2015: Jonathan Lost For Refusal To Rotate Power To The North – PDP

Jonathan-sadThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Saturday that it lost the March 28 Presidential election to Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) because former president Goodluck Jonathan failed to honour the agreement the party entered into with the North that after eight years by the South, the North would then have its own turn.

According to PDP, Jonathan did break the power rotation pact by succumbing to pressure from some governors, party leaders and stakeholders that he should contest the 2015 Presidential election instead of allowing the North to contest and complete its traditional eight-year tenure.

Now, the party has vowed that with the defeat after 16 years in government and now in the opposition, it has learnt a serious lesson of respecting zoning and agreements in line with the party’s constitution.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja, PDP National Vice Chairman, South South, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh explained that there was a gentleman’s arrangement by the 34 ‘great’ men who formed the PDP that they would start with rotation of power after eight years between the South and the North, starting with the South from where former president Olusegun Obasanjo emerged in 1999.
