I Can Rule Again If Nigerians Want Me Back – GEJ

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has given reason a politician could be called to come back to lead the people after losing an election.

Recall that Jonathan lost his second term bid to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

According to the former Nigerian leader, the way leaders are perceived while in office can play a major role in their political career.

Jonathan stated this on Wednesday when he met the representatives of political parties from The Gambia at the closing of a two-day consultative retreat for political parties.

He charged African leaders to always pay attention to the way the majority of perceive them and their policies while in office.

He said for this reason, even after they lose elections, they can be called back to rule again by popular demand.

“Whatever a leader is doing, he needs to understand the fact that the perception of his policies and decisions would be a critical factor to be considered because he is there for the people,” Dr. Jonathan said.

“A leader can be doing all the right things to be done for nation-building, but if the perception among the people does not match what he is doing, then he can never go very far in politics

  1. Constitutional provisions have barred Dr Good luck Jonathan from contesting for the position of President again. He has been sworn in as president twice. There are other more qualified Nigerians who could be President. He should learn to say no to the charlatans who want to mock him
