Goodluck Jonathan: Political Office, Public Fund Reveal Person's True Character by LegendVibes: 6:56am On Nov 16, 2019
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has accused Nigerian politicians of undermining the electoral system in Nigeria.

Jonathan who spoke in Port Harcourt during the presentation of a book by Gabriel Toby, a former deputy governor of Rivers on Thursday November 14, called for the adoption of electronic system of voting to curb electoral malpractices as he stated that the country would not have deteriorated to this point if people’s votes mattered.

He admitted that there is an assumption that every politician is useless but averred that people don't change when elected into public office. The Bayelsa-born politician insisted that what happens is we vote for people we do not know.

He said: “The assumption is that every politician is useless, but the question of whether people change when they are elected into public office is something political analysts, researchers should unravel.

“However, I believe that people do not change when they get into political office, rather we voted for people we do not know.

“It is difficult to know people until you give the person political office and public funds to spend, that’s when you know the true character of such fellow.

"Another key issue is that we do not vote people into leadership offices, they use different means to get into office.

“When we develop as a nation to a point where our votes count, when people vote who they believe in, the behaviour of politicians will change.”

True. If he had known Dickson will be that bad, Jonathan would not have supported him.

This man must be the happiest man in the world right now...

That feeling when you warned someone about something but he still went head strong and came back defeated.

... Little wonder madam Patience is glowing like early morning sun.

Electronic voting will never be considered in Nigeria because these politicians love the thuggery and bloodshed and bullying involved with getting into power.

Imagine elrufai and shuaibu kneeling to beg the masses to forgive the mistakes of a young governor.

Good thing they admitted there were intentional mistakes because 4years of mistakes is a costly one.

Even the young governor was standing while his co-thieves were pleading for him, no remorse.

Kogilites I know say una be yoloba people but make una wise up oh. Una mumu Don do.

No doubt it will be abused....

But when put in juxtaposition with the abuse that manual voting is going through now, you will agree with me that e-voting is the way to go.

Nigeria can recruit that company that is responsible for Bbnaija vote to help INEC configure e-voting platform.

Now you alluded to Tacha's disqualification, does that count among the abuse of e-voting? If it was elections, we could count that as part of political intrigues which precludes elections.

What we are saying is that we need to make sure that among those not disqualified, whoever we choose to vote for should emerge victorious.

Don't be so used to the old ways that you are afraid of trying something new.
