Youths of Urhobo extraction in Delta State under the aegis of the Urhobo Youths Leaders Forum have asked President Goodluck Jonathan to seek re-election in 2015.
President, Movement for the Advancement of Urhobo Nation, Mr. Rex Anigoro, said Jonathan was left with no option but to re-contest in 2015.
He spoke on behalf of leaders of youth organisations under the UYLF, when they visited the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, in Abuja on Thursday.
Anigoro said Urhobo youths would not hesitate to protest if Jonathan failed to contest.
He said, “We have come to stand in solidarity with the President; Jonathan is a very experienced leader, he is not an accidental leader. Some Urhobo elders visited the Arewa Consultative Forum, and I must say that it is their right to do so.
“However, we youths from various organisations wish to say that the Urhobo people are not enemies of Mr. President.
“I won’t say if he contests, rather I would say ‘when’ because he does not really have any choice here. And if he doesn’t contest, we will march naked in the streets to protest; and when he contests, will vote enmasse for him again as we did in the past.”
The President, he said, had done well especially in fixing the nation’s dilapidated roads, addressing the intractable issues in the power sector, ensuring industrial harmony and creating an atmosphere for democratic growth among others.
