Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said he won’t be able to sleep well if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not return to power in 2019.
He spoke when he received Bode George, a chairmanship aspirant of the PDP, at his Otuoke residence in Bayelsa state.
What Jonathan said:
- Jonathan took responsibility of the PDP’s defeat in 2015, saying the opposition party has to take back power.
- He promised that past mistakes will not be repeated.
- Jonathan advised the party to take steps to regain the confidence of the electorate.
“Whether I like it or not, I must take responsibility for the defeat because I led the party to the election,” the media team of George quoted Jonathan as saying.
“My priority now is how to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party regains the presidency in 2019… The only thing that will make me sleep well is to ensure that the PDP comes back to power.”
