You Can’t Hold Jonathan Accountable If He Doesn’t Have Your Support – Tukur Tells Nigerians

Published

on

jonathan-tukurThe immediate past national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday told a group campaigning for President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition in 2015, to match talks with deeds.

Tukur, who spoke when the group, Goodluck Solidarity Mandate (GSM), paid him a courtesy call at his Wuse residence in Abuja, said when a person is elected president of the country, everybody owns a duty to support him stressing that if followers support their leaders, they will be sure of holding them accountable.

“Jonathan is the one, support him and ensure that peace reign, ensure we succeed because we are the majority. Because of that, we have to come together, unite ourselves to ensure that 2015 by the grace of God, because of his good transformation agenda, we give him a second term he is entitled to by even the constitution of our country, it is our right”, he said.

The ex-PDP chairman, who was recently appointed ‘Ambassador-at-Large’ by the president, noted that without peace, leaders cannot carry out whatever good intention they have for themselves and for the people, stressing that there is every need to support Jonathan’s transformation agenda.

“If you don’t support your leader who is leading you in the country, you cannot also demand from him what you believe he should do for you”, he stated.

Earlier, national coordinator of the group, Olusegun Akinbodewa, who led state leaders of the group to the event, said the group’s target is to capture the south-west for President Goodluck Jonathan.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

Bode George, Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against supporting Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 Presidency.

Bode George made this remark in a statement titled, “The jamboree visit to the Villa: My Birthday Offering.”

The former National Port Authority boss warned Buhari against falling to the antics of those who would ignore the issues of Lagos State to engage in a needless scheming in partisan engagement.

Bode-George also condemned the recent visit of some APC chieftains, Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the State House, Abuja.

The PDP chieftain said: “The visit of Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the seat of power in Abuja is needless, unnecessary, veiled in some poorly hidden agenda that is woven in apparently self-serving ulterior personalised desperation.

“It is easy to discern that the visit is stripped of any patriotic progression, lacking in balanced national leadership, voided of a spirit of sacrifice and developmental vision. The very absence of Bola Tinubu from the jamboree screams to high heavens that the meeting itself is a covert placatory softening of the ground for Tinubu himself. I am pretty certain that in his very absence, Tinubu occupies the centrality of the discussion.

“I will advise Baba Akande who governed Osun State with principled, incorruptible leadership to kindly help us drop off Bola Tinubu at Iragbiji as he makes his way back to Ila-Orangun, rather than engaging in fruitless pleading sessions for a man who is fixated on a warped pipe-dream about governing Nigeria. He should pay restitution for the egregious stripping of the Lagosian coffers.”
