Immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan says the people of Bayelsa State will die for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Speaking in Bayelsa State on Tuesday at the PDP Presidential Campaign Rally, Jonathan describes the former Vice President as a detribalised individual.
Jonathan urged the people to vote for the party’s candidates at the presidential, National Assembly and state assembly election in the forthcoming polls.
According to Jonathan, if elected as President, Atiku will not engage in lopsided appointments.
“This is somebody that appreciates Bayelsans, somebody that recognises Bayelsans, somebody that loves the Ijaw people. He is the kind of person that we Bayelsans must die to work for. He is the kind of person that will help us because he knows us, he has been relating with us. He is the kind of person that will bring the whole Nigeria together.
“He is the kind of person that can look among us and say one of your sons can be a Chief of Army Staff, DG DSS, Inspector General of Police, Chief of Air Staff, Chief of Defence Staff or Minister of Defence because he has confidence in us and we also have confidence in him. Bayelsans, our eyes must be open.
“Let us not play politics of stomach and you mortgage the interest of your people. Politics is all about the people. Politics is not an individual business. And we have looked at all the candidates – all of them are good people – but among the good people you will get the best. Atiku is the best candidate. To be there in the State House, and use his hand lens and periscope and see the whole Nigeria as his constituency. And help to improve the quality of our lives,” he said.
