“We have lost three states in the south west but we have started recapturing our states starting with Ekiti-State. By the grace of the almighty God, in 2015, we will not only capture our own state that have been taken over by the opposition. As I always tell my friend, governor Raji Fashola that we are coming and indeed, we shall win.”
Speaking further, he said “I want to assure you that the people of South west are totally PDP. Everybody knows that PDP controls the majority of the people and indeed, the majority of the states in the south west and I want to assure you that we are battle ready, election ready come 2015 to take over those states.
“I want assure Mr President that your leadership that has been so purposeful, has been so committed that the people of the South west and indeed the people of Nigeria will reward you in the 2015 elections by re electing you as President.
“The team you have here, members of the National Working Committee, members of the Board of Trustees, members of NEC and of course, all PDP members are committed to your coming back in 2015. We pray that God will favour us.”
Speaking on behalf of the South west, Ekiti State Governor-elect, Mr Ayodele Fayose assured the president of the region’s commitment in securing their votes.
Fayose said “your adoption is all you need to win a second term and it will come with ease.
I have read the ranting of the other people, we cannot allow them to bring bad luck to Nigeria. We expect your name to bring good luck to Nigeria. We want to assure you we will deliver the south west the help of our people. I also want to assure you that results from the South west will be shocking in 2015.”
Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro explained that the President has done well and therefore deserves a second term to continue with his Transformation Agenda.
Senator Obanikoro said the party in the west has resolved to “work for the re-election of President Jonathan and we are committed in working for him so that he can continue with the good works he has started not only in the south west but in the country.”
