Abuja - Members of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) are set to embark on a protest to President Goodluck Jonathan’s hometown, Otuoke in Bayelsa State, reports Punch.

The protest is over the alleged refusal of the President to give them their share of election largesse which he promised them before the last presidential poll.

Gbenga Afeni, the party’s National Organising Secretary, who disclosed this on Monday, said the President allegedly promised to pay APGA some amount of money before agreeing to support Jonathan’s re-election.

He said 100 members from each state of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory were ready to march to Otuoke after Jonathan’s exit from Aso Rock to register their displeasure over the breach of agreement.
