Ex-commissioner: Nigerians want Jonathan to return

Mr Moses Essien, a former Commissioner for Education in Akwa Ibom State has stated that Nigerians want ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to return as the country’s leader.

This was contained in a statement released on Thursday by Essien, who is the National Coordinator of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation.

He said, “It often said that a good product sells itself, because it is attractive and so it naturally attracts patronage. That is what we are witnessing in the case of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Nigeria is standing on the brink of its unity and history. The country needs urgent rescue through a trustworthy, detribalised and sincere democratic leadership that rebuilds national confidence and faith in the country. That is what GEJ represents to this country.

“When you look at it from this common national denominator, you will discover that it is not just enough to say the North, but every segment of this country is hungry and anxious to have their beloved GEJ back to power once again.”

Essien added that the former President stood for equity and justice, saying this was displayed during his time as the country’s leader.

Essien stated, “He was fair to all, and the North, in particular, was a huge beneficiary of GEJ’s inclusive governance. For instance, in the area of education, which is central, GEJ left indelible footprints in northern Nigeria as President.”
