Ruling party endorses Jonathan presidency

21 June 2013, 08:01

Abuja - The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) passed a vote of confidence in President Goodluck Jonathan.

On Tursday, Senator Ibrahim Mantu moved the motion of a vote of confidence which all members of the National Executive Committee unanimously adopted.

The party commended Jonathan’s “resolute and decisive" tackling of Nigeria’s security challenges which, it said, had curbed terrorism and insurgency in the country.

PDP applauded the ongoing reforms and development in the country, especially those in the agricultural, aviation, transportation, and education sectors, saying that it was apparent that  Jonathan’s Agenda for National Transformation was bearing fruit.

“The President is discharging his mandate to the appreciation of Nigerians that overwhelmingly voted for him in the 2011 general elections.

“It is therefore in view of the above that members of the National Executive Committee of our great party do hereby pass a vote of confidence on the President,” the PDP motion stated.

The motion further endorses Jonathan's prospects for a second national presidential term in the 2015 general election.
