lost 2015 election Intentionally, by Kpodoh, ex-Bayelsa Security
Adviser – Former Security Adviser to Bayelsa State Government, Chief
Perekeme Kpodoh, yesterday, said that former President Goodluck Jonathan
lost the 2015 presidential election because of the retaliation from
those he betrayed politically. Kpodoh, who was reacting to the book,
Against the Run of Play, authored by
Adeniyi, Chairman of the Editorial Board of ThisDay Newspapers, said
that though the book was full of contentious claims and finger pointing
by the former president, “He should know that those he betrayed waited
for him during the presidential election to have their pound of flesh.
The loss at the poll was self-inflicted.
Jonathan Kpodoh, who was the Interim Chairman of All Progressives
Congress, APC, in Bayelsa State, said that the former president betrayed
the people of the Niger Delta by refusing to change their status with
roads and other infrastructure. Kpodoh argued that the people of the
North East voted against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the
former president because they felt betrayed over the issues of the
Chibok girls and the partial state of emergency invoked by the former
Presidency never wanted the people of the North East to vote. But they
shocked him by coming out en masse to vote despite threats by Boko
Haram.” On the reported claim by the former president that President
Muhammadu Buhari succeeded against Boko Haram because he is from the
North , Kpodoh said the claim was a defeatist argument, noting, “Buhari
won against Boko Haram because he is committed to the nation’s unity.
Jonathan lost against Boko Haram because he lost the trust of the North
East on the abduction of the Chibok girls.
the Chibok girls were kidnapped, the Jonathan’s Presidency had doubt.
If they had moved quickly, they would have saved the Chibok girls. “
