I’ll go happily if I’m not re-elected – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan assured Wednesday he will hand over power May 29 if he loses the forthcoming presidential polls billed for March 28.

Speaking on a televised interview with a panel of journalists, including a PREMIUM TIMES’ Editor, Ibanga Isine, Mr. Jonathan sought to dispel speculations that he will not surrender power should he lose the polls.

“Even in 2011, I said that I will conduct free and fair elections and if I lose, I will happily go home. As that time, no sitting African president had lost election. But within this period a number of sitting African presidents have lost elections,” Mr. Jonathan said. “But I said I wanted to create history to be the first African president that will lose election. But let the world know that the elections are free and fair.”

President Jonathan has been accused of plotting to scuttle the transition process should he be defeated by his closest rival, former military ruler, Muhammadu Buhari.

The speculations intensified in the last one week after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, postponed the elections earlier scheduled for February, amid claims Mr. Jonathan has vowed to rather hand over power to the military than Mr. Buhari, should he lose.

But speaking Wednesday, Mr. Jonathan said he believed the institution of the presidency and the Nigerian nation are too important to be weighed against the political fortunes of an individual.

“Anybody who holds this office and thinks that the office is more important that the nation, then that’s not quite fair,” the president said.

Should he voted out on March 28, Mr. Jonathan said he will stand down.

“So if as at that time I was ready to conduct free and fair election and if I lose I go, what about now that Nigerians have given me the opportunity to be here for four good years,” he said. “So if the elections are conducted and I lose, of course, we’ll inaugurate a new government. By saying if I lose I will not handover, those are the unnecessary insinuations.”

The president however did not specifically speak on whether he would be prepared to surrender power to Mr. Buhari if the former military ruler wins, a point at the centre of the controversy.

Amid concerns over the military’s role in the electoral process, after INEC blamed the security forces for the polls shift, the Nigerian defence headquarters on Wednesday said in a statement the military will not interrupt the democratic process.

Defence Spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, said neither the military nor any of its service chiefs will engage in any act that could pose a threat to Nigeria’s democracy.

Mr. Olukolade said Nigerians and its friends should be “reassured that the Nigerian Armed Forces believes strongly in the prospects of the country under a democratic rule and will continue to discharge its responsibility to support our democracy as constitutionally guaranteed”.

    “Anybody who holds this office and thinks that the office is more important that the nation, then that’s not quite fair,” – not quite fair huh? What a strong statement lol

    • Ibinabo Graham Douglas

      tunsj and co, cant you be constructive in your argument ? must you disrespect yourselves and others to make a point? whoever reads thru this chat will think your kids fighting over candy or maybe garri it depends.

  • terry

    This is a man know to say one and do the opposite the next day.He said he will base campaign on issues but till date the campaign has been the defamation of GMB and not on what holds for Nigeria.
    However preparing his mind for defeat will be good for his health come March 28.

    • Philip Gokir Musa

      he’s not Yoruba; hence his words would never change. His words shall always remain a bond!

    • SayNo2Tribalism

      The truth is GEJ has no option but to hand over. It is not a gift or favour. He must hand over.

  • arewethishopeless

    The Nigerian so-called military is such a joke. To allow this clown to bring years of excellence and tradition of honor to disrepute shows that they are nothing more than a band of thugs available for hire from the highest bidder.

    Do we no longer have men of honor in the military? What is worse is they are unable to cleanse themselves of this stigma and will rightly go down in history as the worst period of its existence. Even Chadian and Niger armies are now more worthy of our praise. I mean, countries are talking about winning in multiple theaters and they are hear shamelessly confirming they cannot deal will boko boys are elections at the same time. What rubbish …!

    • Lenz

      It is really sad. However, I will not apportion wholesale blame to the military as an institution. We have to accept that it is the current crop of military top brass that have brought shame to the military. There are many fine junior officers that, if given the chance, will be eager to restore pride and honor to that institution.

      • warry

        Are you talking of the Army that was paid to go and Lie on CNN that they were not given weapons to fight only for Shekau to discredit them? Truth is the Army has been divided and full of saboteurs and so many of them are being court marshaled. Sanity will prevail and Boko Haram will be defeated.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    A decent, refreshing, well-educated Jonathan was on view during the media chat. Different from the desperate, certificate forging, perjuring, fire-spitting APC animal of a presidential candidate.

    • terry

        Buhari is Boko Haram’s general and not the people’s general, please. He is illiterate and unexposed. He only had two stint in office as military head of state. So from where did he acquire the so called feat as a political leader?

