Presidency speaks on why Jonathan is angry with PDP
The Presidency has reacted to claims by former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, who gave reasons why former President Goodluck Jonathan decided to work for the APC in the November 16 gubernatorial election in Bayelsa State.
Lamido stated that Jonathan decided to work for the victory of the APC to prevent the Buhari administration from probing him over Malabu Oil deal.
Reacting to the claims by Lamido, President Buhari’s aide, Garba Shehu described it as “false and irresponsible”.
“It just doesn’t make any sense,’’ Shehu said people who make wild allegations during interviews should be made to produce the facts backing their claims by editors. A newspaper can be sued for granting space to people who belch false allegations against individuals with no proof.”
Shehu added that Jonathan had more reasons to work against his party the PDP without Buhari’s interference.
“Anyone who has been following the politics of Bayelsa State should be aware of the sour relationship between Dr. Jonathan and the incumbent governor, Seriake Dickson. That’s more than enough reason for the former president to decide to work against his party, if indeed he did.
“We really must stop this habit of blaming President Buhari for everything, including issues that are not his business,” he said.
