President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, said that former President Goodluck Jonathan and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) were not mentally prepared for the defeat they suffered during the last general elections.
Buhari spoke through the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a keynote address delivered at an event on Strengthening Nigeria’s Transition Framework for Democratic Consolidation organized by the National Democratic Institute, NDI.
The address was entitled: “The Challenges of Transition in Nigeria and the Imperatives for a New Framework.”
“Our experience in the last transition process was unique despite the fact that we have held many general elections and transitioned from one government to another.
“Indeed, the last election heralded the first real transition in the history of our nation, being the first time that an opposition party will sweep the ruling party out of power,” Mohammed said.
