Former PDP Chairman blames Jonathan for party’s woes

11 July 2016, 16:50

Abuja -  A former Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vincent Ogbulafor, has blamed the party’s crisis on former President, Goodluck Jonathan, reports Vanguard.

Ogbulafor noted that Jonathan's decision to contest the 2015 presidential election was the beginning of the crisis in the party.

The former National Chairman stated that the best thing Jonathan should have done was to support a northern candidate in 2015 since there was a zoning arrangement on ground.

He said the zoning arrangement had worked for the party for almost 16 years before Jonathan because of his greed for power decided to push it aside.

He noted that party leaders had agreed at a meeting that power would stay in the North for eight years before it returns to the South for another eight years.

Ogbulafor said Jonathan should have supported a Northerner and make him President and agree that when he finishes, power will come to the South.

The former National Chairman added that because he insisted that the party must stand by the zoning arrangement, he was removed from office by Jonathan.

He noted that under Jonathan, the party had five National Chairmen.
