The youth wing of the National Coalition for Jonathan/Sambo Presidency, NACOJP, have given President Goodluck Jonathan 45 days to declare his intentions to run in the 2015 Presidential elections or millions of youths will storm Abuja and Nigeria will become ungovernable.
Speaking at a ceremony in Abuja, NACOJP’s President, Comrade Godspower Denema, stated that Jonathan must contest in 2015 otherwise they will resort to drastic actions that might threaten the existence of the country.
“On behalf of the entire youths of Nigeria, I want to sincerely warn that if Mr. President refuses to contest the 2015 presidential election, the youths of Nigeria from the six geopolitical zones of the country will be forced to take some drastic actions,” he said.
“Some of the action may include but not limited to the shutdown of the entire country. More than 40 million Nigerian youths will storm Abuja in early February. We shall conscript Mr. President. We shall make sure that no Jonathan, no election in 2015 and most Nigerian youths shall change their national tags.”
He said that Jonathan deserved re-election in view of his “sterling performance” in his first term.
“Those fanning the embers of disunity and beating the drums of war should not flee the country when trouble starts. They should not attempt to ferry their own children out of the country when the trouble they are trying to promote starts.
“In fact, they should be advised to bring their own children who they are keeping abroad to come home to fight. Nigeria at centenary is at a cross-road. The pendulum of activity is oscillating between peace and impending war. President Jonathan represents peace and his detractors, who are crisis promoting agents, represent war. So the choice is now left for Nigerians. I am very convinced that they will make the right choice, which is the path of peace,” he said.
The NACOJP ceremony also celebrated the launch of a pamphlet titled ‘100 Reasons Why Nigerian Youths Should Support President Jonathan.’
