The political machinery of former Vice
President Atiku Abubakar under the
umbrella body, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku
(AAA) and People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) in
six states in the south-west Nigeria has declared their
unwavering support for President Goodluck Jonathan
in the forthcoming presidential election.
Addressing reporters on Tuesday at a media briefing
in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, in south-west
Nigeria, the leader of the group, Bode Ajewole, said
their support was based on the readiness of President
Jonathan to implement the recommendations of the
2014 national conference, as being
demanded by the south-west region.

states and the Yar’adua political family in the APC,
SDP, PDM, LP and AP to support and vote for the
presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) and the incumbent president, Dr
Jonathan, in the March 28 presidential election.

members still remained in their various
parties, but hinted that the decision to join the PDP or
not would be coming after the elections.
The Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun
Mimiko, welcomed the members of the group, saying
their support was a very good thing for the Jonathan
campaign team.
Governor mimiko, who is also the coordinator of the
Jonathan/Sambo Presidential Campaign Group in the
south-west region, gave the assurance that the region
would deliver the highest votes for the president in
the election.
He expressed delight in the decision of the collectives
to support Jonathan, owing to the fact that they were
made up of genuine grassroots politicians that could
deliver.
