Erstwhile President, Goodluck Jonathan has opened up on why the Peoples Democratic Party, lost the 2015 Presidential election and also slam APC's statements of him leaving the economy in ruins.
While speaking in Abuja on Thursday during a meeting with the Ahmed Markarfi & Ali Modu-Sheriff factions of the Peoples Democratic Party, Goodluck Jonathan, disclosed that the PDP lost the 2015 Presidential election because Nigerians decided to vote the party out and not due to failure as widely claimed. The former President noted that all over the world political parties lost elections not because they failed but that the electorate chose to experience another leadership. Jonathan also dismissed claims by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), that his party left the country in ruins after 16 years at the helm of affairs, insisting that his party achieved a lot while in power.
 He said it was not strange for the party to be experiencing difficulties because “every election cycle is a challenge to any political party.”
 
Jonathan said,
Quote
“We are proud to state that PDP had creditably managed the affairs of this country for 16 years. “There is no doubt that our party has in the last two years gone through some difficulties. However, in a democracy this is not strange in the life of a political party, especially after losing power to the opposition, like we did.“At different times, I have also been making efforts to reunite, reconcile and re-energise to become stronger, before the next election. I will like to point out that every election cycle throws up a challenge as well as opportunities for a political party. “A test to re-evaluate its performance, and an opportunity to reform its processes and programmes, towards rediscovering itself to become even more appealing to the electorate, in its next outing.

“This obviously is the area where we have excelled. The fact that we allowed this process to take place peacefully, and freely handed over. “All over the world, political parties lose elections, not because they have entirely failed, but because, in most cases, the people who gave them power in the first place, have decided to hand it over to another party, in order to experience a different kind of leadership.

“This is not a forum for chest-thumping but it is important we highlight some relevant initiatives of past PDP administrations. “Our ideological commitment towards a private sector-led and people-oriented economy manifested in the great achievements we recorded in various sectors including communications, agriculture, public financial management and financial reforms, the financial services rail and roads infrastructure, as well as in the social services.

“In agriculture, we revolutionized the sector by introducing programmes that encouraged more people, including the youths to embrace farming as a thriving business. “We also boosted local capacity for food production, thereby drastically reducing the prize of food stuff and food import bill. “That the PDP Government improved communication in Nigeria through the introduction of Global Systems for Mobile Communications (GSM) and the expansion of the nation’s information and communication technology architecture needs no gainsay.”

Well the ex president Goodluck Jonathan has tried in his part, and our present president MUHAMMADU BUHARI has equally tried too, bringing the fraudster politicians into justice is not easy, but we the citizens were also affect in d cause of fighting corruption, experiencing Recession. I think we should give PDP one more chance to Rule.

If they reform agriculture for 16 years as said. By now, Nigeria should have enough food to feed the themselves, export food and less dependent of food importation. The effect should not have shown when the present administration stoped or increase some food importation.

Secondly, if infrastructure were build ans roads were constructed as said. Lagos-Benin and Ibadan road, Onisha road, and other road present constructed by present administration should have been completed. Am talking about notable roads.
Lagos-Benin road started and abandoned like 2 or 3 times within 16 years of PDP.

Lagos, Abuja and other international airport should not have like this and because some billion was budgeted to rehabilitate this airport like 2 times during 16 years of PDP.

GEJ did his best with good intention but lack responsibility and accountability which allow bad and corrupt followers ruin his integrity. he refused to handle them well.

Bad followers are inevitable in any group or organisation but it is the responsibility of the leader to mange them. They are there in the present administration too.

16 YEARS OF PDP CAUSE MORE DAMAGE TO THIS COUNTRY WHICH WE ARE STILL TRYING TO RECOVER FROM...........THIS IS THE FACT AND COMMON SENSE
