Group Condemns Removal of Sambo’s Picture from Jonathan’s Billboards, Supports Jonathan/Sambo For 2015
The ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan to return to the villa in 2015 has continued to receive boost, this time around from a group known as the Youth Development Transformation and Sustainable Peace in Nigeria, YODETSIN.
The youth group has thrown its support and backing for President Goodluck Jonathan and Namadi Sambo in 2015.
Speaking with Journalists in Abuja recently, National Deputy Leader of the group, Engr. Ayuba Micheal Auta said; “We came to create awareness because we are seeing the dividends of democracy under the current administration. We have seen the challenges of governance and irrespective of these challenges the administration has not lost focus but has made sure it restored the countries past glory.
Speaking further, Auta said; “There is no sector that the administration of Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and Arc Namadi Sambo has not affected. That is why we created this organisation to come together and campaign for the continuity of this administration. Lack of continuity is the reason why the country is not moving forward. We believe in the administration and we believe in the continuity of this administration.”
According to the group: “We have seen the hostility from the northern part of the country against Dr. Goodluck Jonathan’s presidency in 2015, but we have taken it as our responsibility to educate the northern youths that such opposition is borne out of selfishness.
“However, we have also noticed in many of the advertorials campaigning for the continuation of this administration in 2015 by many NGOs, projecting only President Jonathan without including the vice president, Namadi Sambo.
“The northerners are complaining that the persistent and deliberate exclusion of Sambo may be a confirmation of the plot to drop him as vice in 2015.”
It added that: “We want to make it clear that the followers of the vice president are not happy with the way the 2015 presidential election campaign, projecting only President Jonathan is going.
“There is this feeling that Jonathan maybe hatching secret agenda to scheme out Sambo and replace him with another northerner.
“We have visited virtually every part of northern Nigeria and I can tell you that the feelings are the same. Many of them are willing and have even indicated interest to vote for Jonathan in 2015 despite the insecurity in that part of the country, but on the condition that he retains Namadi Sambo.”
“So many people, especially the followers of the vice president in the north are complaining that all the posters and billboards are not carrying the photograph of the vice president. I want to assure you that it is only one ticket that brought them to office. People should not give the opposition room to criticise the president,” the group said.
“Presently there are so many NGOs canvassing for the continuity of the Jonathan-Sambo government. But I want to point out that all the groups are carrying the posters and billboards of President Jonathan without Vice President Sambo.
