I Never Betrayed Jonathan – Mu’azu

Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu, has broken silence over the allegation made by ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, that he was betrayed by some members of his party, the PDP, including Mu’azu, in the 2015 presidential election.
Jonathan said in a book, Against Run of Play, by Olusegun Adeniyi, that he lost in that election because people like Mu’azu didn’t do enough to support his ambition as the party’s presidential candidate in 2015.
Jonathan claimed that Mu’azu and some other trusted allies worked against his re-election.
However, the former Governor of Bauchi State, who has remained low since his party lost in the election, took to his Facebook account, to respond to the allegations of betrayal.
Mu’azu wrote on his Facebook page: “Ordinarily, I would have ignored the allegation that I betrayed President Jonathan and my party, but doing so could create the impression that I really did.
“I find it difficult to believe that President Jonathan would level such allegation against me. How can one betray himself?
“As the then National Chairman of the PDP, I have been at the forefront of the presidential campaign train. Those who insinuate that I betrayed President Jonathan and my party are being economical with the truth.
“In the face of abuse, insult and open ridicule by our friends and brothers we supported President Jonathan faithfully.
“In all sincerity, I gave my best and all to my party. Those who blame us for not delivering maximum votes to the former President in the north seem to have forgotten that it is the people who vote.”
