National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, said on Thursday that President Goodluck Jonathan, will restore life fully to the Northeast region if re-elected for a second term in office.
Mu’azu, who stated this in a statement in Abuja, expressed delight in the progress achieved by the armed forces and their international collaborators in the war against insurgency in the Northeast and that the current mop up operations to sweep away the insurgents had progressed beyond his party’s imagination.
He said, “President Jonathan when re-elected for a second term will declare a Marshall Plan to rebuild the entire geopolitical zone affected by the war. Our party has this programme on the top of our agenda in the next four years.
“That will be the right way to wipe away the scars of war among the people of that area. I remain hopeful that our party has not only taken the pole position in this tight two-horse race to win the 2015 presidential election, but will also go ahead to win the majority in the National Assembly and win many more states.”
Mu’azu said his party will continue its current interactive meetings with stakeholders, especially traditional rulers not minding the campaign of calumny from the opposition All Progressives Congress that it was sharing dollars to Yoruba monarchs.
He said, “We shall continue this interactive engagement with Nigerians until 26th March when campaigns officially end before the March 28th Presidential elections, presenting our scorecard in government, our programme in the next four years to 2019, using the town hall format and meeting our revered traditional rulers.
