‘I knew ex-president would lose 2015 elections,’ David Mark says

The revelations were contained in a book titled “Against the Run of Play,” which was written by former presidential spokesman, Segun Adeniyi.

Mark said further that the North conspired against Jonathan but he didn’t take the conspiracy seriously.

The revelations were contained in a book titled “Against the Run of Play,” which was written by former presidential spokesman, Segun Adeniyi.

“I saw it and at difference times, I pointed out to him and the party that the projections being made by some people around the president about what the voting pattern in the north would were wrong,” Mark said.

“I could see the conspiracy and the gang-up building up in the north against the aspiration of Jonathan but my voice was drowned out by those who took it for granted that a sitting president, and one from PDP, could not lose.

“Some people were deceiving the president with the kind of false scenarios they were painting for him. The VP could see the conspiracy but I don’t know how much influence he had on the campaign. Why Jonathan couldn’t see it until it was too late is what I find difficult to understand,” he added.

Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo also said that Jonathan lost the election because he thought it could be bought.
