Nigeria’s Information minister, Mr Labaran Maku has yesterday revealed that President Goodluck Jonathan will gain 95 per cent of votes from the state in the 2015 presidential election.
He said this yesterday to media men after PDP’s stakeholders meeting in Akwanga Nassarawa state.
He said Jonathan has helped Nassarawa state over the years and even helped to give the state a university, a Central Bank building, Court of Appeal, Federal Secretariat, roads and bridges.
“If you look at what is happening in Nigeria today, there is no reason for the people of Nigeria not to rise in support of Mr President.
“If you look at what this president has done in Nassarawa State, in 2015 the president should expect 95 per cent of the votes in the presidential election in Nassarawa State.
“As you have seen here, the youth are saying it must be Goodluck, the women are saying it must be Goodluck, the elders are saying it must be Goodluck.
“It is clear to every Nigerian that if election is conducted today, the president will take 70 per cent of the votes in the south, what we saw in Ibadan was very clear,” he said
He went on to say that anyone in the state who believes in the rotation of presidency , should allow the president serve his eight years and complete the south south’s remaining four year term.
Maku went on to make note that the South-South had never ruled Nigeria before and therefore deserve to hold the power, he said after 2019 power will return to the North.
Maku then told the stakeholders to come together and support GEJ against opposition parties and help PDP clinch the 2015 presidential ticket again.
President Jonathan had gotten his presidential position when as vice president, then President Umaru Musa Yar’adua dies in office in 2010.
A year laterhe sealed his place as president after he won the presidential election organized by INEC.
