Edwin Clark, former Commissioner for Information and an Ijaw national leader, on Tuesday said the former president Goodluck Jonathan is angry with the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, over the 2015 betrayal, and that is why he stopped attending meetings.

Jonathan was betrayed when he wanted to be reelected in 2015 as the President of Nigeria, by the party members led by the former National Chairman and past Governor of Bauchi State, Adamu Muazu.

While Speaking yesterday at his Asokoro residence in Abuja, he said, “Now coming home politically, Jonathan was the president for some time as the result of the death of President Yar’Adua. Jonathan ruled for about five years, he is a Christian and the northerners said it was their turn.

“From 2011, they have been worrying Jonathan. Even in 2015, the northern PDP leaders ganged up with APC, Tinubu and removed Jonathan from office. They did not campaign, Jonathan was on his own.

According to Clark  “when people say why Jonathan is not in PDP, now attending PDP meetings, I can safely say that he’s learning his lesson that the people he trusted did not trust him. They squandered the party’s money and left. he knows how they betrayed him, how the northern PDP governors contributed money towards Buhari’s success, how members of government betrayed him.

“The national Chairman of PDP at the time was Governor (Adamu) Mu’azu. He did not go to his hometown to campaign, he was only following Jonathan about, he knew what he was doing. Everyone of them wanted Buhari to win. So, Buhari won. He has ruled for eight years.

“Now, the same northerners are now saying competence, no zoning, integrity.

“It fell for the prey, they manoeuvred PDP with Alhaji Abubakar who has been wanting to be president of Nigeria over the years, championing the cause of division. So, the PDP, a party we love, PDP a party of southern Nigeria disappointed us.

He further said, “In 2019, 11 million people voted for Atiku Abubakar, PDP. Five million from the north, five million from the south. Now he doesn’t think that we ever did anything for him.

“So, Nigeria has changed. If anyone tells you that all is well in Nigeria that person living in a fool’s paradise.”
