Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has called on Nigerians to give President Goodluck Jonathan the kind of support they gave to him in 2011 which ensured that he emerged victorious at the presidential elections, stressing that the President has good intentions for Nigerians.
Uduaghan, who made this known at a Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders meeting in Asaba, the Delta State capital, noted that the activities of Boko Haram and the industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had impacted negatively on the Jonathan administration.
According to the Delta State governor, the terrorist activities of Boko Haram and the industrial action by members of ASUU were posing serious challenges to governance in the country; however, he added that most of the demands of the striking varsity lecturers had been met “except there is something else behind it”.
While giving assurance that the Federal Government was tackling the issues of Boko Haram, Uduaghan appealed to Nigerians to rally round the President.
“I appeal to every zone in our country to give President Jonathan the support we gave him during his elections in 2011,” Uduaghan said, asserting that Delta State is a PDP state. “We are solidly and firmly behind President Goodluck Jonathan”, he added.
He also stressed that President Jonathan meant well for Nigeria and had engaged in programs that would make the country better.
