GEJMr Yinka Taiwo, the Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state on Saturday expressed optimism that Nigerians would vote massively for President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming presidential election.

Speaking at his Iseyin residence, Taiwo based the optimism on Jonathan’s performance in the last six years of his administration.

He said that the giant strides recorded in so many areas of governance would convince Nigerians to vote for continuity of the Jonathan-Sambo administration.

“Objective minded individuals know well that the administration has done well in many spheres and I have no iota of doubt that they will return us to power.

“Just yesterday (Friday), the president commissioned the Olorunsogo II Power Plant, which will generate about 750mw of electricity to make life better for us all.

“In agriculture, farmers are happily getting free fertilizers and seedlings without middle-men. Our hospitals are working again and foreign medical trips have been reduced”, he said.

According to the party chairman, many universities have been established while the existing ones are being upgraded to render qualitative education that will make our graduates competitive globally.

Taiwo, who said the best thing that had ever happened to Nigeria, was the coming on board of Jonathan, urged well-meaning Nigerians to vote for PDP.

“Our party is not that of any individual, but for the whole nation and by the whole nation.

“We are public-spirited and we are focused on our journey of transforming Nigeria. We are not driven by selfish interests and Nigerians know that”, he said,

The chairman also urged people of the state to cast their votes for the party’s standard bearers in governorship and other elective positions. (NAN)