    • Lenz

      What exactly is the point of your comment and how have you contributed to the discussion? Did you hear Jonathan attacking the APC presidential candidate ?

    • dave jacob

      GEJ is fake, feigning being urbane to get votes. He has failed!!!

  • Uzoma

    It’s good to know that one of the journalists at the presidential media chat wass from Premium Times, an outlet that is a priori hostile towards Jonathan’s ambition. So will Buhari go to the presidential debate or not, in spite of APC’s insinuations that it would be anchored by hostile journalists?

    • Tanimu

      Excellent! Don’t mind the pretenders. That slimy chameleon TundeMESS is so embarrassed he has been hiding under his sick pseudo names like ‘Tunsj’ and ‘endingnaija’ to throw his usual insults. I really wonder what sort of upbringing he had..if any?? Intense shame won’t let him use his name..after he kept bragging that GEJ will run from debating GMB. Now I hope he can see with his jaundiced eyes who will be debating D’banj Now??? Hahahahaha!

      *now I know for certain these APC e-zombies and their collaborators in PT are only bold behind the keyboard. The PT guy was a complete washout! I can’t say if he ws overwhelmed by the Aso rock environment or it ws just nerves..but he even seemed tongue tied. I even saw him try slipping a note to the anchor lady by his side..very UNPROFESSIONAL INDEED!
      What is on the front burner now is the ghost certificate of the Ex-Coupist. The shameful way his lawyers battled to delay the case thru unnecessary technicalities clearly shows a man with a lot to hide!
      #NoToDog&BaboonFights…hope APC know the decision of the court will be ‘SACROSANCT’!
      Ginger ooo…GINGER!

      Muhammadu Buhari Is the CHANGE Nigerian Need.
      by Joe Musa, Abuja.

      Time and Time, Nigerians have started to believe that Pa Muhammadu Buhari (73) is the CHANGE that people are asking for. To get this point down, these are the “13 Questions I Keep Asking Myself About BUHARI:

      1: Can someone that REFUSED to ATTEND OPUTA PANEL when
      invited talk about justice?

      2: Can someone whose statements are loaded with VIOLENCE assure peace?

      3: Can someone who promised he would ensure that SHARIA LAW gets to all part of the country tolerate people from other
      religion?

      4: Can someone that asked MUSLIMS TO VOTE ONLY MUSLIM
      be voted for by other religion?

      5: Can someone that put Shagari in HOUSE ARREST and DR Alex Ekwueme in PRISON be absolved of tribal sentiments?

      6: Can someone who used retroactive laws to KILL PEOPLE be
      trusted with our lives?

      7: Can someone who says FIGHTING TERRORISM is against
      his people be allowed to be in charge of this country?

      8: Can someone who executed 75% of PTF projects in the NORTH and distributed the remaining 25% among other regions when he was the PTF chairman be allowed to take charge of all
      projects in the country?

      9: Can someone who as a military head of state who knows he
      would be overthrown but COULD NOT DO ANYTHING because his deputy was not around be classified as courageous?

      10: Can someone who says ACN is corrupt but because of his
      presidential ambition now surrounds himself with ACN thieves be ABLE TO FIGHT CORRUPTION?

      11: Can someone who as head of PTF DID NOT KNOW how billions of Naira got missing be trusted with our entire wealth as president?

      12: Can someone who could not allow the economic of demand,
      supply and internal production factors to determine the prices of
      commodities but used SOLDIERS TO FORCE price control be able to handle present economic challenges?

      13: Can someone who did not allow his government be criticised and UNJUSTLY ARRESTED those who criticised his government be given that opportunity to lead again,etc?

      Honestly, Buhari is NOT the RIGHT person. Don’t be blind. The
      change they shout could be negative as seen in some Northern African countries.
      ‪#‎VoteWisely‬.

