Lagos - Deputy Chairperson of the Finance Committee of the People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization, Dr Ngozi Olejeme, has applauded the role of the South-West leaders in the political development of the country.
She described their endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan for the upcoming general election as a positive development in the country’s democracy.
“South-West leaders deserve a pat on the back for working with President Jonathan towards moving the zone to the mainstream of national politics in 2015,” Olejeme said in Abuja as she campaigned for the re-election of Jonathan.
“President Jonathan is pragmatic and truthful,” she said.

She expressed delight and satisfaction with the degree of determination Jonathan exhibited to move the country forward.
“Nigeria is divided into languages, different religious structures and different tribal and ethnic structures. President Jonathan held the country together very successfully. He created a culture of inclusion. This is a legacy that we need to consolidate and institutionalize,” Olejeme said.
She thus urged Nigerians to re-elect Jonathan.
“President Jonathan is responsible, transparent and accountable. He is managing the country’s resources and ensuring efficient and effective functioning of all political and socio-economic infrastructures. President Jonathan is active and open-minded.
"He has sound economic policies and will continue to promote an environment of enduring peace, progress and development. He will continue to provide meaningful, sustainable and dignified employment to the youth,” Olejeme said.
