Doyin Okupe has analysed the major mistakes made by the leadership of the opposition party during the electioneering campaign that ushered in massive defeats.
Doyin Okupe, a former spokesperson to Goodluck Jonathan, a former Nigerian president has outlined the errors his boss and their political party made before the 2015 election.
Okupe who was reacting to claims that candidacy of Jonathan was in error stated that the decision to pick his ex-boss was in order but noted that Prof. Attahiru Jega, former INEC chairman should have been sacked because of his political leaning.
“If any error was made, it was firstly the failure of the PDP administration to sack the unfair and compromised electoral Officer who was allowed to conduct the election in spite of his obvious and profuse partisanship,”
Okupe said on Facebook.
“The impression created in the media recently that the candidacy of Goodluck Jonathan was an error is itself a grand fallacy which totally undermined the whole truth about the sanctity and correctness of the wisdom of the PDP National Executive committee which made and ratified that decision.
“All over the world when an incumbent signifies intention for a second term it is customary that the established machinery of the party wholly backs and gratifies such intentions,” he added.
