NNPP adopts Jonathan as its presidential candidate

The National Chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Dr Boniface Aniebonam on Thursday, announced the adoption of President Jonathan by his party as their Presidential candidate for the upcoming March 28 Presidential election.

This, the party said came after thorough consideration which led them to conclude that the President should continue the laudable projects he initiated.

Dr Boniface Aniebonam, while addressing a press conference, said that the President Jonathan was divinely ordained to rule the country, and that was evident in the fact that things have not degenerated completely in the country.

“We took critical looks at various Presidential candidates and decided to present Jonathan. Jonathan is a man who talks less and does more. He is known for humility,” Aniebonam said.

“If the President was not an act of God, a lot of things could have gone wrong in this country. We urge Nigerians to vote for the current administration for continuity.

“This is not by any means casting aspersions on the credibility of the other Presidential candidates, we only believe we should rather have continuity at this stage,” he said.

Aniebonam, further commended the recent offensive launched against the radical insurgents;

“Like the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, said recently, you do not change a Commander-in-Chief in the middle of war.

“We at the NNPP believe with current strategies now yielding positive results, there is no point in changing the president now. This is because the President has started a process which should not be truncated now,” he stressed.

He also expressed the possibility of the NNPP going into working alliances with some other political parties in other categories of election if the need arose.

“Consequently, we may in due course, before the elections, indicate few states where there are challenges which might prompt us to enter into strategic alliance with other political parties,” he added.
