2011: Middle Belt youths back Jonathan

The Youths of the Middle Belt comprising Benue, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger and Plateau states and FCT have said President Goodluck Jonathan is qualified and has the absolute right to contest the 2011 presidential election like any other Nigerian from any part of Nigeria.

The group, under the aegis of Coalition of Middle Belt Youths, COMBY, in a statement by the National Coordinator, Aliyu Yusuf Ozovehe, said, “his being there as a President is not man-made but a divine arrangement.

“We should remember the statement credited to Governor Yuguda of Bauchi State that whoever is talking against the Presidency of Jonathan is challenging the will of God.”

The group called on all its members and indeed all Nigerians to “pray for the country at this period and ask God to personally intervene to give us a God fearing person who will have the interest of the entire nation at heart.”
