PDP shuts out other candidates, adopts Jonathan for re-election

Ahead of its presidential primaries scheduled for December 6, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has adopted President Goodluck Jonathan as its sole candidate for the 2015 election.

The National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party took the decision Thursday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

The position follows a similar decision by the PDP governors’ forum and the party’s Board of Trustees, BOT. The two organs had earlier endorsed the president on Wednesday.

The decision means no candidate, except Mr. Jonathan, can seek to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of the PDP.

At Thursday’s meeting, the governor of Niger state, Muazu Aliyu, who was first to speak, told the meeting that all PDP governors had in their meeting on Wednesday “unanimously without any reservation decided to endorse the sole candidature of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 election”.

Mr. Aliyu also called on the Jigawa state Governor, Sule Lamido, to stand up and recognise the decision of the governors.

Mr. Lamido stood up and nodded his head in agreement with his Niger state colleague.

Mr. Lamido had earlier rejected the adoption of Mr. Jonathan by the North West PDP, as he is reported to be nursing a presidential ambition.

But the decision of the governors, the party’s BoT and the entire party appears to have put paid to the Jigawa State governor’s ambition.

A spokesperson of the BoT, Shuaibu Oyedokun, also informed the NEC that the board, regarded as the conscience of the party, has also unanimously adopted Mr. Jonathan as the PDP’s sole candidate.

In a brief remark, the Senate President, David Mark, informed the gathering that if there is any arm of government that is interested in continuity, it is the legislature.

“At the PDP Caucus of the National Assembly, we have decided that a sitting and performing president should be given a chance to continue to perform even better‎,” Mr. Mark said.

The motion for the adoption of Mr. Jonathan was moved by the former national chairman of the party, Bello Haliru.
In his speech, Mr. Haliru said the PDP had an important decision to take, arguing that “we have never taken a wrong decision before”.

“We cannot change a winning formula that have been working for us since 1999,” he said. “In PDP we have a tradition of queuing up behind our leaders. President Jonathan has performed creditably well‎ as attested to by all the organs of the party.

“Therefore, for the good of Nigeria and for the good work that the PDP is doing for the country, I move that the NEC endorse the candidature of President Goodluck Jonathan as the party’s candidate in the 2015 election,” Mr. Haliru said.

‎The motion was seconded by a former governor of old Anambra state, Jim Nwobodo.

Thereafter, the national Chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu, put the question to members who unanimously agreed ‎that the Mr. Jonathan be retained as the sole candidate of the party for the 2015 election.

The meeting is still in progress and the president is yet to respond to his endorsement‎ by his party.

The party had earlier fixed its presidential primaries for December 6.

    This is a welcome development that will avoid unnecessary waste of resources, human and material as is the custom of Nigerian pre-election practice

    There is Honor even among…thi*ves.
    While I have NO Interest in what goes on in that party called PDP, it’s just normal that if a sitting president desires a second shot, he should be obliged by his party. The minority have their say, but the majority have their way.
    If u can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen/party..like the (5) Rebels.

    That aside, I THOUGHT JONA SAID HE WILL NOT BE RUNNING FOR ANOTHER TERM?????

      “As it is now, what we have does not have what it takes to drag Nigeria along;
      and anything can happen anytime from now. Right-thinking people must rise
      to rescue the helm of that ship from Jonathan’s hand before he wrecks the
      entire nation”.

      “I am of the firm belief and conviction that there will be no election
      in 2015. I am of the firm belief that this house of cards will collapse before
      2015. Under Jonathan’s leadership, Nigeria as a whole has become a titanic ship
      on sail to hit the iceberg and sink”.

    ‘I am moved to write about the current state of affairs in Nigeria.

    My first inclination was to write to the President (Jonathan) but

    since all letters to him seem to elicit only open derision and
    even more stupidity from his inner circle, i have decided to
    address my letter to a group [Boko Haram] also currently causing

    Nigerians a lot of pain and agony that may actually have more sense

    than the country’s leadership.”

