Jonathan lacks moral right to campaign in Niger Delta - Rivers APC
Rivers State chapter oof the All Progressives CongreCongress (APC) has said President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lack the moral right to cacampaign in the Niger Delta for the 2015 gegeneral elections.
The party in a presspres statement signed by its interim state chchairman, Dr Davis Ikanya, said the total and deliberate neglect of the reregion by the PDP-led federal governmentgov under the watch of Jonathan who is from the region which gagave him the highest number of votes from the area in 2011, disqualifies Jonathan from campaigning in the Niger Delta.
“Certainly, President Jonathan and the PDP have lost every moral right to come and ask the people of the Niger Delta for their votes in 2015 considering the wickedness they have exhibited towards the people of the region.
“Even though they lack shame, President Jonathan and PDP should for once respect themselves and stay away from the Niger Delta since even his kinsmen in Bayelsa State have rejected him for disappointing them. This fact was made clear by the immediate past Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, who during his solidarity visit to Governor Rotimi Amaechi, last weekend, declared that most Bayelsans are frustrated with the Jonathan administration and want change even though the President is from the state,” the party stated in the statement.
The party commended Sylva for having the courage to speak the truth despite his blood relationship with President Jonathan and congratulated him on his emergence as the leader of APC in Bayelsa State.
The statement added: “We in Rivers APC look forward to collaborating with Chief Sylva and other progressives in Bayelsa and throughout the country to sweep away the evil PDP government that has brought only misery to the Niger Delta and to Nigerians at large.”
