Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has pledged his support for President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 election.

He declared his support for the president Saturday at the inauguration/swearing in ceremony of 17 local government chairmen in the state at the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu.

While assuring the president of the support of the people of the state if and when he decides to run for a second term, Chime warned that Enugu would be off-limits to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

“We pledge our total loyalty to President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, we support him and all his programmes.

“As long as he continues in this business, we are solidly behind him; he will not need to come to Enugu State to campaign, if and when he declares to contest in 2015.

“He should not border to come and campaign in Enugu; APC will not come, so he should not border”, he said.

The governor also said he was praying for a successor that would perform better than he did in 2015.

“My prayer for Enugu State is to have a much better person than myself. If you produce somebody like me as a successor, we are not improving. I don’t want the next Governor to be like me”, he stated.

Chairman of Enugu East Council Area, Prince Cornelius Nnaji, who spoke on behalf of the 17 council chairmen, assured the Governor of their unalloyed loyalty and promised to deliver quality projects to the electorate.

    The psycophants at it again. Bitterness opens 2015 electioneering campaign. Chime, small small. Tread softly. The era of do or die politics must have gone in Nigeria except we are as blind as the religious bigots in the North I.e the boko haram members.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
