Group Defends Jonathan's Statement


The Movement for Democratic Sustainability, MDS and Media for Ethnic Equality, MEE, have stated that President Goodluck Jonathan was misunderstood in his statement that the Southwest was too important to be left in the hands of rascals.

The groups disagreed with those exploiting the president’s statement to score cheap political points.

“By making extensive clarifications on his facebook page, the President has further demonstrated his responsiveness as a leader,” Afam Iheanacho, Publicity Secretary of MDS said.

“The President said he was misunderstood and that the Western part of Nigeria by his estimation remains a very sophisticated and educated part of our dear country, as sophisticated as the cultures in all other parts of our country and unique in its unequivocal stand for justice and equity,” he added.

The groups stated that the president has nothing against the Southwest and that those using the Ibadan statement for political purposes should leave the president alone.

“The campaign for the presidency of this country should be issue based and there should be a refrain from all politicians. They should respect each other and stick to what they will do to turn around the nation’s fortune,” Iheanacho stated.
