APC, New PDP Reacts To Jonathan’s Claim of Being Under Pressure to Contest in 2015
The All Progressives Congress and the New Peoples Democratic Party have rubbished the claims by a Presidential Aide, Ahmed Gulak that President Goodluck Jonathan was under pressure to re-contest in the 2015 election .
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and his nPDP counterpart, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze told Punch that only those who do not wish Nigerians well would ask Jonathan to return to the poll.
According to Mohammed, he was not surprised at the claims because the President had already made his second term ambition known.
He said, “Gulak should stop insulting the intelligence of Nigerians. We all knew since 2011 that Jonathan was more concerned about 2015 than providing leadership. It is only the likes of Gulak who are mounting such pressures.”
Also reacting, Eze said only those benefiting from the government at the expense of Nigerians could have been putting such pressures on Jonathan to declare his intention.
He said, “Let Gulak show us who these Nigerians are. Certainly, not the Nigerian students who have spent four months at home because of ASUU strike, certainly not those who are suffering from this unprecedented level of insecurity and the scores of Nigerian youth who roam the streets without jobs.
“It must be people like Gulak who are putting such pressures.”
President Jonathan had through his special adviser on political matters, Ali Ahmed Gulak said, even Nigerians abroad are “burning in unquenchable desire to return to the country and cast their votes for the ruling PDP come 2015”.
“Since our last meeting, we have received various support groups being coordinated by the GSG. We have, as of today, 1665 groups. The last to visit was the Ochendo Solidarity Movement from Abia State.”
