The All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders Council in Bayelsa State, on Sunday, berated former President Goodluck Jonathan over his comment that he planned to relocate his mother to Abuja if the opposition party had won the state governorship election conducted on November 11.
The APC elders said Jonathan chose to forget that the people of Bayelsa had been in economic and physical violence in the last three years of the PDP government.
“On the issue of violence, Jonathan remembers things differently. Bayelsans have faced both physical and economic violence in the state than at any other time during the last three years. It’s in the news, we the APC campaigned under a hail of violence.
However, the APC elders council strongly condemned the comment in a statement issued on Sunday, signed by its secretary, Clarkson Ayebaepreye, and described the former president as someone facing “political midlife crises”.
The statement said, “We do not know how low Jonathan can still go in his quest to satisfy his paymasters which, sadly, as a former President, were to rightly be his subordinates. Every now and then he is at Creek Haven jotting orders from Diri. No former President has reduced himself to such standards.
