Former President Goodluck Jonathan has debunked allegations that he is working against the interest of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bayelsa State ahead of the general elections.
Jonathan, who dismissed the claim with a wave of the hand, said it was “It is manifestly dishonest, deceitful and preposterous” for anybody to even insinuate that.
Jonathan’s kinsmen under the auspices of Ogbia Renaissance, OR, had accused the former President of anti-party activities.
They also said that they had proof that he was angry that his preferred candidates lost out in the National Assembly and House of Assembly primaries.
However, reacting, Jonathan, speaking with Sun through his media aide, Ikechuckwu Eze, maintained that he was working against the PDP in Ogbia and Bayelsa East in the forthcoming elections.
He said, “It is manifestly dishonest, deceitful and preposterous for anybody to suggest that former president Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is working against the interest of the party on which he rose to occupy the highest office in the land.
“As one of the leaders of the party, having served as president on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, it is obvious that Dr. Jonathan has continued and will continue to work for the success of PDP across the nation.
“He is also a father-figure and a statesman whose door is open to all Nigerians desirous of visiting or consulting him on sundry matters, including politics. Even then, he has always given his support and blessing to his party’s candidates in all elections.”
