Abuja –Major General Lawrence Onoja, the former military governor of Plateau State, says that he believes that President Goodluck Jonathan is entitled to a second term and that it is unlikely that the next president will come from the North, Leadership reports.

Speaking on the topic of the presidency, Onoja said that every group had the right to campaign for power but the middle belt believe that Jonathan deserved a second term as president.
