By  |  0 Comments

According to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators, President Goodluck Jonathan has demonstrated trust, dedication and steadfastness to the service of Nigeria.

While announcing the endorsement for President Jonathan during the president’s declaration at Eagles Square, Abuja on Tuesday, on behalf of federal lawmakers,  Senate President, David Mark said, the president did not only have the support of PDP senators but also had the backing of the entire National Assembly caucus of the PDP.

The senators had threatened to shut down Jonathan’s government until he addressed their grievances following their losses at the November 1 ward congresses of the party in their various states.

According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, Mark said Jonathan’s endorsement was in tandem with advanced democracies of the world where performing incumbent office holders are given the right of first refusal to re-contest.

Mumeh said Mark was of the opinion that the laudable programmes initiated by President Jonathan might be truncated if he declines to continue in office.

The National Assembly, he promised, would continue to support and provide the needed legislative framework for the executive under Jonathan to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to the Nigerian people.

The senate president therefore pleaded with all Nigerians to close ranks and fight on a common front to defeat the terrorists putting asunder our peace, progress and unity.
