I Haven’t Left PDP – Goodluck Jonathan
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has refuted reports making the rounds that he has dumped the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, reaffirming that he remains a member of the opposition.

Jonathan described the PDP as a friend that carries people along.

The PDP stalwart disclosed this when he spoke at the supreme court/thanksgiving service of Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State, held at the State Ecumenical Centre, Yenagoa, Weekend.

Jonathan said, “PDP has been a very friendly party. I am a PDP member, and I know from the beginning till today that it has been a very friendly party. PDP is a party that carries everybody along. Let us work together for the interest of our people.

“We should learn to play politics as politics and not as a war; at the end of every political process, let all of us come together and support whoever by divine providence God has made to be there.

“In Nigeria, what we know, especially at the national level, is government change through coups. And at the end of that coup, whether the coup succeeds or not both parties live as enemies. Sometimes they stay as enemies till they die.

“But our democratic process is recognised by law. So we the modern-day politicians should not begin to practice democracy and contestation to power as if we are organising a coup. At the end of the political process, we expect that both parties should come together. The winner carries everybody along, and leaders who contested the election must know that it was a political process known by law and whoever wins, we agree that God gave him that position.”
