President Goodluck Jonathan, facing an ex-Head-of-State in Presidential polls next month and constantly being berated by another one, has threatened to expose ex-Heads-of-States if he wins the next presidential election.
Speaking during the inauguration of the Goodluck/Sambo 2015 Presidential Campaign Organisation, PCO, at the PDP Presidential Campaign office, Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja he promised to unfold to Nigerians what his government has done in the last couple of years that presidents and heads of state before him could not achieve.
“I will expose my predecessors’ failings” –Jonathan
Jonathan promised to expose the failings of his predecessors including Buhari, which stunted the country’s growth and development.
His threats come on the heels of former military dictator, Ibrahim Babangida, claiming that his eight-year regime was corruption-free compared to those of his predecessors.
President Jonathan, also noted that his administration has performed more than the previous ones with the nation’s economy as the largest in Africa and said: “When we start campaigns, we will confront them with what we have done as a government, we will tell them what they did not do when they were heads of state. Some people want to still keep these children as shoe cleaners, we must lift them up. Our children should not be used as cannon folders. They should be allowed to move forward to be governors like us.” The president said.
“We have everything it takes to run an excellent and victorious campaign. Our great party has demonstrated to Nigerians that it is the party with the broadest appeal. We are the strongest and the biggest. We have engaged the people of Nigeria positively with people-friendly policies, which have moved Nigeria forward.”
He continued: “We have sustained the democratic tradition. We have strengthened democratic institutions. We inherited a rather complex security challenge but we are waging a determined war against it. We are succeeding in preventing terrorists and insurgents from turning more of our communities into enclaves for their dastardly activities.
