For me that is not even the major reason.Gej as the incumbent then had all it takes to overturn or manipulate the results with his federal might but he chose not to do so to allow peace reign.Dont you know that if Jega was sacked by jonathan then things would have favoured the then ruling party.But he decided not to do that for people not to die.So the koko here is that in the interest of peace He(JONATHAN) conceded to defeat.

You re saying he should have manipulated a victory by force....and you think he can succeed with that just as APC can not succeed in Port harcourt no matter how dirty they play

Jonathan is a man of peace that is why he has received tremenous awards and international recognision from across the globe.As for Apc in rivers state nothing for them because that state is already a pdp stronghold.Power to the people.

Mantu admitted that the All Progressives Congress, APC, emerged victorious during the last general election because Nigerians were tied of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Simple not bc tribalism or religion

A former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ibrahim Mantu has disclosed the reasons why former President Goodluck Jonathan was defeated at the 2015 Presidential election.
In an interview with Premium Times, the former lawmaker claimed that those who Jonathan worked with were responsible for his failure at the polls.

Mantu said, “Jonathan lost because he refused to work with people who know the game. Most of the people Jonathan worked with were mediocres and amateurs. At a point in time, he even left the party machinery and employed some consultants to work for him.”

Commenting on the role campaign groups played during the last Presidential election especially the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN, Mantu said, “There are many of them. They came to Eagle Square and said they have 75 million signatures.

He said, “Where were the 75 million people when we were voting? Politics is a grassroots game. When you don’t use your structure at the grassroots, you will lose. How many people watch television? Those that have don’t have light. So, when you say you are using television to campaign, you are wasting your time. Campaign is at the grassroots level.”

Mantu admitted that the All Progressives Congress, APC, emerged victorious during the last general election because Nigerians were tied of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He said, “People were already tired of PDP. PDP was suffering from hangover, fatigue. Sixteen years in power uninterrupted is not easy in a country like Nigeria. Then, PDP became over drunk with power. We were staggering. We missed our road. We were no longer respecting the people. Virtually everywhere, APC votes came from PDP members who were angry with the party.”

The ex-Deputy Senate President however noted that the current government should be given more time before being asked to give account of its stay in power.

“You see it is too early to assess because as far as I am concerned you need to give government time. It has not even spent up to one year out of four years. You must give the government at least two years. You can be saying negative things about this government now. Initially, there is always pain in starting anything,” Mantu stated

Mr mantu, Nigeria dont hav any business wit that our business is d change so call APC Promise us.

Oildichotomy:
People using GEJ to gain cheap popularity.
I cannot remember the last time I heard of the name Ibrahim Mantu even with the suppose political juggernaut that he says he is.

Politics in the educated south is different from politics in the uneducated North. People in the south are more likely to be influenced to vote by what they read (Nairaland, Social Media, Newspaper etc) than a Northerner.

I stand to be corrected

I kinda disagree. Informed People (southerners in this case going by your analogy) have a better grasp of what is happening With the economy than uninformed people. This makes them have a higher expectation of what government should be like, not what is offered to them. Remember you can easily convince an uninformed person that budgeted money is not enough to do anything meaningful, but when you come to an informed person, he'll cite instances for you about where else the same amount was used to achieve double. Our leaders have been deceiving us (going down memory lane) till the advent of social media and more information available. Thank God you're informed, lack of information increases the chances of poverty.

I agree that dumping OBJ was a misstep and losing was certain. He who knows, knows. However, he had the best economic team, with ministers that have gone ahead to head reputable international organizations. Still his style of ruling was laissez faire(little interference in the actions of his ministers and aides), and that ruined him.

I don't understand what PDP would mean without the PDP president and leader at the time in the person of His Excellency Jonathan. Honestly. May be he tried to separate control from the attendant responsibility. But he tried though he was weak, trusting and overpowered. He finally lost the contest when he became comatose and confused.

