Insincerity Caused Jonathan, PDP Election Loss – Gov Aliyu

Niger State governor, Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu, has again insisted that President Goodluck Jonathan entered into single term agreement and failure of the agreement led to the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last elections.
Consequently, Aliyu said that (PDP) members saw the defeat coming and it came to pass by wide margins in all elections by the PDP.
Aliyu who was a special guest of honour at a convocation lecture organised by the Federal University of Technology, Minna, yesterday at the permanent site of the University, Gidan Kwanu Minna, declared that “many of us saw it coming, when I reminded us that we had an agreement for one term, they nearly crucified me, and when I led the G7 governors, they did not do what we wanted them to do until five members left, and they later did what we asked them to do.”
According him, “I recall also that when the APC came on board, I was the first person to say I was very happy that now we have a strong party to put PDP on its toes and many people were asking me I was really a member up to the last election; my accusation has always been that I was a supporter of APC and now you have seen the result.”
He explained further that besides the fundamental factors that led to the failure of the PDP, it was obvious that “Nigerians wanted a change and Nigerians got the change” because the PDP has been around for 16 years making the party prone to mistakes.
The governor however posited that these factors will enable the party to understand the situation and guide people next time on what to do reiterating that “even when I told some of us (PDP members) that we had a one-term agreement, they nearly crucified me. Now, sir (turning to Prof Ahmed Alkali the Pro-Chancellor of the university) you have seen the results.”
Speaking on the lecture, “The Role of Law in the Enhancement of Socio-Economic Growth of the Nation,” Governor Aliyu noted that it is not only government officials that are corrupt hence corruption starts from the home front. He gave an instance where a junior civil servant with two wives and over 20 children also breed corruption because there is no way his salary can take care of those children.
