How Jonathan gave victory to Buhari, APC – Former PDP Chairman, Ogbulafor explains

Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, has blamed the party’s loss of the 2015 general elections on former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He stated that PDP would have won if Jonathan had supported a northern candidate.

“The person who caused the failure of PDP is Jonathan. PDP had internal democracy, a zoning pattern which worked for them for 16 years, and we agreed at a meeting that power would stay in the North for eight years before it returns to the South for another eight years,” Ogbulafor told Vanguard.

“You will not say Yar’Adua ruled for eight years; not even for four years, because he was sick. The best thing Jonathan would have done was to bring a Northerner and make him President and agree that when he finishes, power will come to the South and if it is him again, then he will contest.

“Doing that, the North will be happy; that was my feeling, and that was why I said that power is still in the North because we agreed eight years each for the two zones. So that is where the power tussle began and that was the downfall of PDP. When we refused to follow our guidelines, we derailed and there was no more internal democracy.

“When I said power would remain in the North, Jonathan did not like it and they made sure they unseated me. I left. That is when I knew that PDP was in for trouble, and that was when the diarrhoea started.

“But it has happened: same Katsina State where Yar’Adua is from. Immediately I left, Jonathan had five PDP chairmen in one year. It is unheard of and that is when the problem started, and it has continued to degenerate.

“When Tony Anenih, Chairman, Board of Trustees resigned, when Muazu resigned, I commended their guts and I said these men want PDP to survive because they quietly exited.

“I advised then that the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party should resign because they had led PDP to failure, but they were more interested in the money they were sharing; they failed to heed my advice and that led PDP to where we are today.”



  1. It could had been a disaster for Nigeria economy with all these 16 years of looting. If PDP is still government, no Nigerians will ever hear of these revelations of looting. Was Jonathan not aware of using helicopters and private jets to loot or he turn a blind eye or part of it? Shameful It’s left for him and others PDP members to judge and above all judgement of God from generation to generations for putting many Nigerian Students into mystery.

  2. what is this man vomiting from his big mouth, why can’t northerners wait until southerners complete their 8years. why must northern people dictate what is going to happen in a country that does not belong to only them. I’m not saying PDP should rule but I hate the statement that they should complete 8years before the south returns.
