Senator Ajayi Borrofice (Ondo Northern Senatorial District), at the weekend, said the 2015 presidential election will be a walkover for the All Progressives Congress (APC), if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) picks President Goodluck Jonathan as its candidate.

He said it is the APC’s prayer that Jonathan emerges the PDP’s flagbearer.

Borrofice spoke with reporters at his Oka-Akoko home town in Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State during an empowerment programme for his constituents.

At the event, which was attended by APC state executives, led by Chief Isaac Kekemeke, 50 tricycles, 45 power generating sets, 45 grinding machines, 15 sewing machines, 12 wheel chairs and 20 vehicles were distributed to over 300 people.

Borrofice said: “We are praying that he declares his ambition. If he contests and emerges the PDP candidate, it will be easy for the APC to defeat him. His administration has failed and Nigerians are tired of it. “People are being killed daily and the President cannot find a solution to it. The unemployment rate is high and we are yet to forget what happened during the last immigration aptitude test, where scores of unemployed youths died.

“The young and the old are dying because of poor health care services and corruption has been legalised. Those who kick against the President’s ruling style are seen as the enemy of the nation. These are reasons why it would be an easy ride for the APC in 2015, if Jonathan is picked as the PDP’s candidate. Nigerians are watching with keen interest and they believe the best way to change bad leadership is through their votes in 2015.”

The senator advised the President to do everything possible to secure the release of the abducted Chibok school girls, saying their lives should not be toyed with.

He urged his people to give him a second term in the Senate, pledging to continue to empower them.
