Jonathan Set to Declare for 2015 as Presidency Re-strategise, Restructure Campaign Groups
President Goodluck Jonathan appears to be warming up to declare his intention to declare his intention for the 2015 general election anytime soon.
Although, the president has consistently refused to state his mind as far as the 2015 election is concerned, activities and body language around him indicates that the declaration is just a matter of time that may come soon.
One of such activities is the presidency’s commencement of the re-appraisal of its strategies with the inaugurated a committee to restructure the umbrella organisation of group supporting the president’s ambition.
Special adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufai Alkali, inaugurated the GSG reorganisation committee, stressing that it will commence screening and evaluation of all Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and groups supporting President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 elections.
The committee, which comprises an 11-man special GSG re-organisation committee and headed by Gen. A.T. Ibrahim (rtd), is to study all issues concerning the organisation and propose a reorganisation structure that will enhance the PDP-led government’s position for 2015.
Underscoring the import of the committee and the task ahead of 2015, Alkali said: “As 2015 approaches, we note that the circumstances and fundamentals facing us is somewhat different; the opposition is different; the political landscape is different, the players are different and the issues are different.
“Therefore, to succeed in 2015, there is a great need to re-appraise our strategies and the structure of the umbrella organisation (GSG) that helped us to victory in 2011.”
The committee has 10 days to submit its report.
In addition to the inauguration of the special committee, Prof. Alkali informed Nigerians and members of all NGOs and groups, whether new or old, anywhere in Nigeria or the Diaspora that is supportive of President Jonathan towards 2015 to participate in the registration and evaluation exercise being conducted by his office across the six geo-political zones and the federal capital territory (FCT).
