Lagos - The Igbo youths have claimed that they will not back President Goodluck Jonathan’s bid for re-election in 2015 if he does not fulfil what he promised in his 2011 campaign, AllAfrica reports.
Evang Elliot Uko, the President of Igbo Youth Movement (IYM), claimed that Jonathan did not appreciate the support he received from the Ndigbo in the 2011 elections.
“We expected massive industrial and infrastructural development. We are not seeing that. We thought he would keep his promises,” Uko said.
“We also want him to set up a committee to work out the modalities for the convening of a National conference to restructure Nigeria along the lines of true federalism. Promises made in 2011 must be kept before talk of second term."
