The re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan received a boost

Thursday as traders in the South-East announced their endorsement of his

candidature for the February 14 presidential election.

The traders, under the aegis of South-East Traders Association, made the

announcement at a meeting with Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State in

Awka.
Chairman of the association, Chief Eze Nwankwo, said the traders had also

adopted all the candidates contesting on the platform of All Progressives

Grand Alliance, APGA, in the zone as their candidates.

Nwankwo disclosed that the decision of the group to throw its weight

behind Jonathan and APGA candidates in the forthcoming elections was

influenced by the intense lobbying by Obiano.
He commended the governor for his determination, magnanimity and support

to traders in the area and assured him that “Ndigbo will take their

rightful position in the country.”
He said the association, with members in Anambra, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu and

Imo states, supported the strategic vision of APGA under its current

leadership.
Obiano thanked the association for resolving to adopt Jonathan and APGA

candidates, adding that only Jonathan would guarantee a peaceful Nigeria,

devoid of discrimination and extremism.
