Patience Jonathan’s attitude & anti-gay bill made Jonathan lose the election - PDP chieftain

Bayelsa state PDP publicity secretary, Mr. Osom Makbere says international and local factors contributed to President Jonathan's defeat at the 2015 general elections. He blamed it most on the president's wife and the signing of the anti-gay bill
"Jonathan was a victim and target of international cum domestic esoteric codes and conspiracies. On the international level, the passage of the anti-gay legislation led to criticisms and face-off with the US, and the West. The strides made in the economic sphere, especially domestic rice promotion, calculated by the Jonathan administration to flip economic growth, and boost import substitution, also negatively alerted the West. The shift to China for our railway transformation, and recently, the migration to Russia for arms and ammunition to quelling the insurgency also signalled to the West that Jonathan had started constituting a self-reliant and dependent nation-state, a feat seen too tall by the US and their allies in the West. The aforesaid international factors found room to flourish given the obstinacy and impudence on the part of Mrs. Jonathan. The end result of her personal ambition to plant ‘self-made’ governors triggered face-offs with some governors.” he told Punch.
