Election: Niger governor, Aliyu, blames Jonathan for PDP’s downfall

Babangida Aliyu
The immediate past governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu

The Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, on Friday attributed the defeat of his party, Peoples Democratic Party, in the presidential election and governorship elections in some state to President Goodluck Jonathan’s refusal to honour a single term pact allegedly reached by its leaders.

The governor spoke in Minna at a convocation lecture of the Federal University of Technology where he was the guest of honour.

The lecture was titled, The Role of Law in the Enhancement of Socio-Economic Growth of the Nation.

Mr. Aliyu, who also lost the May 28 senatorial election to represent Niger East Senatorial District, said he and some of the party’s leaders saw the defeat coming.

“Many of us saw it coming,” he said. “When I reminded us (that President Goodluck Jonathan had agreed to run for one term), they nearly crucified me. When I led the G7 (group of seven aggrieved PDP governors), they did not do what we wanted them to do until five members left and they did what we asked them to do.”

While facing Mr. Jonathan’s political adviser, Rufai Alkali, who also attended the ceremony, Mr. Aliyu recounted how he was nearly crucified two years ago when he spoke about the one-term agreement on a programme on Liberty Radio, Kaduna.

“I recall also that when APC (All Progressives Congress) came on board (emerged as a political party), I was the first person to say I was very happy now, we have a strong party to put PDP on its toes and many people were asking, ‘Are you really a member?’” Mr. Aliyu recounted.

“Up until the last elections, the allegation against me had always been that I was a supporter of APC; and now, you have seen the results.”

The governor also said there could be other reasons for PDP’s poor outing during the polls, among which was the desire by Nigerians to have a change.

“Nigerians wanted a change and Nigerians got the change,” Mr. Alkali said. “You will have many reasons. One, PDP has been around for 16 years and there is no way you will be around for 16 years and you will not make mistakes.

“So, there are many reasons that will be put together and we will be able to understand and guide people.”

Mr. Aliyu also said corruption does not only mean stealing of money but also engaging in malpractices.

He asked Nigerians to refrain from what could destroy the country’s economy.

  • Maitama Tambari

    You have got the first point right but there was a major one linked to this which President JONATHAN disputed and refuted its existence. Rotational Zoning of Presidency. This was a singlet clause that attracted minorities Nigerians into the PDP in 1999.. President JONATHAN killed it and repudiate its existence and in 2011 agreed again to one term, this also was repudiated by President JONATHAN. The massive stealing from 2011 to 2015 put a seal on PDP survival.

  • Findsems

    Best comment from a pdp member. This is a very neutral statement Nigerians needed change

  • Mamman Bako

    This man wan defect o! This sounds like a prelude statement before defection.

    • Jika

      I think so too.However,I will advise that all the PDP guys should STOP thinking about DEFECTION.Rather,they
      they should START thinking about REFLECTION as to what led them to this sorry past.Per chance,they may be able to come out with a more FOCUSSED party that should serve as a viable opposition inorder to consolidate our democracy.Just my two cents!!!!

    • Venice

      they are all jobless job seeking parasites – APC (Associated Parasitic Congress)

      • Jack

        THATS WHY WE WILL BE RULING NIGERIA FROM MAY WHILE ALL THE CREEK MONKEYS GOES DOWN UNDER THE WATER. NO MATTER WHAT YOU CALL US ,IT DOESNT MATTER, YALL ARE IRRELEVANT NIGERIANS, SO SAY WHATEVER, IT HOLDS NO WATER!

  • PARASITES_in_Power

    Shut up for there!. How many terms did Buhari sign for you now? One or two? Who has ever signed one term or agreed one term? Nonsense & stuuuuupid talk! Complete nonsense!