      • IS.JESUS.CHRIST.A.CHRISTIAN

        1.CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME WHERE BUHARI KNELT DOWN BEFORE AN IMAM OF A MOSQUE VIOLATING THE SECULAR CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF NIGERIAN PRESIDENT AS GOODLOCK DID.?
        2. CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME WHERE BUHARI FOUGHT STATE GOVERNORS FOR NOT SPONSORING RELIGIOUS PILIGRIMAGE AS GOODLOCK DID?
        3. CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME WHERE BUHARI MADE IT AN OFFICIAL DUTY TO ADDRESS NATIONAL ISSUES FROM MOSQUES AND RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES AS GOODLOCK KEPT DOING FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS.?
        4. CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME WHETHER BUHARI TOLERATED CRIMINALS AND ASSIGNED TO THEM PORTFOLIOS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS AND OPENED UP THE NATIONAL TREASURY FOR THEM TO AMASS AND ACUMULATE WARFARE ARMS AS JONATHAN DID AND CONTINUE DOING.
        5. CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME ANY SACRED COW THAT USUALLY UNTOUCHABLE BUT GOODLOCK IN HIS CONSTITUTIONAL DUTIES APPLIED APPROPRIATE LAWS TO CORRECT IT WHEN IT IS ALL WRONG.?
        VOTING GOODLOCK JONOTHING IS A SUICIDE FOR TRUE PATRIOTIC NIGERIANS FROM THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH WEST WITH SOME PARTS OF THE SOUTH SOUTH AND SOUTH EAST.
        FINALLY IT IS ONLY ENEMIES WITHIN BIAFRANS TERRORIST CREEK MILITIAS THAT VOTE FOR GOODLOCK JONOTHING. AND THESE CRIMINALS CAN NEVER MAKE HIM A VOTE WINNER IN NIGERIA.

  • boliatepa

    Nigerians, in case you haven’t figured it out already, there is no election. This is a distraction. I am actually laughing at the trick. NO ELECTION in March or in 2015. I told friends a few days ago, the Jonathan administration has plagiarized the Babangida playbook. I know that playbook like the back of my hand. Expect intriguing allegations against the opposition in the coming days. By the middle of March, Jonathan will tell the world what he plans to do, one of which, again, is not to allow an election. Remember, they always come up with some cock and bull story, which rationally-tuned people can’t buy. Be ready, be worried and be prepared to fight. We will devote the next two years to fighting these wicked forces; but as MKO Abiola once said, “you can’t clap with one hand.” You, you and you have to think about what your role will be in the movement.

    Again, Jonathan will abort the elections, and you must decide what you have to do. The allegation that INEC is not ready is the main message that Jonathan needed to convey. That is the plot. More annoying and irritating claims will be made in the coming weeks. You have to read carefully. These are steps being taken to facilitate a specific outcome.

    • Kitunde

      I have said the same…..

  • Why don’t you do your country a favor and just leave now? Let a man of action take charge. All Jonathan seems to do is smile and wave and make empty promises and tell one lie after another

    • Peter

      To think like that means you are backward. This your necked show of outright backwardness is alarming. For you to believe that a 73-year old former dictator and coup plotter is your ideal leader, then you need to have your head diagnosed for an incurable disease.

    Very impressive media chat. The decorum devoid of abuse or violent speech is very much appreciated by all well meaning Nigerians. Mr President has shown that he has a steady hand and steady mind despite all the propaganda and abuse and violence by his opposers. God’s purpose will stand in Nigeria. There will be indeed a triumph of good over evil. Light over darkness.

  • JamesAdebayo

    I don’t doubt a second GEJ would handover the reign of powers to GMB if he were to be elected, but do you really want an ex-dictator who had to be ousted by his own men when he was in charge of the country to be our next President? I don’t reckon he would have any beneficial impact at all for the country.

    • SO

      Of course most people would ordinarily not want an ex-dictator to lead the country. However they have been left without choice because of the ineptitude of Jonathan and his inability to deal with corruption in his government. If corruption is “ole” as he claimed several times in the media chat, why did he not deal with those clear cases? A lot of people voted for him in 2011 and they hinged their hope on him being the first man out of the “establishment” be become Nigeria’s president but he mismanaged and betrayed their trust. What a lost opportunity!

  • Clarion Diallo

    Somewhere down the history of our country, the name of Jonathan Goodluck will be remembered for all the work he put into preserving Democracy for our country.

You guys are like goat when beaten,will go back to same person that just beat it,like a dog eating its vomit,well naija forever as far all recent occurrences Mr. Goodluck Jonathan is a fraud and he has realised he will lose a fairly conducted election in Nigeria,GEJ just emphasising his impending defeat to his supporters as a sly way to prepare them for eventuality of a GMB win on March 28th,2015. It will be foolhardy for GEJ to sit tight after losing. It will be too hot for GEJ to handle,it will be rougher than the attendant problwms that percolate and fester in Nigeria after thw annulment of june 12th,1993 elections. l hope you guys are not living on an isolated island. The overwhelmed Nigerian masses at the receiving end of the PDP suffer head and GEJ fraudulent style of easy and steady stealing no rock boat are tired,thw Nigerian masses verdict is that robbery by government can not continue,the masses are tired hence the call for progressive change in person of incoming Nigerian President Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

    That’s my president. Very dedicated and committed to the tenents of democracy. Buhari scuttled democracy and must pay dearly for it.

