- The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked former president Goodluck Jonathan to ask God and Nigerians for forgiveness
- An APC chieftain said the former president should learn to keep quiet
- Abayomi Adesanya said Jonathan should desist from commenting on challenges faced by Nigerians
The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, October 21, urged the former president Goodluck Jonathan to beg God and Nigerians for forgiveness over for his activities during his tenure as president of Nigeria.
The Ondo state chapter of the APC said the former president should learn to keep quiet rather than commenting on issues and challenges currently faced by Nigerians.
Reacting to a statement by the spokesperson to the former president, Reno Omokiri, the APC said Jonathan is yet to recover from the shock of his defeat in the last election.
The party's Ondo chapter spokesperson Abayomi Adesanya said: “For the avoidance of doubt and for clarification that is known to the public though, Jonathan plunged Nigeria into this present quagmire of unprecedented corruption and economic crisis.
“If I were Jonathan, I would keep quiet and beg for forgiveness from Nigerians and God, rather than making uncomplimentary comments about the present government.”
NAIJ.com earlier reported that Jonathan had said that the APC employs hi-tech propaganda to cover up its misrules.
The former president also said the Peoples Democratic Party performed better than the APC when its was in power for 16 years.
He said the what the PDP need to secure its victory during the presidential election in 2019 is a competent national chairman who would champion the party's agenda.
