Middle Belt Forum declares support for Jonathan for 2015

Goodluck Jonathan

The forum met with the president on Tuesday.

The Middle Belt Forum has said it will support President Goodluck Jonathan if he decides to declare for a re-election in 2015.

The group stated this after a closed door meeting with the President on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa. Abuja.

The meeting is holding weeks after a joint group of the Middle Belt/ South-South delegation also met with Mr. Jonathan behind closed doors.

Addressing journalists after meeting with the President, the group led by former governor of Plateau State, Solomon Lar, said it was disciplined and will not kick-start any 2015 campaign for Mr. Jonathan but would not hesitate to do so if the need arises. His view was supported by a former Minister of Information and Secretary of the Forum, Jerry Gana; and the Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang, who accompanied the delegation.

“South South Forum is the zone of the President; so, if they have started making the noise, it is good because he is their President. Ours is to give support for the good of Nigeria. But you don’t start shouting before the man says this is where I am going. Supposing he says he doesn’t want to go? So, when he talks, if people are supporting, we shall come out to support him,” Mr. Jang said.

Mr. Gana, remarking on the issues discussed with the president, said the session was designed for exchange of ideas with the president.

“The interactive session pointed out a number of problems at stake, particularly the security challenges. So many people have lost their lives, property and suffered tremendously and we are expecting that the government, through the processes already in place, would ensure fair and just compensation where appropriate,” he said.

    These idiots from Plateau state are begging for crumbs in Abuja even when their subjects are being slaughtered in Langtang local government of the state. Enough of this rubbish from this expired politician called Solomon Lar who has lost relevance within the PDP.
