NIGERIA: No Vacancy In Aso Rock In 2015 - Ministers

For the fist time, members of the Council have said there is no vacancy in Aso Rock in 2015.

They said the position of the President would still be occupied by their boss, President Goodluck Jonathan.

Minister of Youth Developments, Mr. Boni Haruna, stated this in Abuja on Tuesday at the Summit of the Goodluck Support Groups.

The former governor of State spoke on behalf of other ministers.

He said, “There is peace in the country and there is no need to ask the man responsible for the peace to leave the scene.

“President Jonathan has done well and because of this, I and other ministers are saying there is no vacancy in Rock in 2015.”

Meanwhile, various support groups have called on the Party to give Jonathan an automatic ticket to run in the 2015 presidential election.

The groups, under the aegis of Groups, stated this in a communiqué they delivered to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, at the end of their Summit in Abuja.

The communiqué was read and delivered to Anyim on behalf of the group by the Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufa’I Alkali, who is also the Coordinator of the group.

Alkali said between 7,000 and 8,000 groups, with about eight million members nationwide, had signed the communiqué, calling on Jonathan to declare his second term ambition and the PDP to nominate him as its presidential candidate in the 2015 poll.

Te communiqué, he said, read, “We the leaders, patrons and sponsors of over 7,000 non-governmental organisation and support groups that make up the Group, after careful review of the performance of the President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR,  and the current development conditions of our country, Nigeria, hereby resolve as follows:

“That President Goodluck Jonathan has performed very well.

“That it is in the interest of Nigeria and all Nigerians that his transformation agenda should continue beyond 2015.

“That President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan should step forward and contest for the 2015 presidential election.

“That the Party should nominate Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as its candidate for the 2015 presidential election.

“That as leaders and representatives of the over 7,0000, 8,000 organisations with over eight million membership nationwide, do hereby affirm our loyalty and unqualified support for President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and undertake to deliver him overwhelmingly at the polls in 2015.”
