Tukur blasts Jonathan’s critics



Former National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday blastd President Goodluck Jonathan’s critics, saying that they should criticise constructively.

Tukur, who spoke when Goodluck Support Group (GSG) visited him in his residence in Abuja, said “if criticism does not change a given situation it is null and void.”

He said: “Criticism in itself is not bad, but if we want to criticise, make it constructive. If your criticism does not offer anything, it is negative and does not offer anything. You criticise because you want to make things better and if your criticism does not make things better it is null and void.”

According to him, Jonathan is the most criticised president in the history of Nigeria, and that as Nigerians we shouldlearn to support our leaders.

Earlier, the deputy national coordinator of GSG, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, noted that Tukur’s maturity in his approach to issues had made Nigerians to be proud of him, adding that the way he took his resignation had helped to deepen the nation’s democracy.
Olafeso, who said the GSG had 3, 000 groups across the country, added that Tukur’s “sacrifice has not gone unnoticed.”

He said the events of the past that led to the death of many Nigerians in the previous elections might be very painful, adding that “the only way this thing can be death with is through peaceful development and the provision of employment.”
