Don’t believe GEJ, he’s a serial promise breaker – APCPCO warns Yoruba leaders

The presidential campaign organization of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday called on leaders in the South-west not to believe the promise by President Goodluck Jonathan concerning the implementation of the recommendations of the National Conference report.
The APCPCO in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, its Director of Media and Publicity, said the report of the National Conference has nothing in it that adequately takes care of the zone’s interest, describing it as an attempt to defraud the South-west.
It also said though it is the right of the South-west to adopt anyone, it contended that the ground for adoption of President Goodluck Jonathan was flawed.
The report of the National Conference cannot be said to represent the opinion of the generality of Nigerians, because the delegates were handpicked by the presidency and not elected by the people. Describing those working for the adoption of President Jonathan as hungry people, the APCPCO said such people are doing so because their palms have been greased.
“Whilst we are not averse to any group supporting any candidate for the forthcoming general election, it is vitally important to state that a recent purported endorsement of Jonathan by former Confab conferees from the South-west was predicated on spurious and utterly dishonest reason. It is necessary to state that all points of the Yoruba agenda that could have favoured the South-west, including regional autonomy, restructuring, devolution of power and parliamentary system, could not sail through at the conference. These people knew that though they deceived Nigerians, particularly the Yoruba people, with the ostensible reason, but the real reason for the endorsement was because of their personal economy. Some of them have had their personal finances transformed by way of juicy but dubious security contracts and handsome cash largesse by the government of Goodluck Jonathan at the expense of Nigerian people. We consider it asinine that any group can predicate its support for Goodluck Jonathan on his promise to respect any agreement. The antecedents of Goodluck Jonathan speak eloquently of a serial promise breaker, unreliable keeper of gentlemanly agreement and unabashed turncoat,” the statement said.
