Why We Won’t Support Jonathan In 2015 – South South Leaders

The Niger Delta Elders Forum (NDEF) has said that President Goodluck Jonathan should not count on the support of people of the South-South geo-political zone in 2015 if he fails to address their demands. The elders, in statement in Port Harcourt, signed by chairman of the forum, Etubong Alphonsus Duke, and secretary, Apostle Nelson Baribote, expressed their disappointment in the incumbent administration.

The statement said that although all Nigerians massively voted for President Jonathan in 2011, his strongest support and largest votes came from the South-South, but frowned that the president had not rewarded the people’s love and loyalty. They cited the state of the East-West Road, the only road linking the oil-rich region with the rest of the country, and the poor performance of his key ministers from the region as some of the reasons for his poor rating with his people.
