To the total amazement and disappoint of the Yoruba ethnic group, the pan Yoruba socio cultural organization, Afenifere has endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan for the next month’s Presidential election mentioning continuity as the reason for the endorsement.
The group at the end of its meeting held at the residence of its Leader, Chief Rueben Fasoranti passed a vote of confidence on the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate insisting that President Jonathan is the right choice to rule the country.
Governor Olusegun Mimiko and former Ogun state Governor, Chief Gbenga Daniel had earlier held a closed door meeting with President Jonathan at Fasoranti’s residence.
The Afenifere Leaders stressed the need for continuity of the lofty transformation programmes of President Jonathan, saying all Nigerians who appreciate good work must support Jonathan for second term.
President Jonathan, who was in the state for the presidential campaign, was received by Governor Mimiko and he’s expected to address his supporters today at the Democracy park Akure.
