Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that he reduced his political activities since he quit power in 2015 to enable him concentrate on his foundation.

Jonathan made this revelation on Sunday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, when Governor Douye Diri inaugurated the state executive council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to him, he was shifting away from partisan politics to focus more attention on his foundation so that the realisation of its goals would not be marred by partisanship.

“Don’t be discouraged if you do not see me in most party activities in the state. I decided to appear in this event so that I will not be misunderstood.

“I’m shifting away from being an effective partisan politician because of my foundation. People who want to partner me felt that if you are a partisan leader in the country, they will eat with you with a long spoon.

“I felt that after serving as President of this country, I should go to some other areas where my services would be required. Through that process, I would be able to support the nation and the state in one way or the other,” he said.

The former president called on the new state executive council to run an all-inclusive administration, to promote peace, unity and stability in achieving more successes for the party.

KanyiDaily recalls that Goodluck Jonathan said he has no reason at this time to resign his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), or retire completely from politics.