    Something must be seriously wrong with this small eyed Governor. Even with your very very small eyes you cannot see that Jonathan, despite the mischief of INEC via its so called card reader, has 12.7m votes against the manipulated 15m combined votes of Buhari & Shekau.
    So, a candidate with 12.7m votes should have stepped down and not contested? Stepped down for who? And why? Aliyu should see a psychiatrist without delay before his case worsens.

    If uneducated illiterate Buhari who has failed 4 times before is allowed to contest why not someone who contested and won only one time before? This statement by Aliyu is very provocative and one would have expected that anyone from a parasitic region would be cautious and courteous in making utterances that relate to the economic block of Nigeria. Be careful. This is not Ahmadu Bellow’s 1964.

    • Jack

      YOURE A KID FROM YOUR COMMENT HERE AND I BELIEVE YOU PROBABLY WASNT BORN WHEN BUHARI RULED NIGERIA. IF BUHARI WAS AN ILLITERATE THEN WHATS GEJ DOING WITH THE GENERALS IN THE ARMY TODAY? BUHARI WAS A FORMER HEAD OF STATE AND IT TAKES IMBECILES LIKE YOU TO KNOW THAT HES AN ILLITERATE WHILE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ARE ALL FAVOURING HIM. GO BACK TO THE CREEK AND GET A JOB YOU CREEK MONKEY, THE AMNESTY MONEY IS OVER, GET A JOB! JONA HAS BEEN DEFEATED AND HE WILL NEVER BE BACK AGAIN INFACT NOBODY FROM NIGER DELTA WILL RULE NIGERIA EVER AGAIN! WHAT A JERK!

    • Paul

      Well said. Nothing more to add.

    • dareolu1

      Yeah! 12.7 million fake votes after re inflation of figures from the South East and tying down of collation officers from the North so that they wouldn’t come to declare results early while the continued to inflate figures for him, at least the whole truth is now out there for the world to see, his true figure is definitely way less than 10 million, but the rest they say is history, time to move on…

    • Tonnero

      More stoopidity. This is how you people caused Jonathan to lose his supporters and split his party in two. By behaving like bulls in a china shop. That is not how politics works. You manage conflicting interests rather than ignoring them or thinking you can ride rough-shod over them. Good luck with that attitude.

    • Samadani

      Na d pikin wen dem born throway booted clueless Jonah out. Please go kill Urself. Mimi dey smell.

  • Haruna Suleiman

    Shut up Prof Rufai Alkali, if you don’t have anything good to say just go to sleep, that is more better for all of us. What happened in sixteen years of PDP wasn’t a mistake. It was a deliberate act of corruption and massive thievery. The monies stolen by you people did it just appear into your pockets & bank accounts by mistakes. If it did then return these monies. What destroyed the country’s economy is stealing and that’s what you’ve done.

  • Mr. Abdin

    It is already too late ogah.

  • Chiotu Nnamdi

    This man is very inconsistent.The next move is to change camp ,while The G5 left he reneged.

  • Adoki Achine

    This Aliyu is a big fraud. Look at what he is saying: “They did not do what we wanted them to do until five members left and they did what we asked them to do.” So why not mention that thing that you asked them to do that they did? This man is simply trying to justify why he betrayed his colleagues after they all agreed to leave PDP together. Aliyu is not only a betrayer but a hypocrite and liar. He thinks he is talking to little children.

    • Tonnero

      Oh give it a rest with this betrayal thing. Jonathan that promised to do one term and refused to leave is what? A saint? Zik said in politics, there are no permanent enemies only permanent interests. Why do you expect them to support you when you are not protecting their interests? And we all know the “thing” he is referring to. They asked for the removal of Bamanga Tukur. Jonathan had been using Tukur to alienate them and bend the rules so that he (Jonathan) would get an automatic ticket. Tukur was high handed and issued queries to governors for not responding to his calls quickly enough. He was bent on forcing his son on the people of Adamawa state as governor which is why Murtala Nyako was his enemy. After the governors left, he removed Tukur and put Muazu there. Do your research my friend.

