Jonathan deserves a second term — PDP senatorial candidate

By Evelyn Usman

A senatorial candidate on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for Lagos West, Segun Adewale, has described allegation by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that President Goodluck Jonathan has not performed as mere propaganda, asserting that the President deserved a second term.

Adewale, who contested in 2011 for the lower legislative house, alleged that the last election was marred by rigging, even when it was glaring that he defeated his APC opponent, Lekan Adeola, then.

Speaking with journalists in Lagos, Adewale stressed the need for staff of the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, in the state to be impartial in its duty.

He alleged that what the opposition party normally did was to influence INEC, get the police and the Judiciary to do their bidding.