President Jonathan lost the elections for the following reasons;


1. He was incompetent.. There is no other way to explain this.

2. He failed to deliver on the Trust Nigerians bestowed on him in 2011 (myself included).. There is no question that the result of the Presidential elections of 2011 reflected the choice of Nigerians. The FRESH AIR campaign of 2011 was a resounding success. Jonathan got the votes of the North, East, West and South.. He won that election because Nigerians wanted him and put their hopes on him. He seemed to not appreciate the level of trust and responsibility that was put upon him. If Jonathan had delivered, all he had to do was sit inside Aso Rock sleeping and let his works campaign for him. He didnt need to cater to any Godfathers or Power Blocs.. All he had to do was deliver to the People and allow a free and fair election in 2015 and let the same people who put him in power return him again with a resounding and overwhelming victory.. But NO!! He surrounded himself with psychophants, Militants and praise-singers who shielded him from the truth for selfish interests.,

3. Security: Like seriously.. He failed woefully here. His praise singers can lie to him and tell him Chibok never happened, but can he deny the Mubi Polytechnic Massacre? The Madala Christmas day Bombing? The Kano Mosque bombing? The Nyanya Bus Park Bombing, e.t.c... Then as if Boko Haram's activities were not bad enough, the scandal of flying cash into South Africa on a Private jet to procure arms made him look even more clueless than previously thought.

4. The Economy: How he allowed Okonjo Iweala and Diezani remain in power for the duration of his tenure would forever remain a shock. Diezani lost 50 Billion from the NNPC account, got negotiated downwards to 20 Million and that money as of today is still unaccounted for. Okonjo kept using the rebasing of the Economy (which experts say is just an academic exercise) to deceive Nigerians into believing that all was well with our economy and that we were experiencing economic growth.. Fast forward to 2016, Oil Prices drop and all of a sudden Nigeria's economy is on the brink of total collapse. grin

5. Corruption: How did Stella Oduah not ever get tried? How did Farouk Lawan not ever get tried or jailed? How did Diezani not ever get probed, tried or sacked despite overwhelming evidence against her? Why did he grant a Federal Amnesty to Alamiesigha?

6. Patience Jonathan.. His failure to control his household (His wife) cost him his presidency.

7. Foreign Reserves.. What in Gods name did Jonathan do with all the Billions of dollars left behind by President Obasanjo and late President Yaradua? He not only depleted the reserves but went back to borrowing from the IMF and putting us back into indebtedness that Obasanjo had negotiated and paid off..



This is just a brief summary... The sins of Jonathan are too numerous to mention..



He lost it because he showed Nigerians he did not have what it takes to be President.

Thanks bro, posts like this revives my belief that there are still sane and objective people in Nairaland.
The influx of religious and tribalistic perverts into this forum has almost made me too scared to read comments anymore.
Thanks for your objectivity.

So in short, GEJ refused to work with the cabals so they formed another party and ousted him.

Then these brainless Nigerians thought they were voting out the cabal, instead the voted out the president who refused to work with them.

Now the cabal is back. Congratulations

Going by what you wrote, then this present Government should have ended. As they are not doing better. No indication shows they are doing better.

TAN claimed they had 75million signatures? Lolz. What's the total number of votes counted for the presidential elections sef, I doubt if it's up to 75million. I think Jonathan lost because people were just tired of pdp. And Jonathan let himself be deceived by sycophants who were just after his money.

So when he contested the election in 2011 and won against the same challenger buhari with the same inec controller Jega the north that voted for him forgot buhari was a northerner abi. Pls yall shud just stop decieving urselfs jonathan lost cos he overlooked his goodwill of the people and was more concerned about rewarding thiefs. Surrounded himself with militants and praise singers that lie more dan the devil. And this nee government came with that same goodwill and if they arent carefull dey too will leave same way in 2019 cos for the first time nigerians are beginning to know the power of thier voters card.

Good write up but only few people can remember the roll GEJ was playing during his first tenure but I am sure where he is now he should be thinking of how to apologize to Nigerians.
