Diaspora chapter of Abuja-based international advocacy group, the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN, has mobilised international support for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Coordinator of the TAN Diaspora, Mr George Chukwu, who led other members and volunteers to move round the Canadian cities, defying the harsh snowy weather to make their intensions known to the world said in Montreal that having laid such a firm and solid economic, political and globally celebrated political foundation for the nation in the last five years of his presidency, it would be ideal and very inarguable to allow President Jonathan consolidate within the next four years.
That any break at this critical time would amount to a big drawback and drain on reason and industry already put in the build-up these past years.
He said: “Nigeria’s presidency and leadership is neither a private corridor nor meant for a circle of friends or colleagues, but for statesmen of humane stature and transformation spirit. Those who have been consigned to history should remain there. We do not wish to recycle any more spent forces, giving a very odious impression that there are no more capable hands. And those with high propensity for bigotry and penchant for violence to go extinguish same somewhere else…”
He cautioned every Nigerian citizen to be guided by the unfolding events in the nation’s political experience to note that each person’s historical background would count in the future.
He stated that Jonathan’s transformation again which had positively impacted on all sectors of the economy had improved the standard of living of the electorate.