    Jonathan did burn a hole in the national treasury too; depleting the $30b plus

    spared and left in the Sovereign Wealth Fund account that’s managed overseas.

    lets have a mature chat here on why people called goodluck jonathan a failure, please no insults. In my honest opinion from what he inherited apart from the insecurity in the north east this man has performed. let the games begin

    • Ay

      I respect your opinion and depending on whom you truly are, it’s easy to find out why GEJ and his successive PDP government are failures? If you arent one of those who have unlimited access to our money, tell your wife to give you prices list of basic commodities items four years ago and compare them to what you have today. As a man how much do you pay for fuel, light, clothing, accommodation and beer four years ago and how much do you pay now? This is simple and practical economics. All those cheering and hailing GEJ for his good performance (especially average salary earners like me) surely know the truth in their quiet times. Let’s continue deceiving ourselves until we cant be deceived no more

      • the truth

        first of all i am not a pdp member nor apologists, everything i have i give credit to my hardwork and god almighty. it is clear that if this is your yardstick for failure then you are totally wrong. let me ask you a question if thats how you judge performance, y was 505 car in 1970 $450 and now what is the cost. It is impossible to have the cost of items remain stagnant. in 10 years time those prices would even be higher because there is elasticity and what we call minimum wage. remember minimum wage was $6,000 nigeria 13 years ago. how much is it now>?its just like telling me we bought a bag of rice $170 in 1999 and in 2014 it should be the same. tell me which country in the world has a stagnant price of items for 20 years now. what you bought for 3 dollars 20 years ago is now valued at 30 dollars.

        • Chris1408

          Well democracy is a game of numbers. If majority feel GEJ is the messiah, cool. In my book, the man as well as other current politicians in Nigeria are failures. They need to sit aside and let new hands try running it. Let’s have true democracy not the current LOOTUCRAZY

    • Chris1408

      Fellow country man, there’s not enough room to list them. But let’s take the basics. Corruption is one of our biggest problems in Nigeria. Corruption has bloomed under GEJ. Nigeria was better in every facet of life before GEJ administration. Also he’s done two terms. That’s another discussion entirely. Why don’t you list his achievements? Like you said, let’s be objective, it’s 2014. Countries are talking about LTE and super high speed rail. China and South Korea are building ships and aircraft. Nigeria was ahead of them in the 60s. Please list GEJ achievements and start with the fight against corruption.

      • the truth

        what was the global corruption rating index for nigeria before jonathan. nigeria was listed as the most corrupt country under obasanjo for 5 of his 8 years in office. according to transperency international global index rating as of 2013(the latest) we are 144th out of 175 countries. we moved from bottom last to 144th.although that is not a good omen but there is improvement.

        Agriculture: according to the world bank index of 2014 nigeria has had its lowest import of agricultural imports since 1973, while our exports have reached an all time high.
        You talked about rail. do you know for the first time since before the civil war we have a functioning rail line from the north to the south.
        do you know hyundai has started production of nigerian cars, excluding peugeots plant in kaduna. honda would move in 2015. just a few points

        • Ibrahim

          On corruption the improvement is not during this administration. as Nigeria was 133th in 2009. So what this shows is that we deteriorated not improve during this government. Go and check the year by year corruption index not only give that of 2013 so that we see the trend. Everyone knows corruption is worse during this administration even the achievement recorded initially during OBJ is being eroded.

        • Chris1408

          ROTFL, Hyundai is south Korea, Peugeot is French, Honda is Japan. Tell me made in Nigeria. Rail my brother, not used locomotive from India. We are talking about fully functional rail system. Have you and you family traveled in this rail? To vacation? Food supply is from people like me working our behind off with no government input. We are still farming like our great grand parents did, manual labor. Fertilizer prices are higher than ever. It costs more to bring farm equipment in. I can go on forever.

          • the truth

            does it mean they are not made in nigeria cars. does it mean honda doesn’t produce made in america cars since they are japanese. honda has a huge plant in Torrence, california just some miles from compton and they employ the youths there, toyota a japanese company has a plant in san antonio texas where they produce made in america cars. so what were you saying? do you think transformation would occur in 5 years, it comes with policies that gradually makes improvement. so if no improvement has been made why are we importing less and exporting more agricultural products? the rail system is functional sir, as a matter of fact i have relatives who have rode the kano- port harcourt rail on multiple occasions. please it takes time, nobody should tell you they would change nigeria in 1 day, its a lie.obama said change but he would be the first one to tell you it takes time, the jobless rate is still high but steady in the states, unemployment benefts are still high, his tenure may not achieve his aspirations but he has set the groundwork for the next president

          • Chris1408

            GEJ policies are killing Nigerians. You can’t have viable industries without steady power supply. Did you read what Ford chairman for Africa said about building plants in Nigeria. The current political class has failed. Our problems are plenty, let’s not compound it with bad leadership. They’ve caused more than enough problems for us. GEJ policies are detrimental to Nigeria success. Solve corruption, half of the problems are solved. Let GEJ to to the creeks with Ms Pat. Their time is up

    PDP on president Ebele Jonathan watch is a symbol of autocracy and does not represent any democratic institution as there is no internal democracy mechanism in the manners PDP adopt in picking its elective offices-candidates.

