South-South governors, leaders endorse Jonathan for 2015
South-South governors and leaders of the Peoples’ Democratic Party on Tuesday endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan to seek re-election next year.
The endorsement of the President for the 2015 election was the highpoint of a stakeholders’ meeting convened by the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mua’zu, as part of his zonal tour of the South-South.
The leaders of the region in a communiqué read at the end of the meeting by former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Chibudom Nwuche, hinged their endorsement of the President on the giant strides recorded by his administration across all sectors.
The communiqué reads: “We acknowledge the giant strides of Mr. President in the area of education, agriculture, health, tourism, re-invention of the railway systems, roads and other infrastructural development across the country. It is also notable that there is tremendous focus on economic empowerment of Nigerians.
“In view of his (President) doggedness in pursuing his transformation agenda for Nigeria, the South-South is in full support of President Jonathan’s administration. We therefore, endorse Mr. President for the forthcoming 2015 presidential election so as to continue his transformation agenda which transcends across all spheres of our lives.”
The communiqué was signed by Governors Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom , Seriake Dickson (Bayelsa) Liyel Imoke (Cross River ) and Emmanuel Uduaghan (Delta State).
