2015: ‘8,000 groups rooting for Jonathan’
No fewer than 8, 000 support groups across the country have registered their willingness to enlist in the ongoing campaign for President Goodluck Jonathan to seek re-election in 2015.
The President’s Political Adviser, Prof. Rufai Ahmed Alkali, stated this Monday while briefing reporters on the activities of the groups which are being coordinated by his office.
The groups, under the umbrella of the Goodluck Support Group (GSG) are apparently waiting to be mobilsed with funding from official and other sources.
While submitting its report, a 10-man special committee set up by Alkali to restructure and streamline the activities of the support groups, stated that more groups would still be joining the bandwagon in the days ahead.
The Chairman of the Committee, Gen. Adamu Ibrahim (rtd) observed that opposition to President Jonathan’s 2015 ambition would be stiffer than what obtained in the 2011 presidential election.
He enjoined the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Presidency to come up with campaign strategy strong enough to ensure Jonathan’s victory in 2015.
Alkali assured the various groups of official support, irrespective of their sizes, saying that they would all be carried along in the scheme of things.
