Abuja - Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tony Anenih has begged the North to support the second term ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan, reports Leadership.
The support according to Anenih will strengthen the age-long alliance between the South-South and the North.
Anenih in statement in Abuja on Sunday, urged the North to consider the decades of cooperation given by the people of the South-South to candidates of the North and reciprocate the gesture with a renewed mandate for Jonathan.
He noted that while the north has the legitimate right to produce the next president, said the South-South zone would feel short-changed, if they were to be denied the opportunity to have a full complement of tenure.
