Taraba youth back Jonathan for re-election

14 August 2014, 20:35

Abuja - Youth in Taraba State called on leaders from the north to desist from allegedly frustrating President Goodluck Jonathan's tactics against terror as well as his presidential ambitions for 2015.

They thus called on the Northern Elders Forum to desist from allegedly threatening the President but "throw their weight behind him" and support his initiatives and ambitions.

The youth, represented by their coordinator, Prince Aboki Bayonga Stephen, called on Jonathan not to be deterred from re-contesting for the presidency next year.

"We have collectively endorsed President Godluck Ebele Jonathan to re-contest Faye 2015 presidential election," said Stephen.

It is reported NEF called on President Goodluck to address the present security challenges and rescue the abducted Chibok girls or "forget re- contest next year's presidential election."

The youths observed that the issue of insurgents was not only in Nigeria, but the world at large.

They reiterated their readiness to mobilize youths from the "nooks and crannies of the country" in support of the presidential ambition of the President Jonathan in 2015.
