People may be writing left and right; But we know the reasons why we lost in 2015, I’ll soon open up – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has promised to open up on what happened in the  2015 general elections, which led to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) losing the presidential poll to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former president has promised to speak, in due course.

Jonathan said this at a meeting with the Forum of Ex-Speakers of State Houses of Assembly,  who visited him in Abuja yesterday.

The former president said no matter what anyone says,  the PDP recorded several achievements through innumerable reforms it introduced and implemented in the 16 years it ruled the country. 

“PDP is still the strongest party. We know the reasons why we lost elections. People may be writing left and right; at the appropriate time, some of these things would be properly addressed, because of history.

“There are certain things you don’t write now because it would be misunderstood, as if you are playing politics.

“After some years, five, six or eight years, when the beneficiaries have left, you can state it in writing and people will not fight with you.”

Speaking on the anti-corruption war,  Jonathan urged party members not to be intimidated by the manner it is being prosecuted in the country.

The former president  said the issue of corruption in the country is worrisome, and noted that there is need to combat it.

He, however, noted that approach, in the fight against corruption, is also very important.  
“There are stories of corruption. I say this will always be there because if you read the statement of the organisers of the first military coup, their statement was attributed to corruption.

“It will continue to be, but, one day, we will get out of it. Most nations passed through this stage of life.

“The only thing I plead with you is not to politicise certain basic things. Issues of corruption, yes, it is worrisome. Nobody will encourage it.

“The society must come up with reforms, to reduce it, if you cannot eliminate it totally. No society is 100 percent free of some of these vices but the approach you go about it is key.

“You may approach it in a way that it will become detrimental  to the society. It should be done in a way that will enhance the development of the nation.So, we encourage people to do well.”
