BENIN — AHEAD of the 2015 presidential election, a political pressure group, comprising youths from the Niger Delta region, yesterday, kicked off campaign for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Youths and Students Matters, Mr Jude Imagwe, who inaugurated the body, Consolidation Movement, said that President Jonathan’s achievements so far in government will guarantee him success despite the opposition in some quarters.
He boasted that President Jonathan’s achievement in the economy and other sectors, have surpassed those of previous presidents, adding that those fighting Jonathan’s re-election were “fighting for their selfish interests and not those of other Nigerians.”
Urging Nigerians to disregard what he described as the “antics of mischief makers,” he said that the mandate of the group was to work earnestly towards the re-election of President Jonathan in 2015.”
