Jonathan Has No Plan To Rig Election – Suleiman


Minister of National Planning, Dr. Abubakar Suleiman, said weekend that President Goodluck Jonathan had no plan to rig next month’s general elections.

Suleiman said this at a reception organised in his honour and other past deans, by the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Abuja mini campus, Gwagwalada.

According to him, the appointment of an activist in the person of Prof. Attahiru Jega as chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Jonathan was a demonstration of the large heart of his leadership.

“One thing we should all know is that Jonathan does not have the plan to rig himself back. If he had or has that plan, he would not have appointed Jega, an activist, as the INEC chairman. Even on my appointment, Mr. President demonstrated a large heart.

“This administration is working and the evidence is there. I will continue to do more for the university and I can do better, and if you truly like me, vote to return Goodluck Jonathan.

“I was an active unionist during my days as a university lecturer. I led a protest against the then vice chancellor, which we carried up to the government level, yet Mr. President decided, devoid of any sentiment, to appoint me a minister. It takes one with a large heart to do that,” Suleiman said.

In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Mike Adikwu, commended the minister for always putting the university first.


  1. Since the end of military rule in 1999, Nigerian elections have been widely condemned for state-sponsored manipulation and fraud bordering on the farcical. Observers generally gave a clean bill of health to 2011 vote. An such will repeat itself again.

  2. In recent decades, Nigeria had come to be known for flawed elections. People outside and Nigerians themselves had come to believe that elections could not reflect the will of the people, but today people showed that they can change that because of Jonathan’s administration.

  3. The APC are the ones planing to rig the elections, thats why they dont want the military to be involved so that they can perpetuate the evil in their mind..GEJ will never allow that nigeria will have a free and fair election
