“I Won’t Sleep Well Until PDP Returns To Power In 2019” – Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the only thing that can make him sleep well is if his party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) returns to power in 2019.

Jonathan and PDP were on the losing end as the All Progressives Congress (APC) ended the 16-year reign of the PDP in 2015.

Taking responsibility for the poor performance of the party in that election, Jonathan said his focus now is to take the PDP to its former position.

He spoke when he received Bode George, a chairmanship aspirant of the PDP, at his Otuoke residence in Bayelsa state.

“Whether I like it or not, I must take responsibility for the defeat because I led the party to the election,” the media team of George quoted Jonathan as saying.

“My priority now is how to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party regains the presidency in 2019… The only thing that will make me sleep well is to ensure that the PDP comes back to power.”

The former president said he was working with other stakeholders to ensure that the party was well organised to take back power.
