Obama Influenced 2015 Election Against Me – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said a former President of the United States of America , Barack Obama , influenced the 2015 presidential election which he lost to the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari .

Jonathan in his new book , ‘ My Transition Hour , ’ which he publicly presented in Abuja on Tuesday , recalled that he was confident of winning the election based on his achievements .
He recalled how Obama , in a video message directly released to Nigerians , urged them to vote the opposition in the 2015 poll .

According to Jonathan , Obama released the video on March 23 , 2015 which was less than a week to the 2015 presidential election .
He recalled that the video came after Obama sent his Secretary of State, John Kerry , to Nigeria “ to protest the rescheduling of the election . ”

“ On March 23 , 2015 , President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote .
“ In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘ next chapter ’ by their votes .
“ Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the opposition to form a new government.
“ The message was so condescending , it was as if Nigerians did not know what to do and needed an Obama to direct them , ” the book read in part .

He criticised Obama , who was American president from 2009 to 2017 , for allegedly saying “ all Nigerians must be able to cast their votes without intimidation or fear . ”
Jonathan also did not spare Kerry , whom he said arrived in Nigeria , on Obama ’ s instructions , to protest the postponement of the 2015 election on January 25 , 2015 .

The former President said the top US diplomat was nonchalant in his attitude towards his government despite all efforts to make him understand that the decision to postpone the election was in the overall interest of Nigeria .

He stated , “ How can the US Secretary of State know what is more important for Nigeria than Nigeria ’ s own government ? How could they have expected us to conduct elections when Boko Haram controlled part of the North- East and were killing and maiming Nigerians ?

“ Not even the assurance of the sanctity of May 29 , 2015 , handover date could calm them down. In Nigeria , the Constitution is very clear : No President can extend his tenure by one day . ”

    "You need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day." Psalm 91:5

    Visionary leaders think ahead of their followers, as a proof of their leadership qualities as well as abilities. Anambra State under the able leadership of Chief Dr Willie Obiano as a security conscious Governor, has restored order and peace in the state. Anambra State today is the most investors' friendly state in Nigeria. The people are once more returned to their usual carefree life. They are no longer sleeping with one eye open.

    Having worked so long with His Excellency Chief Dr. Willie Obiano, Prince Chinedu Emeka PhD FNCS, KSM, Ikenga 2019 is happy to borrow a leaf from our dear security conscious Governor, by making it a priority that Anambra North Senatorial District's internal security structures would be reformed in order to give the people adequate security.

    The last known case of kidnapping in Anambra North, particularly in Anambra West LGA, which slowed down the tempo of Umueze Anam-Nzam-Kogi federal highway under construction, was a big challenge to Prince Dr. Chinedu Emeka. This challenge instead of becoming a stumbling block, help to foster his initiative to reform the internal security structures in Anambra North.

    This number three legislative agendum of Prince Chinedu Emeka PhD, is at the centre of his political philosophy. This is because when the peoples' security of lives and property is assured, it opens doors to so many developmental projects that cut across socio-political and economic well-being of the people.

    Prince Dr. Chinedu Emeka knows that no appreciable development will work out in Anambra North without adequate security measures been put in place. He is aware that the extent done by His Excellency Chief Dr Willie Obiano in securing the lives of the people in the state and their valuables, needs a legislative back up.

    As a man of vision and security conscious too, he knows that for a lasting security machineries to be put in place in Anambra North, joint efforts of the neighbouring states is needed. He is optimistic that with His Excellency Chief Dr Willie Obiano' s efforts towards security in the state, the criminal elements that used to stay in Anambra State have shifted their operation base to the neighbouring states. Hence, he makes it clear that the neighbouring states would be involved in the case of making Anambra North the most peaceful geopolitical zone to live in Anambra State and in Nigeria at large using the legislative apparatus.

    Ndi Anambra North, we have not been opportune to be represented by a man of vision, a man with the passion to turn Anambra North around for good, like Prince Chinedu Emeka PhD. Why not give him the chance now? There is no other better time than now, to give him our votes. This is the time, when his political philosophy, along with his political party -All Progressives Grand Alliance-the peoples' friendly party is out to bring the change we need.

    The fact remains that Anambra West and Ayamelum are the only two local governments that are yet to manage the resources of Anambra North Senatorial District as Senator. Prince Chinedu Emeka PhD, is from Anambra West LGA. It is a mutual agreement between Anambra West and Ayamelum that it will be their turn after Prince Dr. Chinedu Emeka, who is only vibrant Candidate contesting for Senate Anambra North Senatorial District. He is the hope of Ndi Anambra North come 2019. This is because he has the vision cum passion to take Anambra North Senatorial District out of the darkness of over neglect, by the past and present Senators. Hence, he wants to use the internal security reform to bring his developmental initiatives home.

    Vote APGA Anambra North.
    Vote Prince Chinedu Emeka PhD, FNCS, KSM Ikenga 2019, a man with high level of security consciousness, for Senate Anambra North Senatorial District.
