PRESS RELEASE

NDIGBO LAGOS ENDORSEMENT OF PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE AZIKIWE JONATHAN AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE FOR THE 2015 GENERAL ELECTIONS

Ndigbo Lagos, the umbrella body of Igbo organizations in Lagos, wishes to state its position on their preferred candidate from among the contestants for the 2015 presidential election.
Ndigbo Lagos, cognizant of the importance of the forthcoming election, not only to the future of the Igbo Nation, and also conscious of the imperative of a united, sovereign Nigeria, after careful consultations and deliberations amongst its members and affiliated groups, declares as follows:
That the lack of equity, fairness and justice arising from the current Political Structure of Nigeria is the foundation of the many ills that have bedeviled our country over the years.
An unfair Political Structure which condemns a majority of Nigerian citizens to ‘’hewers of wood’’ and ‘’fetchers of water” and which enthrones mediocrity in place of merit, promotes indolence, corruption, lopsided Federal Presence in the states; and the mindset that Nigeria is, metaphorically, a ‘meat’ to be ravaged rather than ‘livestock’ to be tended-to should be corrected.
Ndigbo Lagos having read the manifestos of the various Political parties and listened to the campaign promises of the various Presidential Candidates have come to the conclusion that only President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan has shown commitment towards addressing the imbalances in the political structure of Nigeria.
The 2014 National Conference which President Jonathan set up produced a Report that was unanimously adopted by all delegates across all the geopolitical zones and Nationalities.
The outcomes of the conference include the creation of additional state within or from the South-East to give equity to the Igbo nation; creation of more states to give voice to minorities; rotation of presidential power between North and South and among the six geopolitical zones; the abolition of the Local Government as a direct charge of the Federal Government; the creation of state police for a more effective fight against crime; a step towards return to the derivation principle and fiscal federalism; a foundation for Regional Structure; the lifting of immunity clause covering political office holders from criminal accusations; abolition of pilgrimage sponsorship by government agencies, amongst others.
The above resolutions, if eventually put into the constitution, as we hope it will, shall go a long way towards restoring confidence in the Nigerian project.
Ndigbo Lagos notes that APC was the only major political party that did not send a delegation to the conference even though State governments run by APC sent delegates. However, unlike President Jonathan, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of APC have not shown any enthusiasm in the Outcomes of the conference.
It is principally for these reasons and more, that Ndigbo Lagos considered that the strategic future of Ndigbo within the framework of a larger Nigeria, will be better served by a continuation of a Goodluck Jonathan Presidency.
We therefore, adopt President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan as our preferred candidate for the 2015 General Election.
We enjoin Ndigbo everywhere and indeed all Nigerians of good conscience to come out en masse on February 14, 2015 and vote for President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan.

Long Live the Ndigbo,
Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria

Just think to a time when you've been frazzled with a mile long to do list and how you've beaten yourself up and felt like you haven't got it together. A very simple way to order these thoughts and gain a balanced life.

We are heading towards another conflict that would further divide us. Nigeria is living on borrowed time. The religious and tribal politics that has defined us from independence is now about to tear us down. The political process is flawed and federalism is more of a joke than reality. Whatever the outcome of the upcoming elections, there would be violent process across the States, streets and nation. It's time to rethink Nigeria.
