This is very surprising! The youth wing of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Edo state has declared its support for the 2015 presidential ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan.
This is coming less than eight months before the 2015 presidential elections.
Though Jonathan is running under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the APC youth wing said that it decided to back the incumbent president because of what it described as his resilience and tolerance for opposition parties.
It was gathered that the youths however, pointed out that “we are only going to support President Jonathan because he is our brother from the South South, but not the PDP in Edo state.
They also added that they are “going to work for the victory of APC candidates in Edo state both in 2015 and 2016 because we gave the PDP opportunity in Edo state and for ten years they did not achieve anything for our people before God gave us Oshiomhole.”
