Why I’m stepping away from active politics – Jonathan


A former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has registered his intention to shift from active political activities to focus on humanitarian services.

He made the revelation during the inauguration of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) state executive council on Sunday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

The former president said his decision to move away from the party’s activities is to concentrate on his humanitarian foundation and be of more use to the country in other areas outside politics, Punch Newspaper reported Monday.

“Don’t be discouraged if you do not see me in most party activities in the state. I decided to appear in this event so that I will not be misunderstood.

“I’m shifting away from being an effective partisan politician because of my foundation. People who want to partner me felt that if you are a partisan leader in the country, they will eat with you with a long spoon.

“I felt that after serving as president of this country, I should go to some other areas where my services would be required. Through that process, I would be able to support the nation and the state in one way or the other,” Punch quoted Mr Jonathan saying.