    • yahayaomaye

      He made a u-turn and supported Jonathan because Jonathan promised to support him in 2019 to be president. Aliyu has finished himself politically in Nigeria. His people are so disappointed in him and they refused to give him mandate to represent them at the senate, shame on him

  • msadah

    Why President Jonathan is annoying me

    What is even annoying me is the everyday talk by Jonathan’s government
    of TRANSITION COMMITTEE. We elected Jonathan for four years to run
    Nigeria properly for the good and happiness of the people. We did not elect
    Jonathan for 3 years 10 months. It is irresponsible to devote the last two (2)
    months to a bogus TRANSITION PROGRAM. He must put the election behind
    and keep governing the country properly in line with his unexpired mandate!

    • burning spear

      when was jonathan sworn -in as president–his mandate will expire on the 29th of May——-So he can set up whatever committee that he thinks will help him hand-over–to Obama in buhari

      • Samadani

        He has implemented all his manifestoe. What is left is the transition, so no qualms.

  • Otile

    Jonathan caused his own downfall by surrounding himself with Fulani Yoruba saboteurs and traitors. There is no way you can survive making your enemy your gatekeeper.

    • Tonnero

      “Surrounded himself with Fulani Yoruba saboteurs”. Like Mama Peace (half Igbo), Pius Anyim (Igbo), Stella Oduah (Igbo), Diezani (married to Igbo), Iweala (delta Igbo). Even GEJ is reported to have some Igbo blood. Or is it Tompolo, Minimah, Asari Dokubo, Edwin Clark, Orubebe, Kuku or Akpabio? The only Yorubas or Hausas in his administration were hewers of wood and drawers of water (like Abati, Okupe and Muazu). Admit it.

      This was your administration and you mismanaged it badly. You made Jonathan alienate most of the people that voted for him in 2011 through your bad advice, your massive corruption and your abuse of other groups like you are doing right now. It seems that whenever you guys get power, you alienate everyone that is not from your group. When Zik took NCNC over from a Yoruba man, it suddenly turned to an Igbo party. Now that you guys are centre stage, the “largest political party in Africa” has been reduced to an Igbo party. You and you only were responsible for mismanaging Jonathan’s 2011 success. We will not let you get away with your usual practice of blaming others for the mistakes that you made.

      • Malam B

        No Jonathan fails because of his ignorance, how do you expect Nigerian to continue voting for a person that kills 500,000 Nigerians in North in his 6 years terms in office, a person that displaced 2.5million Nigerians from their towns and villages, a person that destroyed private and government properties worth 6trillion Naira in north-east, a person that looted all the country’s reserves including Excess crude account, a person that steel 1.5 million barrels of petroleum every day, a person that removes fuel subsidy, a person that divides Nigeria into ethnic and religious groups, a person that equipped militants with modern sophisticated weapons, a person that fails to crush book haram in 6 years. NIGERIANS ARE NOW ABOVE YOUR EXPECTATION.

    • Guguru

      Otile,

      Why all the whining and complaints? Are you struggling to find a new job now that Jonathan has stopped the pay checks for you overzealous bloggers? LOL.

  • burning spear

    ALIYU–MUST BE TOLD THE TRUTH–He is a bloody liar———Jonathan did no lose BECAUSE OF THE ONE TERM RUBBISH————–but because of the underground work that the Fulani traitors in PDP carried out against him-5 Fulanis governors left the party—and teamed up with the Apes in APC———————–what would have happened if those Fulanis had stayed behind in PDP—-?-Not one Fulani leader worked for Jonathan–From Dasuki to Gusau——————Muazu———————-including Aliyu himself————who heated the polity for the Apes in APC———the fulanis and Yorubas were all traitors—Buhari swore he will do just one term–Let us see how that works-after his first term in office– Obasanjo was alleged to have signed a pact with the Fulanis to do just one term–according to Atiku—That was why atiku fell out with obj——Again why did the refusal of Obj to do only one term- not affect his victory at the polls–in 2003-?—–The Fulani are traitors like their Yoruba counter-parts——–Jonathan saw himself as a Nigerian—but the Fulanis that the Ijaws wasted over 45 yrs of their lives with–viewed him as an Ijaw man–The struggle to remove Jonathan started from day when Yara Adua died——-Let us now see how the Fulanis and the Yoruba traitors will work–in aso rock–since Nigeria is now owned by them–via the help of Obama

