A political group, House to House Organisation, has disclosed that it has earmarked N19.5 million to purchase nomination form for President Goodluck Jonathan when he eventually declares to contest for re-election in 2015.
The group made the announcement when it paid a courtesy call on the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Wale Oladipo, in Abuja on Tuesday.
“We have saved about N19.5 million to purchase nomination form for President Jonathan once he declares,” said Ogidi Bara, the Director General of the Organisation.
Mr. Bara added that his organisation was ready to go from “house to house, wife to husband and do everything possible to sensitise the people on why Jonathan should continue”.
Responding, PDP scribe said it was in the interest of the nation for the president to contest the 2015 presidential election.
Mr. Oladipo stated that the ruling party was noted for internal democracy, its service towards the development of the nation and passion for humanity.
“PDP stands for progress and the transformation agenda of this present administration must be taken to the end. We know that our leader, the President, represents stability, he knows that his enormous power has to be exercised with moderation and a sledge hammer should not be used to kill a fly,” he posited.
Oladipo further criticized the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, for “promoting violence and lacking in internal democracy.”
“APC as far as I know is a drug that has been banned all over. The name also means Armoured Personnel Carrier, which is synonymous to violence.
Taking a swipe at former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu,, Oladipo said “Our party is not where a single man will sit in Lagos and decide who will be next governor. We follow due process and do the needful.”
