Akure - Some notable Yoruba leaders have endorsed the candidacy of the President Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28 presidential election, reports The Sun.

The leaders, who met in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Thursday, said they are throwing their weights behind Jonathan because of the implementation of the report of the National Conference.

They noted that the only genuine change the nation needs at the moment is that of the constitution and not of personality at the helm of the country’s affairs.