    • Tonnero

      You have started with your legendary confused thought process again. On this post, you say Jonathan lost because of Fulani “traitors” aligning with APC. In the post before this one, you suggest he did not lose but that the USA and UK “installed” Buhari. You may very well be suffering some form of Post traumatic stress disorder given the ass-whooping Jonathan got. Without the massive rigging in the SS and SE, it would have been even worse. You may need a break to clear your head so we will understand if you disappear from this forum for a while. Sorry o.

  • burning spear

    buhari was installed by the USA and UK governments-and not by Nigerians-period–

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      It’s more like GEJ appeasing the north sheepishly and surrounding himself with detractors working for regional and foreign interests. GEJ believed in the old institutional political appeasement of elitist interest groups instead of direct appeasement of population blocks.

      GEJ’s appeasement politics only works in an environment where elections are rigged so it was a paradox for him to conduct free and fair elections with such a strategy,he was a poor strategist !!

      • Guguru

        Tawanda,

        My good friend, it is good to hear from you again. I suspect you were out for a while to weep and wail over Jonathan’s decisive loss to Buhari, and perhaps to also find a new job since the blogging pay master of the PDP is now broke. How is your new job these days? How are you handling your buyer’s remorse so far. Welcome back my good friend. Now I have someone to pound intellectually and relentlessly in the coming weeks. LOL.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          I was away to vote and help in ground game. After the results I was busy organising the most formidable cyber political opposition which will soon be unleashed in order to protect our democracy and hold the Buhari administration responsible.

          • Guguru

            Tawanda,

            You are now the sentinel and protector of Nigeria’s democracy? LOL. I guess i should refer to you as Super Tawanda, right? Do you fly with a cape and does your eyes shoot out laser beams? LOL.

    • Rommel

      A government that inherited $62 billion in forex reserve,and witnessed the longest oil boom in history and yet made no savings and could not render account for the sales of hydrocarbons and refused to invest in other sectors of the economy,depleted the forex reserve by more than 50% and ran up debts which previous governments had exited the country from,how would you describe such a government?

      • Tonnero

        You dey answer them? From every single angle: economic management, security, infrastructure, national cohesion, corruption etc, these guys failed woefully.

    • Abdul

      So, USA and UK manufactured 15million votes for Buhari? pls go and sleep i beg.

  • Arewabetter

    Haba Mr. Rufai Alkali! Are you calling what PDP did for 16 years a mistake? How can PDP stalwarts make mistakes year after year for more than 16 years. By the way, A MISTAKE IS AN ACCIDENT, BUT CHEATING AND LYING ARE NOT MISTAKES. THEY ARE INTENTIONAL CHOICES.

    • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

      can you read at all?
      He said there is no way a political party can hold power for 16 years and not make any mistake.
      He did not say PDP made mistakes year after year after year for 16 years.

      • Arewabetter

        If the staunch members of PDP had not made mistakes and committed blunders years after years for a total period of more than 16 years, Nigeria and Nigerians wouldn’t have found themselves in the present trouble, shit and mess. Unfortunately, all the positive attributes of Nigeria and Nigerians just vanished, disappeared and got destroyed with the emergence of PDP, which has been ruling Nigeria for more than 16 years. Fortunately, Nigerians have ended up that 16 years of non-productivity, 16 years of impunity, 16 years of modern slavery, 16 years of the increase in the number of ALMAJIRIS, 16 years of nepotism, embezzlement, stealing, thievery and robbing Nigeria of its resources and treasures. The unproductive era for Nigeria’s well-wishers is over, so PDP propagandists, especially the THING called kayode and probably YOU should go and address your non-productivity only to YOURSELVES.

