ABUJA—In his usual  critical stance on issues of governance in Nigeria, Second Republic member of the House of Representatives, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has again declared President Goodluck Jonathan a failure.
He also said the President should jettison the idea of rigging the 2015 elections to favour himself, warning that there will be mayhem, if there was rigging.

Mohammed in an interview with Vanguard on Tuesday, said President Jonathan had failed in every critical area of governance, such as security, law and order which could win him a second term, saying he would be disgraced at the polls should he dare contest the election.
Mohammed, who is also a leading member of the Northern Elders Forum, said the north would not cast its vote for Jonathan.

He said:  “I am not and I have never been a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. And I have never been a governor and I don’t think I will be a governor in this world. But what I am saying is this: in a democracy, there is what we call performance legitimacy.

“That is if you are elected into a position of authority or power, your legitimacy does not only rest on your winning the election, but also in performing on the job so that people will say you have done well and may be in the mood to give you another term.

“As far as I am concerned, Jonathan did not win the last election. Goodluck has not performed in any manner credible that will warrant his being re-elected or think of being considered for re-election.
“Now, whether there was an agreement or not, the fact of the matter is that he has failed in very critical areas of governance. He has failed in security. He has failed in law and order. He has failed in economy. He has failed in everything that matters to a government and to the people of a country.

“Now, for me, he should not consider running but if he is determined to run and rig the election the way he did in 2011 together with INEC and security services, then he is asking for mayhem in the country and I have said it several times, if he insists on running and rigging the election, there will be mayhem.

“Now, many media people have chosen to ignore the aspect where I said if he runs and rigs the election. Let me tell you, I have been in politics for over 40 years,
“If he can decide today that there is going to be free and fair election by INEC in conjunction with the Police, the DSS, then my reaction will be let Goodluck stand for election, we will go there vote and defeat and disgrace him. But the fact of the matter is that people are very wary about the way elections have been conducted in the history of this country.”
