2015: Automatic Ticket to Jonathan Well Deserved; Says Nwosu
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.
