The South East geo-political zone’s continued support for the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan is borne out of their belief in the indivisibility of Nigeria and the survival of democracy.
This was the view of Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State in Umuahia, weekend, who said President Jonathan’s emergence marked a remarkable turn-around in the Nigerian political landscape because it has become the bastion of hope for equity.
The governor’s views were contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Public Communication, Mr. Ben Onyechere, who said: “The open door policy of Mr. President, in conjunction with his even distribution of resources and amenities, has opened a new vista in the operationalization of our democratic culture which will stand the test of time as it will also serve to promote unity.
“I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the socio-economic trends in the polity of this country could not have been better due to his deliberate method of amenability and flexibility, not withstanding skirmishes and agitation of some members in the ruling party for more recognition. It is on record that the style of governance by Mr. President has gained popularity internally and internationally because of his application of intellectual sensibility where patience is allowed to thrive over tribulation.”
