“With the structure we are building in the south west presently, mobilizing 20 million people for President Goodluck Jonathan in this geo-political Zone is going to be a walk-over for us. This is in pursuit of our mandate of supporting good governance, having tested Mr. President over the last few years”, the statement said.
“We are convinced he could be trusted with our mandate for another term of four years, this explains why we are throwing our weight behind him for a second term, and the south west geo-political zone is our target, we are going to deliver this Zone for President Goodluck Jonathan come 2015’’, it said.
