Buoyed by performance, Jonathan storms Northern Nigeria – PDP

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that its candidate in the February 14 election, President Goodluck Jonathan, is heading to victory due to his good performance in office and widespread acceptance by Nigerians.

The spokesperson of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, who addressed a press conference on Sunday in his office, also announced that the president’s campaign train will kick off in the northern part of the country on Monday.

Northern Nigeria is believed to be the part of the country where Mr. Jonathan has the lowest popularity due to the belief by some that it is the turn of a northerner to emerge president as well as the failure of the administration to curtail the Boko Haram insurgency that has ravaged the region.

While speaking on his party’s chances in the presidential election, Mr. Metuh said Mr. Jonathan is set to win convincingly in the five states of the South East. He also said the President would deal with the All Progressives Congress, APC, in South West states including Lagos, the stronghold of the party.

Mr. Metuh said the popularity and acceptability of Mr. Jonathan and governorship candidates have earned the PDP tremendous support at the grassroots.

“As our campaign train moves to the north tomorrow, we leverage on the goodwill we enjoy from our citizens in that region.

“The north remains a stronghold of the PDP where in the last 16 years, we have enjoyed massive support and have continued to win majority votes as a result of our unprecedented performance in all sectors.

“Our strength lies in the fact that out of the 19 states of the north, the PDP controls 12 with solid structures, oiled over the years in all the wards and local government areas,” he said.

Proof of performance

The spokesperson said the PDP is popular in the north and is buoyed by the various development projects that have hugely affected the lives of ordinary Nigerians in the region; a factor, he said, put it in vantage position to win back Sokoto, Kano, Nasarawa and Kwara as well as win in Borno, Yobe and Zamfara states.

“As we go to the north, we are not just asking for votes, we are coming loaded with verifiable achievements. For instance, in education, the once abandoned Almajiri boys can now go to school as President Jonathan initiated and established the Almajiri System of Education, the first of its kind, with over 150 special schools already built across the Northern states while others are nearing completion.

“Also, out of the 14 new universities established by President Jonathan, 9 are located in the northern states thereby ensuring that all states of the region have a federal university. This is in addition to establishment of new secondary schools and training of teachers for better quality education in the north,” he said.

He also said recognizing that agriculture is the mainstay of the northern economy, Mr. Jonathan ensured that out of the 2.7 million direct farm jobs achieved by his administration, over 2 million are in the north.

He said the president established the e-wallet system, which eliminated the corruption in the distribution of fertilizer and other farm inputs thereby making the products directly accessible to millions of farmers in the region and this has boosted their productivity.

“Today, our silos are brimming and food pyramids are returning in the north,” Mr. Metuh said.

The PDP spokesperson added that in the last four years, President Jonathan has committed enormous resources in tackling desertification in the region.

“This administration established more than 80 km of 15– row Green Belt in addition to the Presidential Initiative on Afforestation in Kano and 10 other Northern States,” he said

He added that the revitalization of the railways by the Jonathan administration has connected major cities in the north to the extent that very soon it will become easy for Nigerians to live in states in the north and still work in Abuja as the Abuja-Kaduna standard gauge rail is expected to become operational in the first quarter of 2015.

“Today, the Minna-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano narrow gauge has been rehabilitated. The Markurdi-Lafia-Kuru-Bauchi-Gombe-Ashaka-Maiduguri, as well as the branch line from Kafanchan to Kaduna are at completion stages and will be operational soon,” he said.

On roads, the spokesperson said the Kano-Maiduguri highway that is the longest stretch in the country is being successfully tackled. He also said the Abuja-Lokoja road, which used to be a death trap and has witnessed several accidents is now a delight for road travellers.

“Against the backdrop of the achievements, a few of which we have just highlighted, we are going to the north, well-equipped with our record of performance,” the party said.

  • Dan Arewa

    Which performance are they talking about? Boko Haram taking over towns after towns and killing more people every day? Or is it the sheer corruption that have destroyed Nigerian economy back to square ‘0’? I doubt if northerners will buy this contraband product called PDP Jonadaft this time around.

  • DESTINY,

    thank you Mr. spokes man. it is an actual credulity that Jonathan, has done more than what the eyes can see but the north and the APC, will not accept to the incontrovertible evidence. tather they will keep on riding on baseless propaganda and conspiracy theory. especially in the area of insurgency and destroying the image of the federal government, locally and internationally.but they will be ashamed when president Jonathan is announce the winner next month.

  • Adebenson

    We will also want you to go with messages of Peace. print out pamphlets encouraging peace too. ABeg. let it be in arabic and distributed by their religious leaders

  • Abufata Gumi

    Right on point Olisa Metuh. Jonathan has done for the north what no other head of state has done. the ordinary people of the north knows this and will vote for him in this election

    • Jika

      An ordinary person in the North East of which I am one,will definitely NOT Vote for PDP.

