Abuja rally urges Jonathan to seek re-election

Abuja rally urges Jonathan to seek re-election

A pro-Goodluck Jonathan group at a rally in Abuja this afternoon urged the president  to contest the 2015 presidential election.

Participants at the rally, which was organised by the Goodluck Initiative for Transformation (GIFT), urged the president to declare his intention to contest. They declared their support for him.

According to coordinator of the group, Chinedu Okpalanma, Jonathan deserves to be re-elected so he can continue his  Transformation Agenda.

“The only way our country can truly get to the promised land is by ensuring our President continues in office come 2015,” Okpalanma said.

The rally is coming a day after the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, College of Education Academic Staff Union and students staged a peaceful protest in the city, but were abused by the Police.

This is not the first time that the same group will be holding a rally to urge the president to re-contest in 2015. On March 31, 2014, the group, which is “an umbrella body for organisations seeking to promote good governance,” marched through the streets of the capital city.

Jonathan has not publicly declared his intention to run, but rallies of this nature are normally a prelude.

    Very sad for the future of those youth clamouring for the re-run of Jonathan. They are only trading their tomorrow/future and is very unfortunate for them. Things are not going right as no one needs to keep u informed before u notice this. Insecurity is all over, no job for our youth, our education is nothing to right home about. Am sincerely sorry for Nigeria as a country.

    Nigeria itself is sitting on a keg of gun powder. This is the height of shame. This country has lost posterity

    The youth clamouring for jonathan reelection are ignoramus. GEJ reelection will spell doom for the geographical area known as Nigeria.

    Let the man show up another contest when he has safely delivered over 190 Chibok school girls. Meanwhile, he should do the country a favour of denouncing those paid dancers.