    Are there no intersted PDP members who may be aspiring to run as Nigeria president in PDP?President Ebele Jonathan has been in office now for almost five years with no visible structure to show in security of life and property for Nigerians,no regular power,teaching hospitals are mere consulting clinics and unemployment of graduates is growing unchecked.

    Let president Ebele Jonathan spell out his achievement in roads construction as Lagos to Ibadan to Ife to Aure and Benin
    roads remain death trap.Where is the visible structure except massive corruption with another S9.3 million dollars now confiscated by South African custom and exercise from president Ebele Jonathan errand boys who smuggled the funds into South Africa undeclared.

    • Chris1408

      In 2014, we shouldn’t be talking about road construction, power generation, water supply and other basic infrastructures. Unfortunately we are still talking about it and these worthless politicians can’t even deliver on it. They steal our money to buy houses in countries where they have these infrastructures and enjoy it with their families. 2014, Nigeria can’t boast of an hospital. Research and development center, or even make simple tooth pick. Our military can make bullets. We import everything. We are corrupt beyond words can describe.

        We shouldn’t be all things being equal but we are because that is the reality on ground.This administration or GEJ is not the person that destroyed all the roads in place cos there were hardly any or they are mostly in disrepair.

          • ifebuche

            You see you addressed nothing here. Even if we have all the materials and money to do all the roads in Nigeria we cannot finish it in 10years cos you need to survey, clear site, cast, vibrate, allow to set and so on and so forth which will take time ordinarily and normally. Even Abacha wants a progressive Nigeria so saying here is as good as saying nothing. All developing world are so cos they are still developing the basic stuff in their areas. Get that into your head. It can only be developed together not this cat pulling it from this side and the other dragging it from the other. Criticism and opposition is good and helps when done appropriately but what we see today is downright evil and destructive of the little effort being made.

How long did Governors Fashola, Okorocha, Oshiomhole, Fayemi, and even Akpabio, need to impact with their leadership qualities? What did Dumbo achieve as Gov. of Bayelsa? On Nigeria, he’s a bombing failure the whole world knows and have said. He’s going into the soakaway in 2015, your online rants will not save him.

      “Any attempt by Goodluck Jonathan to run for the 2015 election would plunge this country
      into total anarchy or revolution because the people feel betrayed by a president who told them
      that he would run for one term and thereafter return power to the North.

    Is Prophet T. B Joshua a ‘man of God’?

    Now, before you become a man of God, you must first become a Christian. And you don’t become a Christian because you are born into some church-going family – even if your father was a pastor. Joshua’s testimony about his call to ministry is that when he was born, there was something strange about him and some seer or something told his mother he was a special child with special mission. And as a child, he began to perform some signs.

    The truth every-Bible Christian knows is that no one is born a Christian or prophet in the New Testament dispensation! You are not Christian because you have an English name. Let’s get that clear. To become a Christian, you must one day repent of all your sins after you’ve heard the gospel and give your life to Christ. After that, you must join a Bible-believing church to be taught the word of God and be trained on how to live a successful Christian life!

    Several men of God I know have their testimonies of salvation, so what is Joshua’s? He does not appear to have any. So, somebody should, please, tell us when Joshua was born again and where and how?

    TWO: Who pastored Joshua? Who taught him God’s word? Which Bible-believing church did he belong to before his “call” to start the Synagogue of all Nations?) Who was his pastor? This is the New Testament principle as clearly shown in the Acts of Apostles. Those who received Christ were added to church where they are taught about God by the

    Apostles and by more mature Christians. Even when Saul had his encounter on the road to Damascus, that was not enough. A Christian called Ananias was sent to him to minister to him. After that, he joined the church in the city, and when he returned to Jerusalem, he joined the church in Jerusalem. So, he was known among the Christian community and he had fellowship with them. Also, the man called Apollos in the Acts of Apostles who studied the Bible and was teaching it (knowing only the baptism of John) was brought in by a Christian couple and taught about the salvation of Christ.

