Enugu traditional rulers support Jonathan’s re-election bid

President Goodluck Jonathan at a Presidential rally

No fewer than 371 traditional rulers in Enugu State have pledged their support to President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming general elections.

The traditional rulers expressed their support for the president in Enugu on Friday during a meeting with him as Mr. Jonathan took his electioneering to the state.

The Chairman of the Enugu State Council of Traditional Rulers, Lawrence Agubuzu, assured the president that the state would remain a PDP state.

According to him, the president had no problem in the state because the people would always vote for a reliable government.

“We are custodians of peace and culture. With the transformation agenda of Mr President, we have gained a lot.

“We are not politicians but we urge politicians not to see politics as a do-or-die affair.

“We appeal to politicians to deliver issue-based manifestos and not inciting ones,’’ he said.

The president later held a closed door meeting with the royal fathers.
