If I Lose On The 28th, I Will Go Back To My Village, Otuoke – President Jonathan



The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan in an interview with Al Jazeera yesterday in Lagos, said if he lose the presidential election on March 28, he would return to Otuoke, his hometown in Bayelsa State.
“If by default somebody wins the election, of course I will go back to my village. The country is not my father’s estate. I’ll not lose the election,” Jonathan said.
He also denied ever planning to sack the INEC Chairman insisting no President or Governor wakes up to take drastic decisions especially with a sensitive office like that of INEC, which can be questioned within and outside the country.
“(I have no plans to sack the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega) except somebody is insinuating that the chairman has done something wrong. You cannot change an officer, except the person has done something wrong. The government, whether at the federal or state level, (be it) the president or governor, does not wake up and change somebody, especially somebody like the INEC chairman, except that person has done something wrong.
