2015: Threats Of Violence, Bloodshed Unnecessary – Ogbeh

Published

on

audu-ogbehA former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic, PDP, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said weekend that President Goodluck Jonathan had the right to contest elections in 2015.

Ogbeh, who is now a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, also appealed to Nigerians to desist from making inflammatory statements, following threats of violence and bloodshed by a section of Nigerians over President Jonathan’s 2015 ambition.

He said:  “There are those who said that if President Jonathan contests in 2015, there will be bloodshed. I don’t think we should talk that way.

“If the court says he is free to contest and the constitution allows him, no one of us has the right to stop him.

“On the other hand, the opposition can prepare and contest against him, provided there is a free and fair election. That’s all we need to work on”.

On threat of bloodshed, Ogbeh said Nigeria had witnessed so much shedding of blood already, adding that such comments were inimical to the overall interest of the country.

Ogbeh, who spoke exclusively to Vanguard against the backdrop of a statement credited to a Northern leader and Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, that blood would flow in the country should President Jonathan seek re-election in 2015 (he has since said he was quoted out of context), enjoined Nigerians, especially politicians to cultivate the virtues of patience and perseverance, irrespective of any frustrations.

Ogbeh said: “I will like to appeal to all politicians and leaders in this country to watch their language. When you hear somebody saying there will be bloodshed or that blow will flow in 2015, it is not the way to speak in a country that is seeking peace and progress.

“No matter what the frustrations are, we must not wish our country doom and damnation because we already have too much blood flowing in this country and we can’t talk that way”.

“There have been challenges along the line – the inclement national financial weather, the COVID-19 pandemic and others not so significant. But you have weathered the storm admirably and steadied the ship of state.

“The challenges will no doubt present a new format as you step into the third year. These are heightened political participation, pressure to deliver more dividends of democracy and increased demands from the political system. I have no doubt that you will cope nicely.

“Please continue to make the welfare of the people your biggest concern. They are the reason for the state. Without them there will be no government or any political office to occupy.

“Once again, congratulations, as I wish you a resounding success in office and every aspect of life.

“My kind regards to the good wife, Alhaja Kafayat Oyetola and the entire cabinet of the State of Osun.”