    BABANGIDA ALIYU IS A TRAITOR OF THE HIGHEST ORDER. GOD ALMIGHTY WILL SURELY PUNISH HIM AND HIS NORTHERN BROTHERHOOD, THEIR YORUBA COLLABORATORS AND THE TWO BLACK SHEEP IN RIVERS AND IMO STATES (AMAECHI AND OKOROCHA) FOR THEIR MISCHIEF. BABANGIDA WORKED FOR THE APC ALL OF THE TIME AND THIS EXPLAINS THE REASON WHY AS PDP GOVERNOR AND A SENATORIAL ASPIRANT OF THAT PARTY, THERE WAS NONE OF JONATHAN OR PDP CAMPAIGN POSTER ANYWHERE IN NIGER STATE. NIGER STATE HAS BEEN KNOWN AND FAMOUS FOR PRODUCING VERY WICKED LEADERS IN THE PAST AND THIS BABANGIDA IS NOT DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER BABANGIDA WHO ANNULED ONE OF THE FREEST ELECTIONS IN THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA. GOD WILL SURELY PAY HIM BACK.

    • Abdul

      Why are you cursing northerners and yoruba? the same people voted for your brother in 2011. The question you should be asking is what went wrong. I hope you are not expecting Nigerians to still vote for PDP and Jonathan after their wanton looting of the nation;s treasury. MAYBE YOU THINK NIGERIANS ARE STUP*D to keep voting for PDP while they keep taking us for granted.

      Please no body is a black sheep , dont forget that Okorocha did everything possible to convince the Igbo’s to join APC during the formation but they refused that Jonathan is their Brother.In addition , when Amechi was chased out of PDP by those that knows themselves, what did you expect him to do ? go begging . My brother wake up.Courage is the game.

  • femi olagunju

    Jonathan does not have a truthful friend, adviser, or associate.
    He is surrounded by official thieves who hung on his coat-tails.
    A honest person would have stepped on the brakes since 2012.
    It was from January 2012 that Jonathan dozed off on the wheels.

    • Public Records

      “With his trademark trite commentary, President Jonathan’s approach to
      issues is at best simplistic. Where quick thinking is needed to be deployed,
      backed by the resources available to his offices as president and
      commander-in-chief, he adopts a wait-and-see attitude.

      In the meantime, the bleeding remains. And when President Jonathan
      eventually rises to act, he institutes some weak idea that only serves as a
      temporary solution. There is rarely any show of brilliance in these decisions
      anyways. At best, again, his decisions and actions are mere shots in the dark.

      Little research is done to ascertain the viability or effectiveness of his actions,
      beyond some misguided supplication to whatever deity he and his supporters serve,
      that it works. It is why most of the decisions made by Jonathan’s government often
      result in little successes – if any”.

  • McAlfred Uta

    Governor Aliyu may yet be a very honest politician indeed if he ends up not defecting to APC. These comments are highly objective and reflect part of why PDP failed. The only area he did not talk about was absence of primaries and the handing over of the party structure to Governors which led to PDP losses in Ondo, Benue, Plateau, Kogi, and possibly Abia. Those who will remain in PDP and give viable opposition are the true people’s politicians. As for APC they are now facing implosion if they continue to accept PDP defectors. Imagine Vincent Ogbulafor who loudly mouthed PDP’s 60 years tenure now seeking to be in APC. May God help Nigeria.

