Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan said one his priorities if re-elected on February 14 is to keep Nigeria together as one, despite the security challenges facing the country.

Jonathan, who spoke at the Rwang Pam Township stadium in Jos during a campaign rally, Monday, therefore appealed to the people of Plateau State to vote the PDP in all the elections as the state was the home of PDP and its people.

“I thank Plateau people for their commitment to ensure that PDP remains in power. Plateau is the home of PDP and PDP is the only party that is democratic and ensures that no one is intimidated,” he said.

“I signed the FOI bill to ensure freedom of speech, I will work hard to ensure freedom and peace in the country as keeping Nigeria one is a task all of us must undertake,” he said.

He also promised to end violence in the state and revive the agricultural sector, saying “If you give us your mandates in the next four years, I assure you that we will perform better.”

State Governor, Jonah Jang, who spoke earlier, reiterated the need to continue in the infrastructural development of the state and urged all to support the party’s candidates in the general elections.

Gyang Pwajok, the governorship candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming election also thanked the people for the opportunity to serve. He noted that the younger generation was ready to take the state higher in the next dispensation.
