BayelsaDecides: It is a great day for us – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has
described the conduct of the Bayelsa state
governorship election as sign of good things
to come.
The former President who stepped out of his
palatial and expansive country home in
company of his wife, Patience and his mother,
to the polling booth erected just opposite the
main gate of his house, cast his vote at
exactly 1:40 pm and was closely followed by
Patience his wife and later, his mother.
The former President in a chat with journalists
after casting his vote, described “a peaceful,
credible and free election as the hallmark of
democracy.”
“I plead with my brothers and sisters in this
state to take the election peaceful. For me, it
is a great day. For us in the state. We have all
voted.
“In every election, there must be a winner and
there must be a looser. While the winner
celebrates, the looser laments. But the winner
must carry the looser along,” he said.
Apparently angered by the Card Reader that
failed to recognize his fingerprint earlier in the
morning, Jonathan lamented what he called
“the high rate of card reader failure.”
“This is a learning process. I believe before the
next elections, things will improve. The idea of
the card reader is okay, but it must be
acceptable. The card reader is creating more
problem than it solves.
He however appealed to all Bayelsans to take
things. Calmly and vote peacefully to elect
candidate of their choice to govern them.
