*Jonathan Deserves Second Term Due To His Record Of Performance -Mimiko
By Ayo Balogun – Lagos – The Nigerian leading opposition All progressives Congress (APC) has been described as a “contraction” and formation of anger, confusion and frustration.
Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido threw the challenge Tuesday in Lagos, during the ruling PDP Governors’ Forum (PDPGF) Interactive Session With the Media and Civil Society Organizations.
Lamido challenged the opposition further when he accused it as a party of traditional election riggers as well as all evils.
He indicated that the business of the PDP was how to resolve challenge of poverty facing many Nigerians.
Corroborating the (PDPGF) Chairman and Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio that the APC was like a personal enterprise, Governor Lamido that declared the major opposition was stills fledgling, saying “kidnap one or two of its members”, the party would perish. This, he stated was unlike his party, the PDP which he described as an organic chemistry – can survive independently.
The Chairman, PDP South Western Governors’ Forum and Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko in his keynote address at the interactive sessions, stressed that the only place to burst political propaganda in Nigeria is South West, due to high level of political education, sophistication and dynamism of the residents.
Governor Mimiko established that what could not be taken away from the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan, were “empirical record of performance” and proper implementation of rule of law, citing the instances of allowing hierarchical succession in the appointment of Chief Justice of the Federation, neutrality in the affairs of the National Assembly as well as extensive composition, with respect to the background of last year over 400 delegates of the National Confab.
The Governor who recently returned to his old party – the ruling PDP, confessed the self-inflicted disaster of President Jonathan was his failure to properly and adequately engage the press, describing him as an “old school of a sort”.
Governor Mimiko therefore urged the mass media to pay serious attention to the tangible feat and elements of democracy as being promoted by President Jonathan.
