A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, Prince Bodi Ererebo, has expressed optimism that the current wave of insecurity in the country will not affect the conduct of the 2015 general elections as it would be over before the end of the year.
He said this yesterday in Abuja at the fund raising/inauguration ceremony of the National executives of ‘Destiny 2015’, a pro-Goodluck Jonathan group.
Ererebo, who is the National Chairman of the Destiny 2015, said members of the executives cut across the six geo-political zones of the country.
He further said he was confident the government will soon rescue the abducted Chibok school girls.
“Insecurity won’t be a problem in 2015. I can tell you that between now and December the security challenge would be solved. Also by the middle of next month we are hopeful that the Chibok girls will be released. All these would make the coming 2015 general elections free, fair and credible”, he said.
Responding to allegations that President Jonathan’s administration lacks the political will to combat corruption, he said: “People will have one thing or another to say about Jonathan. But I can tell you that Jonathan is handling the issue of corruption better than any other government”.
Ererebo called on the president to heed the calls of his supporters to seek re-election in 2015.