      • alabi olubunmi

        Even his name shows he is an impostor abufata. Is there any moslem that doesn’t knw hw to spell his name. Joker. I’m nt a moslem nor a northerner but I can see clearly that this name is an imposter and definitely one of those employed to comment of news forums

        • Jika

          Absolutely true my brother.

    • Murtala

      Am very sure Gumawa must have disown you and your likes. Just listen to yourself.

    • blueeyedkitten

      all this fake(named) guys prowling the cyberspace, your days are numbered. feb is just round the corner.

  • Truthometer

    Dumbo/PDP’s campaign’s train should not forget to reach Sambisa and Chibok this time around. So that he can market his so called performance there. The people Dumbo allowed their communities to be ravaged by war and their daughters sold into slavery will be more than willing to vote for him.

  • Bishop

    Very funny man. You are actually paid to talk. Hope he comes with chibok girls n reclaim not just PDP states but lost local govts to BH

  • Ha

    Look at him in the picture, as if he was serious.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Bruv, he was seriously considering how soon he could ‘hit’ the next bottle.

      lol

      • Gideon Orkar

        Bro the North has benefited far more than people know. Take fertilizer scandal as an example, do you know that 10.5 million of the registered 12 million farmers are from the North? They get their fertilizers and seedlings directly and that has never happened before

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Bruv, as far back as 1985, I could go to Iddo and get seedlings, cassava cuttings and fertiliser bags at circa N37 per bag and I did not have to bribe or knew anybody then.

          What exactly is the point you are trying to make?

          If a government creates a bottleneck deliberately and then removes it after creating a number of multi-billionaires in the process, I do not feel that is ground to hail them as my saviour.

          • Gideon Orkar

            the point is that over N700 billion had been lost to fertilizer fraud. The govt spent a lot of money on subsidy and the fertilizers were hijacked by middle men and politicians. It is quite possible the ones you bought at Iddo were meant for poor farmers. the present govt changed all of that and now farmers are no longer cheated. The world bank has adopted the system that this govt introduced for other countries. Did you know this?

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            I just happen to personally know the person that owns two of the three companies presently responsible for this in the country.

            What was your other question, Gideon?

    • VOTEoutGEJ!

      He always look confused

  • alabi olubunmi

    Mr olisa metuh go and drive the campaign buses in the north and better still walk round declaring pdp and pres jonathan without security, then u wud knw hw much the north have accepted him and how much they love him.

    • Wise Head

      If he is attacked, it won’t be because of lack of performance, it would be because of ethnicity and religion, and YOU know it. This hate-driven campaign that compels all of you to close your eyes to verifiable facts, you will all wake up one day to regret it.

  • buhari pickin

    Dis man call olisa metuh head correct so abi I’m Oga jonathief don give am ogogoro drink.talk is cheap keep on talking till we get to the poll 14 Feb ole buruku

    • Seek Knowledge

      Sometimes I wonder…I just wonder how much misconception you pple have about ogogoro. I keep wondering if it is the same ogogoro that I know…which has been a blessing to my life. If only you know the totality of the benefits of ogogoro, then you wouldn’t be casting unintelligent aspersions on such a rarity of nature’s gifts.

  • Khafilat Adeoye

    THE CASE FOR THE RE-ELECTION OF PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN IS OVERWHELMING & COMPELLING

    My party the APC was sabotaged by OBJ & Bola Tinubu who are shamefully executing a dubious plot to return power to the South West through the doctrine of necessity knowing that Buhari is simply too old, sadly too sick and had erred by claiming in his INEC forms that he has WASC when indeed he does not have WASC ……reason he went to Aldershot instead of Sandhurst.

    It is not too late for my party to put its house in order by replacing Buhari with Atiku Abubakar or Rabiu Kwankwaso who came second during the primaries.

    You can help a man when he is down but not when he decides to sleep on the floor …… Buhari is sleeping on the floor and I am very, very sad and disappointed.

  • Chris1408

    Hopefully GEJ campaign in the northern territory will include Gworza, Baga and other territories in Boko Haram control. Also, he should list the captured Chibok girls and others as his achievements.

    • warry

      No president can be stronger than his army.The president is equipping the Army to confront the new challenges.

      • Chris1408

        The president is the commander in chief of the armed forces. When the head is rotten, it spreads to the rest of the body, thus weak and corrupt president means weak and corrupt military.

  • warry

    Why is Obj,Atiku,Tinibu,Amaechi,Nyako,Fariuk Lawan, supporting Buhari?
    They want to use our heads, If we fall Mugu, Guy men go wack. They know that Buhari will not know what they will do.

    • Chris1408

      I doubt anyone can be more mumu than GEJ. He’s as Mumu as they come.

