President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has received the backing of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-political group.
Reuben Fasanranti, leader of Afenifere Tuesday at his Akure, Ondo State residence, said the group decided to support Jonathan for a second term in office, after its members met with the president.
Yinka Odumakin, spokesman for the group, after the meeting said the endorsement was predicated on the President’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of report of the National Conference 2014.
“Afenifere supports the President’s re-election because he had the courage to convoke the national conference and we hope that he will implement the report. The President expressed the commitment that he will adopt the report within 12 months of returning to office,” Odumakin said.
