Former President Jonathan May Contest 2019 Elections – Dele Momodu Says

Dele Momodu In a new article titled, “The second coming of Goodluck Jonathan”,  wrote, “I have been reading about the rising profile of GEJ, and wish to state without equivocation that no one should rule him out of the 2019 presidential race.

I first hinted this possibility about two months ago and wish to reiterate that Nigerians should prepare for the shock that awaits us. The story of Donald Trump should bring us back to our senses. Nothing is impossible.

The second coming of GEJ may be so far-fetched or even belong in those categories of impossibilities but I wish to plead with our government and my fellow citizens not to rule it out.

As one of those who made our modest and humble contributions to the coming of this Buhari government, I’m pleading with trepidation.” Momodu blamed the ex-president’s rising profile on the failure of the government to maintain “the economy it met”.

He said, “Nigerians would have been ready to enter fire with Buhari. But there are just too many unresolved problems and challenges. The excuses that GEJ and company left this peculiar mess behind has refused to fly.”

He said that Nigerians who voted massively for APC are “confronted with the reality of an economic recession they never planned for; a situation they did not experience under the GEJ administration and under previous governments”.

He said, “The BBC reported on Friday how Jonathan caused a stir in Sokoto State during his visit to the state to pay his respects to Ibrahim Dasuki, the late former Sultan of Sokoto.

According to the report, Jonathan was received by a large crowd of admirers, some holding banners bearing the words “Come Back Baba Jonathan”. “The same voices that chanted “Sai Baba” and “Jonathan Must Go” are now fiddling with the tunes of the possibility of a Jonathan to stage a comeback.

Here lies the irony of political triumph and the paradox of high expectations. Suddenly, Nigerians who had high hopes and voted massively for change are now caught in a limbo between confusion and uncertainty.”
