I have no regrets for anything I have said, says Okupe

Doyin Okupe, special adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, says he has no regrets for the statements he made in the past, admitting that he said “a lot of things” to promote his boss.

Okupe also decried the verbal attacks on Jonathan and his aides, saying they had become frequent since the president lost the March 28 presidential election.

“These are very interesting times in our nation. An election has come and gone. A victor has emerged and the loser has conceded. Yet some of our folks are behaving as if we have just gone through a war between two hostile nations,” he wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.

“APC agents all over the place are unrelenting in their tirades of abuses, insults and lies against President Jonathan, his aides and supporters.


“It is shameful that we are still saddled with denying falsehood and fabrications in the social media and even hither to highly respected newspapers. Missing $20b found in an account in zenith, PGEJ returns tons of dollars to federation accounts, N2trillion spent on elections by PGEJ, Okupe says Chibok girls will not be found.

“How many lies, deliberate falsehood and evil propaganda, outright curses and attacks must we suffer just because we lost an election in which we were never disgraced? Buhari polled 15m (56%) while Jonathan scored 12m (46%). Those who talk to us disparagingly should respect the sentiments of the 12 million who voted for Jonathan. Of course, we have our reservations about the results but we will pass on that for now.

“We have lost this election but this is not and can never be a crime. We are all Nigerians and having lost does not make us less. We should be allowed to bow out peacefully and constitutionally on the 29th of May.


“Yes I said Buhari was not electable. I also said his victory will not happen. I said and I still insist that Buhari has no WASC certificate.

“I said a lot of things to promote my candidate and many things to put his opponent down. I have no regrets for any of the statements I made. Lai Mohammed said worse. This is the nature of politics. For anyone who cares to listen, we will be back. Period.”

    Your comment..No apologies my man, there are men and there are men among them. Truth is that the law of the land says every contestant must attach a copy of his credentials which he failed to do. Nigeria is indeed a jungle some people are above the law while others are criminalised for doing no wrong because they are minorities. Might is right indeed. As far as the constitution is concerned he remained disqualified indeed. Lack of men of courage and character is our greatest challenge. God bless you Dr Pipe.

      @kfo, “…..As far as the constitution is concerned he remained disqualified indeed”. Which constitution are you referring to? ol’boy , -please read the constitution very well and acquaint yourself with its provisions before commenting. Mark my word, this man will soon be singing a new song.
