Rising from a meeting held in Warri, Delta State on Wednesday, the Chairman of the group, Chief Ogbetuo said they have decided to adopt Jonathan for second term because there are no other Presidential candidates that are better than Jonathan.
Beside, Ogbetuo maintained that as President of Nigeria for close to three and half years, Jonathan had performed better than his predecessors who stayed in office for eight years but have nothing to show for it, adding that in accordance to Nigerian constitution Jonathan is fully qualified to contest for second term.
“Besides having the constitution right to contest for second term, Jonathan’s had achieved a lot within the short period of his leadership despite issue of insecurity used by his opponents to disorganized his government. He had reformed the educational and health sectors, built roads across the length and breadth of Nigeria, his government is the most transparent, the judiciary is free and there is freedom of association and press. He had also transformed the electricity and oil sectors. Despite efforts of saboteur, there is no scarcity of petroleum commodity, while electricity supply is gradually gaining momentum,” Ogbetuo disclosed, just as he pointed out that if giving another four years, Jonathan would stabilize all the sectors in the country.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Ogbetuo however warned members of of the group to desist from supporting former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe in his ambition to become Delta State Governor in 2015 for fighting Chief Edwin Clark..
Ogbetuo who described Chief Edwin Clark as their father vowed that Orubebe cannot fight their father and expect them to support him in his quest to occupy the state house at Asaba come 2015.
“We all knew how Orubebe became the Minister of the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs through effort of Chief Edwin Clark.. We all knew how Orubebe rode on the back of our father, Chief Edwin Clark to gain political prominence, but he later turned round to bite the finger that fed him,” Ogbetuo recalled, warning that none of their members should support Orubebe candidacy for the governorship of Delta State in 2015.
