Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Hon. Kingsley Kuku, has urged people in the South West region to vote en masse for President Goodluck Jonathan if he presents himself for re-election in 2015.

Jonathan’s victory, he noted, would ensure fairness, justice and equity in the nation’s political landscape.

Speaking with reporters in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Kuku said: “The whole world can see what President Jonathan is doing and many Nigerians can testify to it. On behalf of 1.6 million voters in Ondo State and four million indigenes of Ondo State, we pledge our support for Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, because within the last 10 years, he has occupied so many positions and have left good legacies there”.

Kuku, who is also the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, said the recent efforts being made by the federal government to rehabilitate the Lagos/Ibadan expressway and provide jobs for the youth has demonstrated the president’s passion for the people of Southwest.

He faulted those opposing the president’s re-election due to the insecurity challenges confronting the country, adding, “We should not just vote based on popularity; we should imbibe the principles of fairness, justice and equity and allow others to have opportunity when that opportunity comes around, and I still maintain that position, that Jonathan should be given all the support that he needs to have a second term, because as far as I’m concerned, there are challenges, yes, but he is doing the best that he can to make this country a better place for us”.

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.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
