A group that calls itself Ethnic Youth Leaders For Peace In Nigeria[EYLPN], has vowed to drag President Goodluck Jonathan into the 2015 Presidential election whether or not he wants to contest.
Addressing a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists[NUJ] Secretariat ,Utako, Abuja, this afternoon, President of the group, Comrade Edede Franklyne Maduabuchi, asserted that his group
Will henceforth lay siege at the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock, until President declares his interest in the Presidential race next year. He declared also that the group will organize a one hundred million man march in honour of the President when declares.
Speaking at the well attended press briefing, Maduabuchi boasted that “we are compelling him . We will block his office. If we block his office and prevent him from working for one week, he will be compelled to contest”.
Sounding a little sycophantic, the ethnic youth leader said “if not for constitutional limitation of terms, we would ask him to continue after 2019”. He advised President Jonathan’s critics to have a change of heart or face the wrath of his members.
According to him, “our candid advice to critics of President Goodluck Jonathan, is beware of their abusive and inflammatory statements capable of causing us our unity in Nigeria and accord respect to the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria irrespective of who occupies it”.
He added that “Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is ordained and appointed by God ,therefore detractors should get it into their scruples that they should not abuse persons in authority as it is contained in the Holy Books”.
Maduabuchi praised to high heavens, the performance of President Jonathan in the last four years of his being on the saddle. Hear him: “When we talk about President Jonathan we are talking about a visionary leader, a principled man whose leadership style has impacted positively on the lives of the masses.
“This is a President whose transformation agenda has improved the various segments of the nation’s existence, from education to agriculture, aviation, gender equality, electoral process, human rights, road construction, foreign policy, power and energy, healthy ,water and water resources, youth empowerment and poverty reduction and sports, for total well being of the people”.
He claimed that the President’s “aggressive policy to reform the power sector ,for instance, will translate into the surest path to gainful employment for the masses, hence a way to curb poverty, crime militancy and youth restiveness. He is very much aware that unemployment is a hydra-headed monster that can ravage a country”.
