Don’t come back to Niger Delta if you fail to run, MOSIEND tells Goodluck Jonathan
The Movement for the Survival of Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta (MOSIEND) has called on former President Goodluck Jonathan not to return to the Niger Delta if he fails to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The National President of MOSIEND, Kennedy Tonjo-West, said all the youth leaders in the region were in agreement that Jonathan must run.
He said Jonathan had the temperament and focus to manage the problems facing the country.
Tonjo-West in a statement in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Monday, said Jonathan was known for not being power hungry.
He said: “Jonathan’s competence to handle Nigeria problems more effectively and efficiently is not in doubt. He is not new in that environment and will fastly get things done before any other candidate.
“To this end, having extensively consulted far and wide with community youth leaders and critical ethnic nationality stakeholders in the region, we have their consent to call on former President Goodluck Jonathan to accept the clarion call by Nigerians to contest the 2023 election.
“It is obvious that while as human we have our plans and dreams about the country, God also have His plans to advance Nigeria as well. God is not finished with Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan concerning the leadership of our great country yet.
“The situation in Nigerian is worsening by the day and requires somebody with wealth of experience, detribalised and uncommon leadership attributes to fix the challenges. Nigerian can’t afford to misuse this opportunity to stabilize the country.
“Jonathan has been there, he has a clear roadmap to bail us from this quargmire we find ourselves. We will appreciate all our ministers, governors across the party divide to draw wisdom from Sen Bala Mohammed decision to step down if Jonathan finally decide to contest.”