    There was also this man in the Acts of Apostles called Cornelius who began to serve God and try to live right. But God had to send an angel to advise him to send for Peter to come and teach him about salvation in Christ and lead him and his family to Christ. And after that, he was taught on how to live a Christian life. So he had a pastor.

    So, nobody can be born a Christian or prophet, or become one mysteriously in the New Testament. Every genuine pastor must have began his Christian life in a living, Bible-believing church, so where did Joshua begin his? Who and who did he fellowship with as a young Christian? Who knew him as a young Christian? Why is everything about him shrouded in mystery?

    Anybody who has been overwhelmed by his influence can come here and swear that he would die following Joshua – well that is the person’s problem. But get this clear: only an unwise person refuses to investigate the path he is following, and the person leading him on that path. I will never sit under a pastor without a definite Christian testimony, a definite, verifiable Christian foundation. I just hope people would not wait until it has become too late before retracing their steps. Life in eternity is too precious for one to be careless about investigating and being sure of the soundness of the foundation of the Church he is attending or the origin of the “man of god” he is listening to. Who knows, with the recent event, the “man at the synagogue” may have reached his point of unraveling

    You know what? I smell a rat here; a very big rat! Mr Babangida Aliyu standing up and endorsing Jonathan, and then turning to the Jigawa State governor, Lamido, to do the same. And Lamido got up and nodded in ‘affirmation’. The whole story is told here. The North has set a trap for Jonathan and Nigeria as a whole. This endorsement by virtually some influential members of the North is the first step at ambush. No doubt, Jonathan is now the presidential flagbearer of the PDP, for the December 6 primaries are better described as mere formality to make it look ‘democratic’ and ‘acceptable’. The next stage of the ambush will come in early 2015 when the election will be called and Jonathan is declared the president! Then Jonathan and the entire Nigeria will fall neckdeep into the ambush trench. Taking the present security situation into consideration and considering Jonathan’s inability to contain it; and taking the flip-flop attitude of the military towards Jonathan as the commander-in-chief, does one ever think Jonathan can make any further meaningful impact at containing the nation’s growing surge of impunity at all levels and the simmering insecurity? I don’t want to be called a ‘prophet of doom’ but it is all the same good to be objective in outlook to things. Unless Jonathan suddenly becomes a ‘born-again’ in terms of everything that makes the president an actual president, I doubt if he can really do anything meaningful for the nation in the next four years starting from June 1 2015, or thereabout, when he would mount again the saddle of authority as the nation’s president. With this view in tow, I foresee more serious insecurity; I foresee the Boko Haram making more incursions in Nigeria; I foresee a part of Nigeria becoming a mirror of the present ISIS as is found in the Middle East. These are just the foreseeable activities. And more doomsday events will surely follow. People who read between the lines must come to grips with the fact that the military does not support Jonathan and that explains the lackadaisical and lackluster performance of the military in the Boko Haram crisis. When Yar’Adua was the president, only his mere word to his security people quickly translated to the taming of the Boko Haram! That is very instructive. Even if Jonathan would make all his service chiefs to come from Otu Oke; even if Jonathan would make all his security advisers to come from his wife’s hometown in Rivers State, things would not change since the people on the ground to fight the Boko Haram would still be a mixture of Northern Muslims and others. And the former would still continue to sabotage all efforts at defeating decisively the Boko Haram. This is the message Nigerians must know. I don’t have any personal animosity against Jonathan but he is not respected in the Armed Forces of Nigeria; and this is the very unfortunate thing. Accordingly, he cannot maintain the security of Nigeria, a chore that is at the heart of progress of this nation.

    *Another US Embassy memo states that senior APC member received money from Al-Qaeda to destabilize South of the country.

    A senior member of the European Parliament in Brussels, Franz Obermayr MEP, has accused the Opposition All Progressive’s Congress (APC) of channeling European Parliament financial aid to Boko Haram in the North East of Nigeria and called on the European Commission to investigate alleged concerns over the party’s financial and political allegiance with the terror group.