  • burning spear

    @Uta stop those unthinking comments————if u are talking to some imbeciles in the Fulani North u can lie your way into them with your tales by moonlight stories–Aliyu is the greatest liar on mother earth——–a mental case———-Did MKO the Winner of the June 12 election also renegade ON his promise to hand over power to the Fulanis b4 himself and his wife Kudirat were murdered by the Fulanis? The Fulanis equally made the same assertions when Obasanjo was released from Jail that he signed an agreement with atiku- to do just one term———That was what resulted in the fight between Atiku and Obasanjo—-Today it was Obj who used his connection with the CIA and MI5 to rig elections for Buhari——-When Yara Adua died—–did the Fulanis ever reach a pact with Jonathan to do just one year————? B4 they did all within their reach to frustrate him out of power–In Ghana when Prof Mills died–the transition was smooth–cause they followed the provisions in the constitution–Not in Nigeria————Jonathan was sold cheap to the USA and UK–as the most corrupt President by the Fulanis and Yorubas most of whom work for the CIA————————

      IS Jonathan MORE CORRUPT THAN OBJ AND TINUBU WHO WITH ATIKU OWN THWE DOWN STREAM SECTOR OF THE OIL INDUSTRY-?—————-wHICH COUNTRY IN THE WORLD DO WE HAVE LECTED LEADERS SWEARING TO DO JUST ONE TERM_-If Fulanis like Aliyu had given thought to the zone that Jonathan hails from in the Niger delta–was it right for them to have even contemplated such a satanic idea——–? Against the backdrop of the fact that the Nation state of Nigeria depends on the oil resources of the SS————ADDED TO THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE NEVER HAD A GO AT THE PRESIDENCY B4———aLIYU NEEDS TO VISIT–A MENTAL HOSPITAL–HE AS A FULANI IS NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE GOVERNOR OF NIGER STATE–ITS GREED THAT TOOK HIM THERE—

      • Ed

        The Real Niger Delta interest were of no concern of Jonathan or of yours either. When ever reality get to sink in your deprived brain, you’ll know I’m right.
        President Jonathan, had spent 6 good years as the President of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria. Just for your information the Niger Delta experienced more physical development under any of the past leaders of the nation than under Jonathan.
        Only the corruption infested warlords did much better under Jonathan.
        Second point. Niger Delta is much more than the Ijaw warlords personal interest. Once your get that in your brain, you’re going to be able to see the world as it is, not as you simply wish the world is.
        Yoruba’s starting with OBJ made Jonathan president, assisted by the Hausa, Fulanis Igbo’s and every other tribes in Nigeria..
        That was before Jonathan allowed the selfishness of people with their own wicked agenda took total control of his administration. Niger Delta people should call all the tribe and group together and formulate a clear understanding of what’s in the best interest of the Niger Delta.
        Young mind should never be excluded in the formation of the Niger Delta agenda.
        Burning Spear you’re doing a great disservice to the interest of Niger Delta on a daily bases.

  • Malam B

    The biggest threat to national development are Igbos. Even the 1st rebel leader in the history of Nigeria Ojukwu say this. He said that: ” If Igbo peoples are taken to Us or Uk or any developed country, they will destroy it in less than a decade, surely they are the most corrupt peoples in the world” Even their name shows that they are notoriously bad peoples. (I+G+B+O) I=Ignorants, G= Gorllas, B= Bastards, O= Oil thieves. Jonathan is the first and the last president from south-south and south-east. Presidency is the property of only North and South-West people. Igbo and Niger delta peoples should be slaves, or caged in a zoo.

    • citizenka

      What has this story got to do with Igbos?

  • 1MASK01

    Says the guy who manipulated his own state Governor ship primaries. it was Gov Aliyu’s own desire to force his candidate during the primaries that led to the defection of His deputy and some prominent members. those who choose to stay behind then worked against the candidate. the same thing happened in Plateau state. So many factors worked against the PDP not only from the presidency.

  • Malam B

    citizenka pls go through this comment section you will know why igbos are the greatest calamity to the unity of this country, We need your help from the evil of igbo our lord jesus,
