Jonathan should take responsibility for his defeat in 2015 presidential election – Ijaw Group
Prominent Ijaw groups and elders have told former President Goodluck Jonathan, to take responsibility for his defeat in the 2015 presidential election.
According to them, Jonathan should stop blaming the North for any conspiracy.
Two prominent Ijaw groups, Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Worldwide and the Ijaw National Congress (INC) including some Ijaw leaders, said the former president should come clean on how he lost to Muhammadu Buhari.
The President of IYC, Eric Omare, said Jonathan shot himself in the foot, by not making use of the security and intelligence at his disposal.
“I would like to align myself with statements credited to former Senate President David Mark, who said that he told Jonathan that there was a conspiracy against him, but how Jonathan could not decipher the information was what he could not fathom.
“Jonathan would not say he didn’t know about the conspiracy. You cannot be the commander-in-chief with all security at your disposal without knowing of a conspiracy by a region against you.
“It was a conspiracy that was obvious to all Nigerians except himself. He needs not say it,” he said.
