ODDITY: Ex-Presidential Aspirant Cautions Politicians on Vote of Confidence for Jonathan
LEGISREPORTS NG – Presidential aspirant on the platform of the National Action Council (NAC), Olapade Agoro has cautioned some politicians over the recent passing of vote of confidence on President Goodluck Jonathan.
Agoro, in a statement personally signed by him, noted that no serious minded and right thinking Nigerian need lose sleep over the decisions arrived at a two-day meeting of some Southern leaders held Sunday 26 to Monday 27 May 2013 at Eko Hotel in Lagos.
According to him, “it no doubt smacks of lack of seriousness of purpose for grey heads to have allowed themselves to be coagulated and bounded together passing a vote of confidence on President Goodluck Jonathan and endorsing him to run in 2015 at a time he is having a hotly running battle with Boko Haram insurgency.
“Making a laughing stock of the whole show of the so called Southern leaders confab with peoples mandate lacking, was the reflection of it been sponsored by the Federal government and it aimlessly roving agents.
“It calls to serious questioning the wisdom of the Southern leaders demanding that President Jonathan convokes a national conference not later than December 13 2013 to decide the fate of the nation and at the same time passing a vote of confidence on the president and endorsing him to run in 2015.
“What will happen if the suggested national conference by the Southern leaders hold and among its arrived decisions changes the political status of the nation denying Jonathan a 2015 running possibility?” Agoro queried.
He maintained that it all reins in the fact that almost all of those at the “so-called Southern leaders wisdom less meeting are ‘His Master’s Agents’ some of whom are either card carrying members of the mis-ruling PDP, some finance hang over and some particularly looking for contracts and relevance paid to praise sing Jonathan for nothing than 2015 presidential elections that may never hold if the serious oddities on ground are anything to go bye,” he added.
