A pro-Jonathan group, the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), has cautioned opponents of President Goodluck Jonathan against disrespecting the nation’s top office in the name of politics.
Co-ordinator of the legal department of the group, Mr Nureni Otutu, stated this in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital yesterday.
He said: “it is only in Nigeria that an individual or group of individuals will hurl insults on the person of the President. Yes there is freedom of speech, this freedom should be exercised with decorum, decency and respect”.
The legal practitioner stressed that the office of the president should be sacred, which must be respected and revered at all times.
He also commended President Jonathan for “the good job he has done”.
Otutu maintained that the outstanding performance of Dr Jonathan is the bond between TAN, the president and the Nigerian masses, because his group is out to promote good governance aimed at making life easier and better for Nigerians.
Otutu said: “President Jonathan is a personification of quality leadership in humility. He has brought decency into the administration of the country, the result of which is landmark accomplishment in almost all the sectors of the economy”.
