She said: “I called former President Jonathan and told him, ‘why not wait till the result is declared before conceding?’
“This was two minutes after he made the announcement.
“Responding, he said, ‘Aunty, I already know what the outcome would be. I have done the right thing. I am keeping to my word that no blood is worth my ambition.
“I said to him, ‘You are great indeed’. He thanked me for my call.
“I don’t regret supporting him, but we thank God for the peace and unity of the country.”
Reacting to the spate of defections to the ruling APC by PDP members, the politician said she will not leave the PDP.
“You can support the President without defecting to his party. Many are doing this for what they can gain.”
“I remain in PDP but will support good policies of the present government.”
