Accord Party Adopts President Jonathan As Their Presidential Candidate

Must read

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Accord Party (AP) on Friday, February 6, 2015 announced its adoption of President Goodluck Jonathan as its presidential candidate in the forthcoming presidential election.

Making the announcement via a press conference at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, the National Secretary of the party, Adisa Oladapo Nureni was quoted saying: “We (Accord Party) wish to associate ourselves with those in this country who are saying a tacit no to the growing moves to shift the date of the elections.

“As a political party which has sampled the mood of our numerous candidates and supporters nationwide, a polls shift in our opinion will only prolong the suffering of the masses without necessarily changing the political balance existing between the two major contenders for the Presidential election.

“We are therefore of the opinion that INEC should receive recommendation for being proactive on the issue of PVCs distribution and for insisting that timetable for the elections is not tampered with.’’

On the adoption of President Jonathan as its presidential candidate, Nureni said President Jonathan has made evident his resolve to transform Nigeria, in spite of the threat of insurgency the country is currently facing: “The mandate to enter into talks with the PDP was borne out of the motivation of our numerous candidates most of whom crossed over to our party from the PDP and who also believe that President Jonathan remains a better candidate for the Presidential elections and deserve to be supported by Accord.

“His administration has promoted and preserved the corporate entity of the Federal Republic Republic of Nigeria; The economy under his watch has witnessed appreciable growth; His transformation agenda is making a desirable impact in transforming the nation’s infrastructure.

“He is giving his all in the fight against insurgency in the Northeastern part of Nigeria and has effectively rallied the entire country into seeing the terrorists as enemies of the country among other reasons.”
