“Declare For Re-election Or We would Do It For You!”-Kinsmen To Jonathan

By on June 1, 2014

Prominent kinsman of President Goodluck Jonathan and erstwhile Security Adviser in Bayelsa State, Mr. Richard Kpodo, has asked the president to declare for reelection in 2015 or his kinsmen will be forced to do it for him.

Kpodo also alleged that the spate of bombings and increased violence by Boko Haram were intended to stop the president from seeking reelection.

Kpodo, who served under Jonathan’s administration in Bayelsa State, as Senior Special Assistant on Strategy and Policy Monitoring, said: “There is no better time for the president to declare than now.

“We have studied elected presidents from the time of the Second Republic to the military and discovered that the style of administration of Goodluck Jonathan is unique. He has remained calm despite provocation and temptation.”

He wondered why northern leaders have been at the forefront of attacking Jonathan’s administration after bungling many opportunities to develop the north in the past.

Kpodo called on Jonathan to shun the antics of Boko Haram and its sponsors and declare his intention to run in 2015 without further delay.
