BUHARI NO THREAT TO JONATHAN - CAMPAIGN CO-ORDINATOR
The Campaign Co-ordinator of the Goodluck Sambo Campaign Organisation in Nasarawa State, Prince James Angbazo has said that General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), will never be a threat to the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan in April this year.
Prince Angbazo, who stated this yesterday in a chat with Daily Sun at his residence in Nasarawa-eggon also said President Jonathan would win overwhelmingly in all states of the federation during the April 2011 presidential election. He said President Jonathan had every reason to win the election, as, according to him, 'President Jonathan was able to tackle fuel problems in the country just within six months.
Angbazo who is also the chairman, Governing Board of the National Agricultural Seeds Council, a parastatal under the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources also noted that there was the need for reconciliation with the former vice-president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (retd), General Aliyu Gusau (retd) and the Kwara State Governor, Bukola Saraki in order to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) captured every nook and cranny of the country during the next general election.
He said President Jonathan had said he would do one term as a president of the country as, according to him, President Jonathan's government was a continuation of the late president Yar'Adua's government after which a northerner could still contest in 2015 as president. When asked to comment on the administration of Governor Aliyu Akwe Doma of Nasarawa State, Agbazo said the governor had done very well in the last four years of his government, hence the need for him to have another four years of purposeful leadership in the state.
He named some of the achievements of Governor Doma to include the construction of roads and urban roads, opening up of feeder roads across the state, agricultural production (Badakoshi), opening of clinics across the state, among other achievements. Angbazo therefore called on the people of the state to rally round Governor Doma and vote for him for the second term so that he could consolidate on the major achievements recorded in the past four years.
On what he (Prince Angbazo) wanted to be come 2015, He said 2015 was a long way to go but expressed the hope that PDP would form the new government in 2011 and prayed God to take him to 2015 before he would decide on what to do. While calling on the people of Nasarawa to come out en masse to take the advantage of the registration exercise and register for the forthcoming elections, he also advised Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to show zero tolerance to political thuggery and do what was right to ensure free and fair election come 2011. On the youth, he advised them to shun thuggery and other acts capable of tarnishing their good image in the society.
