NEWS: PDP Hails Ex-President Jonathan at 59


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
yesterday congratulated Nigeria’s former
president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, on his 59th
In the congratulatory message issued on
behalf of the party by the Chairman of the
National Caretaker Committee of the PDP,
Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, the part
praised the former president for some of the
legacies he created while in office.
The statement signed by the PDP spokesman,
Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said many Nigerians
are clamouring for the return of the Bayelsa
State-born former leader due to the present
difficulties facing the nation.
The party congratulated the former president
on behalf of the Board of Trustees (BoT),
National Executive Committee (NEC),
National Caucus and the entire PDP family
on the occasion of his 59 birthday
“At 59, your legacies and achievements in
academia, politics, governance and social life
remain indelible and worthy of emulation by
well-meaning people. You are a shining light
during and after office as one of the Heads
of State in Nigeria and Africa in general who
willingly conceded power to the opposition in
the interest of peace and democracy.
“In less than two years of leaving office,
Nigerians are yearning and crying for your
return especially as your successor who won
the 2015 presidential election on the altar of
propaganda and lies against your
administration has done no better since he
took over from you on May 29, 2015.
“The harvest of your electoral reforms for
free, fair and credible electoral and
democratic processes for which the All
Progressives Congress (APC ) is the primary
beneficiary of have been eroded and quickly
replaced with inconclusive elections, electoral
apathy, voter inducement, intimidation,
harassments and unfair incarceration.
