2015: President Jonathan'll Run And Win, Says Sowunari
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, February 03, (THEWILL) - The Coordinator/Convener, The Jonathan Project, George Kerley Sowunari, has declared that President Goodluck Jonathan will surely contest the 2015 presidential election and win.
Sowunari, in a statement issued at the weekend, said: 'In 2015, we will witness the might of the political dexterity of this unusual human being who happens to be the current President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and yet again, we will see that the forces of providence that powered this former lecturer, technocrat, deputy governor, governor, Vice President and acting President to the highest political office in the land are not only still there but are far much more stronger now.
' Sowunari said though he is not President Jonathan and so cannot speak on his behalf, he insisted that President Jonathan must run in 2015.
, saying it is a consensus agreement for his people.
'He must declare his willingness to run for the Presidency in 2015.
And then He will run and win.
'That Goodluck Jonathan will run in 2015 is a consensus agreement for his people, supporters and well wishers.
I do not think he will want to go against the wishes of those who have shown gratitude for the humane leadership that he has given Nigeria and Nigerians in the past few years,' he said.
According to Sowunari, 'In 2011, Nigerians came out in their numbers to defend Dr.
Goodluck Jonathan and elect him President in what was adjudged the best election thus far in Nigeria.
'In 2015, they will do it again because he is delivering on his mandate.
They will vote for him because they are seeing work done!' Defending President Jonathan further, Sowunari stated that 'Those who said President Jonathan is not working should go and read Dr.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala's response to the 50 questions raised by the fellows in the Finance Committee of the House of Representatives.
'They had set out to test her but she ended up giving them an assignment.
People should learn to know and recognise very quickly those are far better than them.
' Sowunari added: 'Those who say President Jonathan is not doing anything to curb poverty in Nigeria should go back and listen to the advise that Central Bank Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi gave when he said that the Nigerian Civil Service should be cut down by about 50 percent.
' Sowunari therefore asked: 'Imagine what would happen if President Jonathan decides to go ahead with such an advise and then prunes down the Civil Service by about 50 percent.
Imagine the immediate unemployment crisis that will hit the country.
' According to Sowunari, 'Nigerians are not foolish.
They know that President Jonathan is working.
They want him to do more because they feel that we have been shortchanged for too long.
