding that the man presiding over the affairs of the nation today was not the leader Nigerians trooped out enmasse to elect in 2015.

He said this Monday in a chat with Vanguard in reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Elders’ Forum.

The Director, Communications and Strategies of the PDP, Presidential Campaign Organisation pointed out that he was not joining the cloning debate, but insisted however, that Buhari had dumped the principles for which he was widely adored.

He said, “Some of us risked our political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance vehicle.

“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari we have today is the not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.

“The Buhari most of us risked our political careers for was the Buhari whose memory we carried with us since 1983. That Buhari had zero tolerance for corruption and was a strong -willed leader.

“But the Buhari of today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC) to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