    • Ogbonta

      Hide your face in shame my friend

    If there is any election in the first place.But i pity Mr President, why? He probably may have won again but he dealt with too many issues perfunctorily.
    What nailed him is this tacit support for corrruption,alams, pension scam etc. Forget about the gaffes, just imagine, his wife a permanent secretary in far flung place from where she resides and weilds power? That is so bad. And all the shouts about airports, trains and fertilizers are no big deal, even a local goverment chairman can achieve without all the powers a president has got. And his advisers,yes,they finished him off.The bottomline is that, he betrayed the the trust and support handed to him in 2011…Sad.

      So sad

    Believe this ……Believe anything. Everybody knows that gej and the cabal will do whatever it takes to cover the track of their loots.

  • emmanuel

    Oga GEJ not when the APC plan with Jega to rig you out materialises.

    In that case, the nation will pay a supreme price.

    Jonathan by all human & non human standards is a simple but noble man. Unlike Duncee, he declares categorically, that he will go if he loses.

    But one thing is certain, no military or ex-military or their relatives will ever lay their filthy hands on the wealth of the Niger Delta again. Those who declared and once believed that power could never move out of that cabal, however irate they’ve been by Jonathan’s breaking of that jinx, should accept that NEVER again will that hegemonic circle or clique be allowed back in the governance of modern day Nigeria if Nigeria survives beyond 2015.

    Enough is enough. Nigeria belongs to all …and MUST be run by those who are qualified, trained and experienced enough to do so and NOT on the basis of your ethnicity regardless of whether such persons failed ordinary basis Arithmetic in elementary school. The blind can not lead the sighted…It is even absurd that the part of Nigeria that prides itself in being educationally disadvantaged and confirmed to be least developed in everything except terrorism, is the section of Nigeria that has produced 13 of 15 Presidents in 39 of 55 yrs. No wonder Nigeria is where it is. But NEVER will the hand of the clock be turned back again. We say NO to backwardness. No to mediocrity. No to serial failure. No to terrorism loving people. NO.NO.NO!!!

    For those idioooots who feel you must be Hausa or Yoruba to lead a Nigeria, they must be reminded one again, that there are more people in Port Harcourt just as is true for Delta State than the whole of Norway. The Ijaw speaking Nation in Nigeria which is in the neighbourhood of 25m million, is 4 times the population of Sierra Leone and 16 times the population of Estonia where your favourite Skype was invented. I suppose u got my gist!…I can be in a country than runs on my resources and then you technically make it impossible for me to lead. NO WAY!

    • progress

      Sharap dia, mumu like you, has Gej not been given opportunity to lead? He failed so deal with it as such and stop spreading lies.mtcheeeew

      • Etomi

  • taiwo

    Leaving President Jonathan and vote for Buhari is like to abandon the road and enter the bush. God forbid we enter the forest which we may not come out from for years.

    • Tunsj

      What is coming out of your mouth is nothing but trash. You failed to see the level of poverty in Nigeria.

      • taiwo

        yea there was no poverty before GEJ came to power,,,olodo

        • Tunsj

          I’m sure you are a puppet of Jonathan. Oloriburuku.

          • wovijide

          • taiwo

            focus on the facts of the argument and stop the namecalling,all these APC boys always spoiling for fight because of paucity of ideas

      • Ogbonta

        No my brother, he is reasoning with BUCAL Cavity

  • Mr. Abdin

    So he will accept defeat.

  • Dan Arewa

    Another blatant lie and deception from a bloody ‘SHOELESS’ liar. I will agree with you as much as I did when you said February 14 remains ‘SACROSANCT’.

    • dd

  • The only thing left for this administration is to conduct free and fair election and allow Nigerian vote to speak, anything else will annihilates GEJ for life. He needs a lot of prayers than ever.

    If Jonathan not re-elected, there will be war in Nigeria.
    – Godswill Akpabio

    I will attack the South West (The Yorubas) before proceeding to the north if Jonathan should lose the election.
    – Asari Dokunbo

    The South South will collapse Nigeria’s economy if Jonathan is not re-elected.
    – Jimi Agbaje

    Return Jonathan or else forget about one Nigeria.
    – Tompolo

    We would rather hand over to the military than give the Presidency to Buhari.
    – Doyin Okupe

    We will form an Interim Govt only if election was rigged.
