The deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena has described former President Goodluck Jonathan as “a push and start president” who never won any election.
The deputy spokesperson of the ruling party said this in reaction to a statement credited to the ex-Nigerian ruler recently.
Jonathan, during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders’ meeting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had no political presence at all levels in the state.
In his section, Nabena, while speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, said Jonathan’s candidate was defeated by APC in his senatorial district during the last general election.
His words, “Jonathan is a push and start president who is attempting to rewrite history on presidential elections conducted under his watch in Bayelsa state while he was president,” he said.
“He never won as votes never counted. Aided by security agents, election results were simply announced by the election body in favour of the PDP.
“Former President Goodluck Jonathan even lost in his senatorial zone in the last 2019 National Assembly election won by the APC candidate. So one wonders the party Jonathan refers to as not being on ground in Bayelsa state.”
“It is clear that no amount of falsehood and rigging can stop PDP’s imminent defeat in the forthcoming governorship election,” Nabena said.
