A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State and national coordinator of Goodluck to Goodluck (G2G) 2015 project, Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (retd), has warned that it will be a disaster for the country if President Goodluck Jonathan is not re-elected for a second term.
Airhiavbere, who contested the 2012 Edo governorship election against Governor Adams Oshiomhole under the platform of PDP and also an aspirant for the 2016 governorship race in the state, lamented that the president’s achievements are sometimes being over shadowed due to politics, asserting that the Jonathan is receiving the backing of majority of Nigerians for a second term due to his sincerity in solving the nation’s problems.
According to him, “we are backing the re-election of President Jonathan because he is sincere and honest about fixing the problems of Nigeria. He has achieved a lot that people may be due to politics they don’t want to see it but he has achieved better than any President of this country despite the challenges he is facing today.
“That is why we are supporting him and not because he is a PDP leader. He means well for Nigeria and we don’t want this nation to be destroyed. Jonathan has the vision to fix Nigeria and Nigerians must support him for a second term. He is one President that has achieved in every sector of the economy so it will be a disaster if he refuses to come back as president and I am appealing to Nigerians to help so that he can come back, we don’t want this nation to be a disaster”, he said.
On his governorship ambition in 2016, Airhiavbere said “we are only focus now for the re-election of President Jonathan and after that we move to 2016 governorship in Edo state. I am in the race seriously and I believe that I am better equipped now to lead the people of my state”.