  • UYI111

    In every war there casualties unfortunately the chibok girls happen to be one of those untill they are rescue those who are blackmailing the present government with the girls will fail.
    Because Chibok is a PDP area kidnapping these girls were meant to to shortchange PDP

  • Sani Danladi

    Buhari and all HIS Supporters are on a FAILED PROJECT.
    Graduate Employment Data 1983 – 1985 Under Buhari.
    Sunday Times, February 17, 1985.
    Out of 92,116 graduates (including Nigerians who studied abroad and HND holders) who graduated in 1983, only 21,026 were able to secure jobs as at 1985.
    Worse is that fact that out of the 20 % employed, the public sector employed 85% While the private sector employed a paltry 15%.
    One wonders how the economy survived then?
    Buhari was head of state all through the period under review.
    That is a chilling 77% unemployed almost 2 years after graduation. That must have been a record.
    How can Buhari who hasn’t worked since 1985 know how to improve employment?
    Vote Buhari for 77%-100% unemployment.
    Vote Buhari who has been unemployed since 1985 (30yrs unemployed)

    I’m convinced despite pockets of opposition from APC and their e-rats,PDP will win more vote in the North this time. APC has no ideology and vision for Nigeria ,they will crumble soon.

    • Rommel

      Hahahahahahahahahah so there are human beings who still want Nigeria to continue the way it is going? I am amazed

  • Thepeople

    I feel sorry for some confused Nigerians who might not understand rhetorics . February 14 question is simple, if Nigeria was your business named Nigeria plc and it is been run by a chief executive you left in charge called Jonathan. With the way he has run Nigeria so far, would let him continue or would you sack him. Would let him and his board members like Olisa Metuh, FFK ….continue to steal and run company called Nigeria down or would effect a change. The question is simple enough.

  • Akinwade Kolawole

    Buhari is die hard trying to rule Nigeria even with him knowing fully well that he cannot last with his prostate cancer illness and knowing that he is not qualified without a certificate. Have anyone ever got a job without having the required certificate? Yet the people who will not employ a primary six attempt without certificate to work as a bank manager wants us to employ such as the president of Nigeria. Big Jokers!!!!

    • Rommel

      So which of the cancers do you have,is it of the brain just like uncle Jona?

  • Musa Yaro

    Some of our elites are secretly backing out of this Buhari thing. They are not happy with APC for choosing Buhari’s. We are suspecting foul play by South West leaders. We wonder why Kwankwaso and Atiku both healthy candidates were bypassed. Atiku and Kwankwaso’s interests are better served in the PDP so do that of the entire North.

          2. We know their sponsors, and we are going to deal with them…

          3. We will build walls to protect our students…

          4. Boko Haram are our siblings, you don’t attack your siblings anyhow…

          5. There is no corruption in Nigeria, only “small-small stealing”

          6. I dont know about Shekau, am I the army? Even you press people know more about Shekau…

          7. Boko Haram is in my government…

          8. I am surrounded by bad advisors…

          And on and on… On record…

          I will run out of fingers if I continue to type the different ways he shot himself in the foot, and stuffed the foot/ feet in his wide mouth!

  • Ali

    Why PDP is getting it wrong in Hausaland……

    There is nothing like monolithic northern Nigeria again – none!
    Jonathan is simply hated by Hausa/Fulani/Kaniri triumvirate.
    That triumvirate predominates the north-west; and,
    predominates in the two states of the north-east.

    Their grouse against Jonathan is the zoning and rotation clause
    of the PDP constitution which has never been honestly interpreted
    with clarity, even up till today. On top of that hate politics by Muslims,
    Boko Haram was deployed into the fray to unite the triumvirate around
    a common Islamist identity against a Chrstian president (Goodluck Jonathan).
    Jonathan’s performance has nothing to do with this Hausa/Fulani Islamic Jihad.

    • tyson

      The Kanuris are nice detribalised people–the trouble lies with the Fulanis–where were botn in Borno state like Shekau—-Kanuris are never greedy–they are not even the ones fighting in boko haram–of killing Beroms in Jos–the fulanis are-

      • D. Bright

        @ Tyson,

        Islam is the major problem with Nigeria. All else is secondary.
        Muslims repudiate the constitution holding Nigeria together.
        Nigerian Muslims then break up national unity in consequence.

        They then split the Nigerian Army into armed religious camps.
        Furthermore, Nigerian Muslims declare themselves SUPERIOR.
        They now import arms to wage a war against the national army.

        Along the way they rape, loot and burn all Christian churches.
        To complete the goriness they behead Christians and soldiers.

    Nigeria says no to the imposing of a sick Buhari on Nigerians for the second time round by Tinubu and OBJ.We have had Yaradua, Murtala and Abacha die in office, say no to Buhari state funeral.

