PDP chieftain, has named outgoing First Lady, Patience Jonathan as one of the reasons why the party suffered a heavy defeat in the recently-concluded elections.The Bayelsa State publicity secretary of the party, Osom Makbere, says President Goodluck Jonathan lost the March 28 presidential election due to international and domestic conspiracies as well as the overbearing attitude of the First Lady.Makbere said, “History has stated that no failure, defeat orloss is a product of a single factor. Jonathan’s loss could be blamed on a multiplicity of interwoven causes.“Jonathan was a victim and target of international cum domestic esoteric codes and conspiracies. On the international level, the passage of the anti-gay legislation led to criticisms and face-off with the US, and the West.”“The strides made in the economic sphere, especially domestic rice promotion, calculated by the Jonathan administration to flip economic growth, and boost import substitution, also negatively alerted the West.”“The shift to China for our railway transformation, and recently, the migration to Russia for arms and ammunition to quelling the insurgency also signalled to the West that Jonathan had started constituting a self-reliant and dependent nation-state, a feat seen too tallby the US and their allies in the West.”“The aforesaid international factors found room to flourish given the obstinacy and impudence on the part of Mrs. Jonathan. The end result of her personal ambition to plant ‘self-made’ governors triggered face-offs with some governors.”Speaking further, Makbere stated that the All Progressives Congress will perform worse than the PDP at the centre.“I can tell you that this APC will be worse than the PDP as there is already imminent fear of implosion. In Kano, for instance, the APC got all 40 constituencies. This meant that none of the PDP candidates were popular enough to emerge but, the PDP maintained their calm and stoicism.”“We do not know what the APC wants. Whenever they win, the PDP congratulates them, but whenever the PDP wins, the APC would induce the election observers and the electoral officers to call for a re-run or cancellation. That is the zenith of desperation.”
