Ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, has on Thursday stated that he enjoyed more support from the South-East than his own region, South-South when he was in power.
Jonathan made this known in Onitsha, Anambra State during the grand finale of the People Democratic Party, PDP, governorship campaign candidate in Anambra, Oseloka Obaze.
He urged Nigerians to collectively defend and stand firm for democracy.
The ex- president applauded the people of South East, saying, “I got more support from South East than I got from the South South where I come from”.
He stated, “We must collectively defend democracy in the country because no matter what you are, until you are able to elect your leader peacefully, the international community will not take you as developed society.
“Where elections are manipulated, there is no election. We use this opportunity to mobilise all Nigerians, especially the people of the state to stand firm for democracy and to do everything to protect democracy.”
Remember the ex-president also said Anambra had remained a PDP state since the beginning of democracy in 1999 till date.
The ex-president had also said 80 percent of the people were still members of the party