    Nigeria says no corruption and yes corruption has decreased significantly under GEJ government as noted by Transperancy International(Global Institution) for the first time in Nigeria History.

    GEJ must complete his tenure and agenda for all Nigeria and leave Office in 2019

    • Is it true too that while your military colleagues, such as Ibrahim Babangida,

    I noticed from all the comments here that all the stated achievemnets of the GEJ administration has not been contradicted one bit which means they are facts

    • Yola

      Which of the comments are you referring as all I see are ranting of GEJ will win all states in North, None was talking of achievements for someone to contradicts.

    • Yola

      Is the the 2nd Niger Bridge that was promised in 2011 election campaigns, still being promise today that is an achievement? Lol!!!

    • Tunsj

      They are facts in your own mind.

      • meenahmoh

        They are mere facts that we all can see but we are blinded by conspiracy theories masterminded by GEJ’s opponents doing their best to sabotage GEJ and his administration!

        • Y-man

          Conspiracy theories? I am sure you are typing this using generator, planning how to go to mechanic this weekend to fix your car, because your road is bad. And you are worried about the armed robbers that sent letter last week that they are coming to your street…

          Is this the potential we have in Nigeria? With our resources?

          Your soldiers are being fed one plastic bowl of beans a day, and colonels are building MANSIONS in Abuja: you feel that is ok? You believe Nigeria is okay?

          Well, he said it before: his plan to protect Nigerians is to build walls and fences…

          Anyone who supports him is either getting his own cut, or is a simpleton like him…

          • meenahmoh

            Before we got to where we are today, Nigeria was in a state of disarray and on a brink of political war, but GEJ came and he redeemed our great nation! he saved us! its time to pay him back and re-elect him so he can finish his good work! #GEJ4naija

    • Y-man

      We do not even have to argue it: your beloved GEJ said it all –

      Your beloved GEJ came out on international press to say:

      1. We know who they [Boko Haram] are…

      2. We know their sponsors, and we are going to deal with them…

      3. We will build walls to protect our students…

      4. Boko Haram are our siblings, you don’t attack your siblings anyhow…

      5. There is no corruption in Nigeria, only “small-small stealing”

      6. I dont know about Shekau, am I the army? Even you press people know more about Shekau…

      7. Boko Haram is in my government…

      8. I am surrounded by bad advisors…

      And on and on… On record…

      I will run out of fingers if I continue to type the different ways he shot himself in the foot, and stuffed the foot/ feet in his wide mouth!

      FACT!

      Deny this!

    Why Muhammadu Buhari is NOT qualified to run in 2015

    Nigeria cannot afford a Primary five (5) educated President and expect to progress.
    Military training is not an academic program or is 10-month WAR COLLEGE equivalent
    to a 5-year West African School Certificate (WAEC) academic program by any standard.

    Buhari with his own hand wrote on the INEC Form that he obtained WASC (see below).
    He did not say he has either the equivalent or state WAR COLLEGE as an equivalent.
    Whereas, Buhari did not complete secondary school or obtain any WASC certificate

    The APC has made considerable inroad into Bayelsa state,as a matter of fact,GEJ will be shocked in his own backyard.

    • Preye Aganaba

      Funny you! This is why elections can never be won on social media? Who will vote for APC in Bayelsa? Have you ever been to Bayelsa state before?

      • Rommel

        Why then did President Jonathan hire an army to target people on social media? but for real I have never been to Bayelsa state but Timipriye Sylva whom I understand was a successor to the then governor Jonathan is gunning for votes under APC,we’ll see

  • mahmudu

    Etang chris, tyson u are all ignorants of what is happening in the north, GEJ will not and cannot win a single state in the north bcos it isnot more uuniversities we need in the north but rather protection from this sponsored terrorist of PDP called boko haram. Only yesterday evening they came nerar our village in Gombi and our gallant soldiers and local vigilant ies killed them all.NO GEJ IN NIGERIA AGAIN COME MAY 29 2015 INSHA ALLAH.

    • Sani Danladi

      just read the second to the last sentence of your comment. and yet you shamelessly opened your mouth to say we don’t need universities in the north. Don’t worry,you will see the out come of the polls in the north.

  • Preco01

    Delusion of grandeur! no be only performance

  • Nelson David

    While some are working for the down fall of this country, he (Mr. President) is working tirelessly for the protection and well being of the citizen of this nation.

  • MaziOkochi

    Is this a joke? The PDP needs to be delivered from its delusion. So far, even with the rented crowds, GEJ’s campaign stops in the north have been greeted with palpable rejection. The journey back to Otuoke is well on course.”

  • Ndubuisi Chinedu

    Mr President just keep doing what you are doing and God will bless your hard work. Nigeria is not all about north or south but all in whole.
