Leading governorship aspirant of the platform of the Peoples Democratic

Party in Abia State, Barr. Friday Nwosu says the recent adoption of

President Goodluck Jonathan as the party sole candidate in the 2015

presidential election is well deserved.
 
In an interview with journalists at his Jehovah Is Great House in Mgboko

Umuoria town, Obingwa council area on Sunday, Nwosu who congratulated the

national leadership of the PDP for the adoption, further commended the

President for dedicating himself to the service of the nation.

 
He added that despite the challenges facing the nation, Jonathan

achievements in office has seen him improve the lot of Nigerians, stressing

that his second term would witness greater delivery of democracy dividends

to the citizenry.
 
According to him, Jonathan is God sent because being a President of

Nigeria at such a critical time in its history is divine. He has refused to

be provoked or distracted in the performance of his duties. I have no doubt

Nigeria would have been in deep crisis, but for a humble and listening

Jonathan on seat as President.
 
If you assess his performance, you will discover that many sectors of the

Nigerian economy have started to take shape. Look at the Aviation,

education, Power, Agriculture and in transportation, the railway lines are

being brought back to life. Our airports are being remodeled. He has

improved them from what he met on ground. Remember that he has been

battling with the rot left by previous administrations. Nigeria has made

visible progress under him. Taking a look at where he came from, you will

be impressed with the achievements recorded within the period. He has shown

the zeal and commitment to change a lot of things in the best interest of

Above all, Jonathan has displayed democratic credentials and

respect for rule of law more than his predecessors.  I think these are the

issues the national leadership of PDP considered and wants him to

consolidate on his achievements in the interest of the country.

 
On whether the adoption of the President by the party is not against

democratic principles, Nwosu who maintained that the decision does not

foreclose any presidential aspirant from going ahead with his ambition,

added that it is capable of advancing good governance and constitutional

democracy in Nigeria.
 
What is wrong or undemocratic in asking a performing President to

continue? There is nothing undemocratic in the adoption of a sitting

President as a consensus candidate. It is an acceptable practice all over

the world as far as the President is interested to contest for a second

term. Even advanced democracies like USA and Britain have one time or the

other granted automatic tickets to their sitting presidents.

 
The governorship aspirant who has been receiving several endorsements by

political stakeholders across the 17 council areas of Abia state called on

Nigeria living at home and in Diaspora to support the adoption of Jonathan

for a second term by voting massively for him at the election to complete

his transformation agenda for the nation.
 
While commending Nigerians for their support for the Jonathan

administration, Nwosu urged them to shun some of the opposition politicians

who he said, do not mean well for Nigeria.
