Buhari harassing my family – Jonathan

Muhammadu Buhari and Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan said his family is being hounded by the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jonathan said this in the book, Against the Run of Play, written by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi.

“I feel sad about the way my family is being hounded, said Jonathan who argued that Buhari could fight corruption in a different way

“Society is like a building. You build it one block at a time. If every president decides to go in to dismantle what his predecessor did, society will never make progress. I expected President Buhari to correct whatever mistakes I may have made and then carry on from there.”

He added that he lost the 2015 presidential election because he was betrayed by some Northern leaders in the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), including the former National Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu.

Hear him: “I felt really betrayed by the result coming from some northern states. Perhaps for ethnic purposes, even security agents colluded with the opposition to come up with spurious results against me. You saw the way the Inspector General of Police, a man I appointed, suddenly turned himself into the ADC to Buhari immediately after the election.

“How could we have lost Ondo, Benue and Plateau states if our people were committed to the cause? If you examine the results, you will see a pattern: in places where ordinarily we were strong, our supporters did not show enough commitment to mobilise the voters.

“What happened was very sad not for me as a person, but for our democracy.”

“Take, for instance, the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu. I believe he joined in the conspiracy against me. For reasons best known to him, he helped to sabotage the election in favour of the opposition.”
