Also, the stage was set to manipulate the elections”, Our brother Goodluck Jonathan refused to listen to us. To him, the life of any Nigerian was not worth his election or ambition. For us, that was an abdication of his duties as President because we were also involved in the elections and we wanted a free and fair elections”
