Umuahia - All is now set for the inauguration of President Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 presidential campaign for the South-East geo-political zone in Umuahia, the Abia State capital on Friday.
Announcing the arrangements for the campaigns, Governor Theodore Orji implored all Abians, people of the South-East zone and Nigerians to come out en mass at the Umuahia Township Stadium, venue of the flag off .
Orji, who is the Chairman of South-East Governors Forum noted that the entire Abia state and South-East would vote for Jonathan and all Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in the 2015 general elections, because of the numerous achievements of Jonathan’s administration for Nigeria and the people of the South-East.Also read: Jonathan holds campaign in Enugu
He assured Ndigbo that whatever Jonathan failed to do for them in his first tenure due to inevitable constraints and distractions he had to contend with, he would accomplish them in his second tenure.
Orji advised those who still have doubts in their minds that Jonathan would win the 2015 elections to have a re-think, and join the Jonathan winning team, which already has a solid structure on-ground, saying that Jonathan would win the entire South-East states.
He said “Jonathan will excel in his second tenure. He would give us(Igbo) preference and the prevailing problems of Nigeria would be easy for him to solve than they will be for the man (Buhari), who will take one term to study Nigerian files before asking for a second tenure tosolve the problems there in. Abians have no problems with Jonathan,because Abia is a PDP state.”
Orji, who is also Chairman of Jonathan’s campaign organisation in the South East, further called on all Abians to vote for OkezieIkpeazuand PDP candidates in next month’s general elections, who he said emerged through what he described as “transparent party primaries”.
He pointing out that Ikpeazu was chosen for peace and justice to reignin Abia state.
“APC has no future for Nigeria, especially the Igbo. If the party has any hope for Ndigbo, why did they not bring out Rochas Okorocha as the running mate to MuhammaduBuhari in this 2015 election?
I am going to the National Assembly, Abuja to represent my people. AndI vow to represent you better.
The greatest legacy I am bequeathing to Abia is peace and security.”
