National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof. Wale Oladipo, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan is the best candidate for Nigeria in the 2015 general elections.
Oladipo made the statement during the celebration of his 55th birthday in Ile-Ife, Osun, on Thursday.
The PDP scribe noted that Nigerians would want the continuation of the transformation agenda under President Jonathan, saying that PDP would be victorious in the February 14 polls.
Oaldipo stated that former Head of State, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari (rtd.) and All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, a 72 year-old, cannot bring about any change, compared to Jonathan, who he said is democratic.
The celebrant, who noted that his birthday ceremony was not meant for merry-making alone, said that the campaign for Jonathan’s re-election for a second term had begun in earnest.
According to Oladipo, Gen. Buhari had ruled this country with iron fist, used decrees at will, while the press were gagged.
He, therefore, appealed to the people to shine their eyes and cast their votes wisely during the forthcoming polls.
The PDP national scribe said that President Jonathan has done well in health, agriculture, education, manufacturing of motor car in Nigeria and other visible projects.
He added that the re-election of President Jonathan would benefit all and sundry in terms of people-oriented policies and programmes.
