“I Shouldn’t Have Joined Politics” – Goodluck Jonathan

Date:

Jonathan stated that he was not prepared when he joined politics in Bayelsa State, wondering if he was an accidental politician.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan is regretting joining politics.

According to him, he was not prepared when he joined politics in Bayelsa State.

He said he should not have joined politics.

Speaking at the gala night of the University of Port Harcourt Class ‘81 Reunion over the weekend in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, Jonathan described himself as an introvert who was not cut out for politics.

The former Nigerian leader submitted that politics is meant for extroverts who are involved in a lot of conversations and negotiations, adding that introverts don’t well in politics.

Jonathan said:-
“You know that I don’t know if I am an accidental politician because I am supposed not to be a politician.

“If you plot a curve from introvert to extrovert and start from zero as the most introvert person and 100 as the most extrovert person, and you plot that continuum, I will be between 35 and 45 on the introvert side. So, I am an introvert.

“An introvert is supposed not to be involved in politics because politics involves much talking and you always want to show your presence. But somehow, God has a way of solving problems.”

At the event, Jonathan who was given an award of honour by Class ‘81, expressed gratitude for the award and the pioneer graduates of the institution.