The aforementioned sub-republics are governed by the All Progressive Congress (APC)”

      In the statement made available to The Nigerian Times, Obermayr says that all further European Parliament cooperation and funding to Nigeria should be subject to the findings of a report into the close relationships between political parties and terrorist groups in the country, suggesting that all development aid should be immediately suspended if any wrong doing is exposed.

      Turning to individuals in the APC, Mr Obermayr raised the US Embassy memo which states that former Vice-President and 2015 Presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubukar, received money from Al-Qaeda to “destabilise the south of the country” and the recent defection of Femi Fani-Kayode from the APC because of their “clear islamist agenda and sympathies with Boko Haram”.

      Further, in a statement that highlights widespread concern ahead of the 2015 presidential elections, he said: “Even the most senior man in the APC, former Nigerian head of state and presidential candidate, Mohammadu Buhari, was quoted in the British newspaper The Guardian back in 2001 calling for sharia law to be introduced throughout Nigeria, including the Christian-dominated south.”

    A senior member of the European Parliament, Franz Obermayr MEP, has accused the Opposition All Progressive’s Congress (APC) of channeling European Parliament financial aid to Boko Haram in the North East of Nigeria, and called on the European Commission to investigate alleged concerns over the party’s financial and political allegiance with the terror group.

    The Nigerian Times learnt exclusively that Franz Obermayr, of Austrian Freedom Party, currently the most popular political party in Austria, made the statements in a press release issued on 16 September and covered widely by the European press.

    The Nigerian Times also learnt that Obermayr has been working closely with Stand for Peace, a Muslim-Jewish interfaith organisation dedicated to countering extremism and promoting social and religious cohesion. Oberamyr has also called on EU election observers to closely scrutinise the links between the APC and Boko Haram in the run up to the 2015 presidential election.

    He said: “In Nigeria’s case, a large proportion of the subsidies from Brussels are used in the north of the country. The federal states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa in the extreme north-east of the country are precisely the areas in which Boko Haram’s campaign of terror is largely tolerated by the authorities. The aforementioned sub-republics are governed by the All Progressive Congress (APC

    The rest of the world is moving forward with vibrant democracy. But we continue to move backwards. The biggest backward step is Jonathan been the only person in PDP who could rule Nigeria. No other person in PDP has any ideas or opinion on how Nigeria should be governed. What a pity!

    Someone said that PDP is dead and was awaiting burial. How true as all those in this wicked party are completely dead to normal human reasoning. For them to say that GEJ has performed puts them far below animal kingdom. Animals can reason better than this. For over 5 years and despite the volume of money generated, Nigerians have not seen any appreciable improvements in education, health, roads, power, security and employment, yet they claim that GEJ has performed. The other day the National Assembly lamented that over 120 bills are gathering dust on the table of GEJ awaiting his signature and same set of people agreed that GEJ has performed. What a heartless set of people. If those bills are not signed for them to become laws, what will the 7th NASS present as its report card. These people have completely sold their human soul to the devil as over 70% of our resources are daily stolen by these vampires, who have openly said that stealing is not corruption. What the opposition and all lovers of Nigeria should do now is to look for a competent, selfless, service oriented candidate from the South South (let the North sacrifice this 4 years to bring back Nigeria to part of sanity) like Oshiomole, Duke, Utomi, etc to beat GEJ hands down. Alternatively, people like Fashola, Tambuwal etc should be considered and in any case Nigerians and the international community should ensure that the election is free and fair. GEJ has become a curse on our land, let us jointly remove this curse. Our prayer for those who say GEJ has performed creditably well is ” May God treat them the way they have been treating Nigeria and Nigerians”.

    The Editor, Premium Times:

    Please could you do Nigerian history a favour? We need the complete list of the B.O.T enablers.
    The name of each member of the PDP B.O.T who pronounced Jonathan irreplaceable is urgent.
    Future generations need to know the names of those who pawned Nigeria for money under the table.
    So far, we know Senator David Mark, we know Governor Aliyu Babangida, and Governor Sule Lamido.

    But there were nearly 80 co-conspirators you did not name. We need the full list for ethical cleansing.
    For Nigeria to change, these conspirators must be known to be later confined to the dust-bin of history.
    We know that Senator Bode Olaumoke, for example, is a member of the B.O.T Board, but was he present?
    Alhaji Shuaib Oyedokun was confirmed as present and for saying President Jonathan is ‘irreplaceable’.
