*I will never disappoint you, Jonathan tells Ndigbo

By Tony Edike, Enugu

The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the South East geopolitical zone, Friday, unanimously urged President Goodluck Jonathan to re-contest for a second term in 2015 assuring him of their total support.

President Jonathan responding to the request assured Nigerians and the Southeasterners in particular that he would never disappoint them even though he said time was not ripe for him to declare whether to run or not.

At the well-attended Unity Rally of the PDP South East zone held at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, Friday, various speakers including the Chairman, South East Governors Forum and Abia State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji and other South East governors called on President Jonathan to re-contest the presidential poll in 2015.

They insisted that on no account should he reject their request for his re-election, stressing that they would not mind conscripting him if he refused to declare his intention to continue in office.

Addressing the rally, Governor Orji said that President Jonathan had performed very well to deserve a second term in office and should heed the call by the South East to seek re-election.
