Presidential Primary is the celebration of Jonathan and the humiliation of Atiku

The presidential primary of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was the celebration of the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and the humiliation of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Jonathan won the presidential primary on Thursday January 13, 2010, in the Federal Capital of Abuja by a landslide as he thoroughly defeated his two opponents Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president of the most populous country in Africa and Mrs. Sarah Jibril. Mr. Jonathan had 2,736 votes compared to Abubakar's 805. Mrs. Jibril had only a single vote.

Mr. Jonathan as the presidential candidate of the PDP will now confront more formidable opponents from the opposing parties in the April presidential elections.
"He has not prepared himself to govern. He found himself accidentally as a president, and power being what it is, insists on continuing to govern," Abubakar said last Wednesday, but the majority of the delegates seemed to have ignored his criticisms and overwhelmingly rejected him.
