Ex-President Jonathan Throws President Buhari Into Panic Mode As He Backs Bukola Saraki’s Decision Ahead Of The 2019 General Elections

Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has thrown the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Presidency into panic, by backing the Senate President, Bukola Saraki-led Senate for its recent re-ordering of the 2019 general elections, as contained in an amendment to the Electoral Act.

Ike Abonyi, the Special Adviser to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, made this disclosure in a statement.

Recall, that the National Assembly Conference Committee on Electoral Act Amendment, on Tuesday, adopted a re-ordered sequence of the 2019 elections, which now puts the Presidential election last on the timetable.

The sequence of the polls now has the National Assembly elections coming first, followed by the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly polls.

According to the statement, Jonathan reportedly said: “What the National Assembly did would help in the election of quality persons into various positions.”

“Holding Presidential election first will affect the quality of persons that will emerge in other polls, because of the bandwagon effect.

“The ruling party, the APC should see it from national and patriotic interests, since laws are not meant for persons in power at a particular time”, Jonathan reportedly said.

“I believe that PDP will return to power in 2019, if we continue to build confidence, especially as the ruling party has failed to meet up their promises and give hope to the people.

“Propaganda may help you win an election but, cannot help you govern, and that is what APC has seen in the last 32 months”, the ex-President reportedly said.
