Tinubu Insulted Jonathan And His Wife – Briggs


Aug 31, 2022

Environmental and human rights activist, Ann-Kio Briggs has said that former president Goodluck Jonathan does not have any votes to offer the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Briggs, during an interview with Punch, said Tinubu ought to be ashamed for paying Jonathan a visit.

She explained that the former lagos governor had verbally insulted Jonathan and his wife, Patience, over his presidential bid a few years back because he was a minority candidate from Ijaw in the Niger Delta.

She argued that during Jonathan’s administration, Tinubu was one of his major opponents, who mobilised against him and called him all sorts of derogatory names

She said: “Politics in Nigeria is a filthy game about personalities, not about the people. If not, Tinubu should be too ashamed to visit Jonathan and sit down on a chair in his house.

“This is a man (Tinubu) that cannot differentiate between politics of ideology and shameful politics. They hauled insults at him (Jonathan), they hauled insults at his wife.

“They constructed effigies to mock Jonathan; they organised ‘Occupy Nigeria’ and paraded with coffins and did all kinds things against Jonathan. Today, they are shamelessly visiting Jonathan, sitting on his chair in his house.”
