Jonathan Slams Buhari Over NASS Invasion, Reminds Nigerians Of His Democratic Achievements
Ex President GEJ today reposted one of his quotes from 2015 which described the All Progressives Congress as a party which had no regard for human rights or democracy .
The message was posted on Jonathan’ s official Facebook page while men of the Department of State Services laid siege to the National Assembly .
The post read in part:
“The choice before Nigerians in the coming election is simple : A choice between going forward and going backward ; between the new ways and the old ways ; between freedom and repression ; between a record of visible achievements and beneficial reforms and desperate power seekers with empty promises.”
The post elicited 683 comments and was shared nearly 2 , 000 times on Facebook within four hours.
A large number of Jonathan’ s 2 . 2 million followers hailed the former President for being a Democrat during his six years in office .
However , a few others berated Jonathan, reminding him of how under his watch in 2014 , members of the House of Representatives were barred from gaining entry into the green chamber during a failed attempt to remove the then Speaker , Aminu Tambuwal and how several politicians looted Nigeria’s treasury dry under his watch.
It is a clear case of pot calling the kettle black.
