WARRI—AHEAD of the 2011 general elections, politicians have been called upon not to heat up the polity with lobbying or campaigning for who becomes the president in 2011 but rather give their support to the present administration to deliver good governance to the down-trodden Nigerian masses.

This call was made by a Pro-Jonathan group,  “Supporters of Goodluck Jonathan Good Governance,” which holds prayers and intercessory sessions for good governance  by the present administration of President Jonathan.

He also called on Nigerians to pray fervently for the present administration to perform creditably and position Nigeria better before  the comity of nations.

This was contained in a statement d by the National Coordinator of the group, Deacon Okezi Odugala.

According to the group “we should be offering  prayers for President Jonathan daily for God to direct him to deliver to Nigerians dividend of democracy and his promised on the power sector, electoral reforms, security, fight against corruption and massive infrastructural development.”

The group added, that it was only prayers that can take Nigeria from the wounds and put to shame the enemies of development, who have held the country down since independence.

It expressed  confidence in Jonathan, adding that he has  humble disposition, integrity with fear of God to deliver on his promises and believed that the president performances at the end of the remaining period before 2011 elections will speak volume for him to continue another tenure.

While advising political jobbers in the country to desist from inimical acts, Deacon Odugala stressed that President Jonathan is on a divine assignment by God and should not be distracted as the era of singing hosanna today and crucify him tomorrow for selfish gain is gone.

They commended the President for keeping to his promise by opening a face book page for Nigerians to reach him, contribute ideas as well as criticizing him constructively.
