The National Commercial Tricycle and Motorcycle Owners’ Association (NCTMOA) has pledged to mobilize about 10 million votes for President Goodluck Jonathan ahead of the Saturday, March 28, 2015 presidential election.

Giving the assurance was the National President of NCTMOA, Sani Mohammed Hassan, who spoke on Thursday, February 19, 2015 at a pro-Jonathan rally put together by the group in Abuja.

At the rally which saw the motorcyclist and tricyclists riding a long convoy from the popular Kabusa junction through Galadima roundabout to Area 1, Garki, Hassan said the road show was a small way for the association to show its gratitude to President Jonathan for the good deeds he has done for the,.

He said:

We have over 9 million members that we are controlling in the country. Apart from that, we also have people we are partnering with in our transport sector like dealers, importers and the spare parts sellers and those that are selling food to our members.

Our mother-in-laws and our fathers-in-law, all of them are going to team up with the association and vote massively when the presidential election comes on March 28, for President Goodluck Jonathan.

By the grace of God, we are going to mobilise nothing less than ten million votes for him.

It is a good thing to show appreciation when somebody has done something good for you.

The Keke operators were having problem here and there before now and the President assisted us with a number of Keke that we distributed to all the states of the federation and that served as a big relief to all our members.

In most of the states, many of our members have been banned from operating and this made many of them to be off the roads. But the President has helped us to come back to the roads again. For  this, we really have to show appreciation to him.

A representative of President Jonathan who addressed the gathering, Jide Oluwasanmi, thanked the riders for their decision to support Mr. President, urging them to pick up their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) so as to vote massively for President Jonathan

He said:

President Jonathan has done well and he deserves a second term. His good job stands him out and I urge all of you to get your permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) and vote massively for President Jonathan.
