Deliver On Your Promises or Forget 2015, Yoruba Leaders Tell Jonathan
The Yoruba community leadership stated that it was unfortunate that Jonathan and Vice President Namadi Sambo were already planning on how to retain their positions beyond 2015, while they have failed to deliver their previous promises.
The chairman of the community in the 19 northern states and the FCT, Alhaji Mohammed Arigbabuwo, stated this when he received the leadership of Peace Revival and Reconciliation Foundation who paid him a courtesy call in his office in Kaduna yesterday.
According to Arigbabuwo, the Yoruba community in the 19 northern states stood firmly behind the president to ensure his victory in the 2011 presidential election in the hope and prayer that he would take the country to the promised land, but he has failed to deliver on his promises.
“Until he fulfils his promises to Nigerians, he is not going to get the support of the northern Yorubas come 2015,” he said. “It is disheartening to know that a president would promise the people and he will not deliver on his promises. We supported him in the 2011 elections but so far he has not delivered on his promises; so we are not going to give him our support until he delivers on his promises.”
Earlier, the leader of the foundation, Pastor Yohanna Buru, said they had come to solicit partnership with the Yoruba community in their struggle to ensure that peace reigns supreme in the state and Nigeria at large.
He stressed that the need to live together as brothers and sisters cannot be overemphasized and called on all and sundry to imbibe peaceful coexistence irrespective of tribe and religion differences.
