Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan said that his main priority right now is to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Power (PDP) regains the presidency in 2019.
He stated this on Tuesday while receiving Chief Olabode George, an aspirant for the position of the party’s chairmanship and a former deputy national chairman of the party, at his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.
“Whether I like it or not, I must take responsibility for the defeat because I led the party to the election. The only thing that will make me sleep well is to ensure that PDP comes back to power.”
He added that he was working with other party stakeholders to ensure that the PDP is well organized to achieve this purpose though he preferred to work from the back seat.
Ex-President Jonathan also said that the party must take the right steps in the right direction to regain the confidence of the electorate, to avoid the mistakes of the past.
