2019: Nigeria has lost respect – Jonathan advises Buhari against rigging election

Unread postby Wsj » Sat May 26, 2018 10:54 am

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed disappointment on how Nigeria is currently being used as a negative example in the international community.


Jonathan citing recent instances when the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, mocked the poor state of security in Nigeria and the naira’s weakening status, said he felt ashamed that Nigeria had lost its respect in Africa.

Jonathan stated this at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Friday.


He said, “He (Ghanaian President) said Ghana is not like Nigeria where cattle roam the streets. At another occasion in the United Kingdom, he made scathing remarks about Nigeria’s currency.

“I feel ashamed as a former President that the president of a neighbouring country used Nigeria as negative examples.

“If a neighbouring African president will use Nigeria to make negative examples, then we as leaders must know certain things are wrong in the country. That means we as leaders must change the way we do things.”


The former President further advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resist pressure to rig the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State and subsequent elections in the country.

“I don’t believe anybody can defeat the PDP in Ekiti if election is going to be held.

“I use this opportunity to call on Mr. President because I was there before. When you are there, there is so much pressure on you to use your power to subjugate democracy.

“Don’t do that because when you are going; the only thing you leave behind is your good name. If you use it wrongly, posterity will haunt you. I call on Mr. President to use his power to strengthen democracy,” Jonathan added.
