No Need To Reply Cameron, APC replies Jonathan
- says Nigerian knew of Jonathan’s negligence
The All Progressives Congress, APC says former President Goodluck Jonathan should not have replied the former Prime Ministers of United Kingdom, David Cameron.
Cameron, in his new book: “For the Record” claimed that Jonathan refused to accept help to rescue the Chibok girls who were abducted in Government Secondary School in April 2014 Boko Haram terrorists.
But Jonathan immediately replied saying Cameron never really liked him because he refused to be pushed into allowing same-sex marriage in Nigeria.
Jonathan also explained that he wrote a letter to the United Kingdom, and the United States under the leadership of Cameron and Barrack Obama respectively, seeking assistance for the rescue of the girls.
The former President also disclosed that Cameron refused to offer to help even after he asked.
Nigerians Knew Of Your Negligence
However, the ruling party in a statement signed on Saturday by its spokesman Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party said Jonathan should not have responded because Nigerians knew of his negligence.
“Denying or arguing against the truth is not going to change anything at this stage. Nigerians already know the story of Jonathan’s habitual negligence to matters of state,” he said.
“The Chibok schoolgirl’s abduction and his ‘sleeping behind the wheel’ is not a story to deny as it is already part of our national history.”
Issa-Onilu said Jonathan should take responsibility instead of blaming Cameron.
Issa-Onilu said, “What is important now is Jonathan explaining to the families of the abducted schoolgirls why as president he did nothing for two weeks after the Chibok abduction and still refuses to take responsibility for the tragedy up till now — except he continues to blame the Chibok abductions and other failings of his administration on the so-called grand conspiracy against him.”
“The current administration’s reactions and actions after the similar and unfortunate Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapping is a pointer to how a responsive government should act.
“That Jonathan government was corrupt was half of the story. The full story is that corruption hallmarked the successive 16 years administrations under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). It is shameful that anyone is even defending it.
“Corruption is the PDP’s political ideology. This fact is already cast in stone. Nigerians do not need Cameron or anyone else to tell us how corrupt and ineffectual the PDP era was.
“As a consequence, Nigerians voted out the PDP administration in 2015 and elected the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration to clear the mess the 16-year PDP administration left the country.”
