Jonathan shouldn’t have contested, says Fayose
Ayo Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, says former president Goodluck Jonathan should not have participated in the 2015 presidential election.
Though Fayose was one of the main supporters of the ex-president in the build up to the election, the governor said those who sang to Jonathan to run did not allow him get back home, after the defeat, before saying they had retired from politics.
He said the elders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must take the back seat for condemning the party to a presidential loss in 2015.
He was speaking on Politics Today, a programme on Channels TV.
“I am an ardent supporter of former President Goodluck Jonathan, I love him, I would continue to defend his cause, I would continue to stand up for him, because he did well,” he said.
“In my opinion, the only thing Jonathan did that I keep saying, that I hardly want to say, is that if I were him I wouldn’t have contested.
