Publicity Secretary of the Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mr. Deinghan Macaulay on Sunday, January 4, 2015 said the opposition’s criticism of President Jonathan’s administration when juxtaposed with his achievements gives the President a fertile ground for achieving total victory at the Saturday, February 14, 2015 presidential election.

Macaulay, made the statement while addressing newsmen in Asaba saying: “Jonathan’s achievements in roads construction, the rebasing of the nation’s economy as the best in Africa, attracting investors and the conduct of free and fair elections in Ekiti and Osun States deprived the opposition parties viable means of criticising the president. The unfounded criticism of the opposition parties are indirectly campaigning for the President and come February, the electorate shall reward the PDP with another four years at the national and state levels.”

He further described President Jonathan as “an apostle of free and fair elections” who would not stop opposition from winning with evidence in Edo and Osun state, as well as the free and fair election in Ekiti.

He also named some of the President’s laudable achievements like the two automobile industries in Nnewi and Lagos, building of 61,000 housing units in the six geo-political zones and the upgrading of the Almajiri schools, Macaulay beckoned on Nigerians to come out en mass and re-elect President Jonathan so the resolutions made at the recently National Conference could be implemented.

Macaulay also commented on a statement attributed to the deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Frank Timi the people of Niger Delta would not support President Jonathan, describing it as “the greatest joke of the century”
