Jonathan didn’t want to offend anybody… and he was betrayed – Bamanga Tukur

Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bamanga Tukur, says former President, Goodluck Jonathan, was betrayed by people around him.

Tukur said Jonathan wanted to please everybody and not offend anyone, adding that people took advantage of this and messed him up.

He stated this in a recent interview with Vanguard.

“Maybe people don’t understand Jonathan. He wanted to be fair. I always say to them, I said look, party is not a tea party, where you have to please everybody, it is not possible.

You have to understand the responsibility you are taking and not to allow yourself to agree with everyone you want to please. He is a simple person, really and sincerely. He wants to make sure he does not offend some.

I don’t believe that if you are in government you cannot offend people because people may come with their own selfish interest and if you want to allow them to do it, then they will mess you up. To me, Jonathan was really sabotaged in a way or betrayed by people around him.

I told Jonathan straight forward. I said run your government let me run the party by principle because I knew that the party that would mess him up or build him up.”
