The Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan declared his bid for re-election yesterday, November 11th 2014. He vows to defeat Boko Haram that threatened the country’s sovereignty during this first tenure.
“It is now time to look to the future. With your tremendous support, we have collectively done so much in the last three and half years but to take our country to the next level, there is still more to be done,” he said.
He added: “I, Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, have accepted to re-present myself, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, for re-election.”
Jonathan said Monday’s attack had “cast a dark cloud on our nation but we will surely win the war against terror”.
