2015 Elections: NNPP Adopts Jonathan As Presidential Candidate

0
Ahead of the March 28 election, the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has adopted President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party as its presidential candidate.

Addressing a press conference in Lagos, NNPP national chairman, Dr Boniface Aniebonam said the party, which is currently fielding candidates for various positions in 23 out of the 36 states of the federation and Abuja, decided to adopt President Jonathan “so as not to truncate what the president has started.”

He said: “Jonathan is a man who talks less and does more. He is known for humility. If the president did not have God behind him, a lot of things would have gone wrong in this country.

“We took critical look at the various presidential candidates and decided to present Jonathan. We urge Nigerians to vote for the current administration for continuity. This is not by any means casting aspersions on the credibility of the other presidential candidates. We only believe we should rather have continuity at this stage,” he said.

He also expressed the possibility of NNPP going into working alliances with some political parties in other categories of the elections if the need arises, noting that “politics is capital intensive and requires a lot of funding and logistics.”
