President Goodluck Won't Fight If He Looses President Election to Buhari!

According to dailytrust recent report, the Presidency has assured Nigeria that if President Goodluck Jonathan loses the February 14 presidential election, he would congratulate the winner.

The Minister of State for Works, Dayo Adeyeye, gave the assurance last night while featuring on a Channels Television programme tagged “Politics Today” which was monitored by our correspondent.

Responding to a question on whether the president would congratulate the winner of the forthcoming presidential election if he (Jonathan) loses, Adeyeye answered in the affirmative.

He said: “Of course. President, in many cases we lost governorship elections, was always the first person to congratulate the winner even when the winner is not a member of our party. So, we believe in democracy.”

Asked if the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) persistent attacks on Buhari implied that the party was afraid that Buhari could win next month’s presidential poll, Adeyeye stressed that the PDP was not afraid of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate.

He said the Presidency was not jittery about the coming presidential election, claiming that Jonathan had performed more than any other president since 1999.

“We are not afraid of General Buhari. I believe General Buhari is the easiest person to defeat in any election. Nigeria needs a 21st century leader,” he said.

According to Adeyeye, while Jonathan is a PhD holder, Buhari’s secondary education is still a subject of controversy.

He said Nigerians should also feel concerned about the health status of General Buhari and that of other presidential candidates.

The minister added that Jonathan deserved to be re-elected because of his performance within the last four years.
