President is your in-law, Patience Jonathan tells Anambra



First Lady Patience Goodluck yesterday
pleaded with the people of Anambra State
to vote for her husband in next month’s
presidential election because of his status
as their in-law.Mrs. Jonathan, who was on
President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign
team to the state, told PDP supporters at a
rally in Onitsha that her spouse deserves
their support if not for nothing else.
She described the PDP as a moving train
and urged those still in doubt to come on
board.The president himself said that his
administration had released N10billion for
the take off of the 2nd Niger Bridge,
N1.5billion of which was paid as
compensation to those whose properties
were demolished to make way for the
N130billion project.The president who had
earlier inspected the level of work on the
bridge, which links Onitsha with Asaba,
Delta State said: “I discovered that work is
really in progress as the access road that
will lead to the bridge that is about 3km
has been graded just to make sure that
there is access to the site.“I spoke with the
management of Julius Berger and they
assured me that the project will be
completed within 40 months.”He described
the bridge as critical to his
administration.Also addressing the rally,
the Southeast coordinator of the PDP
presidential campaign and former
governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, told
the people that most of the projects he
executed during his tenure were sponsored
by the President through the Millennium
Development Goals (MDG).National
chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu, said
PDP would remain grateful to the people of
Anambra for their patience, commitment
and dedication to the president.The leader
of the party in the state, Chief Chris Uba,
said the party was not leaving any stone
unturned in making victorious certain for
the PDP in the next month’s general
elections in the state.However, a PDP
leader in the state, Chief Okey Muo Aroh,
told the president to warn Governor Willie
Obiano over his threat to unleash security
operatives on PDP members who are
campaigning for election but whose names
are not listed by the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) as
contestants.The president later paid a
courtesy visit to the Obi of Onitsha, Alfred
Nnaemeka Achebe at his Ime-Obi palace
during which the traditional ruler urged
him to reconcile Governor Obiano and his
predecessor, Obi.The duo had fallen out
soon after Obiano’s assumption of office
and Obi’s defection from APGA to
PDP.Speaking, Governor Obiano said the
entire Anambra State irrespective of
political affiliations had decided to support
President Jonathan for a second term in
office as the state under his administration
has witnessed great re-birth and shall
support the President.Igwe Achebe thanked
President Jonathan for his vision and
transformation agenda.He said: “We want
to remind you of what you said when you
visited Ndi Igwe in 2011.You said that you
are PDP and PDP is you.“You also said that
you are APGA and APGA is you and we
want to stand by that by making sure that
there is a level playing field for all the
parties in the coming elections especially as
the people of the state bury their different
political parties to support you.”
