2011: Group faults US endorsement of Jonathan

By Tony Edike

ENUGU — A group, the Society for Preservation of Rotation Convention, SPRC, yesterday, described the United States of America’s support for President Goodluck Jonathan for 2011 presidential election as dangerous and unwarranted.

Rising from its inaugural meeting in Enugu, weekend, the group strongly condemned the statement credited to the US Under Secretary for Democracy and Global Affairs, Maria Otero, to the effect that the US will back President Jonathan for 2011 presidential election on the assurance that the election would be free, fair and credible.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, the SPRC reminded the US government that President Jonathan, who deliberately rejected and abandoned the Uwais Report, “is grossly deficient of the political will to guarantee free and fair polls in 2011.

“How can free poll be achieved without the critical legal infrastructure, which the Uwais Report represents?”
