The People's Democratic Party Governors Forum (PDPGF) says it is banking on a situation report indicating that President Goodluck Jonathan will get over 90 percent of votes cast on March 28.
PDPGF Chairman and Akwa Ibom State Governor Godswill Akpabio stated this while briefing State House journalists on the outcome of a closed-door meeting Jonathan held with governors and other stakeholders of the party Monday evening.
“The meeting was just to take stock of the situation on ground and the report is very favourable. It looks like on the first ballot, we will win well over 90 percent of the votes across Nigeria”, he said.
Akpabio boasted that the same way Nigerians came together in 2011 to vote for Jonathan, they would re-elect him on March 28, this year.
This, according to him, is because Jonathan has performed well; while the ruling party has discharged its responsibilities to Nigerians to the best of its ability based on available resources.
He said the opposition was clearly in disarray ahead of the forthcoming general elections, saying he had always insisted that propaganda could only take one to a limit after which the reality would be clear.
Akpabio said with the latest development, Nigerians were now aware of the giant strides of Jonathan's administration in the various sectors of the economy.
The governor also claimed that within the last four years, Jonathan had performed better than any president in the history of the country.
