Jonathan sends 30,000 text messages to PDP delegates

President Goodluck Jonathan has begun interactive contacts with Peoples Democratic Party delegates and other stakeholders in the party on phone, ahead of the party’s presidential primaries taking place on Thursday (tomorrow) in Abuja.

Director, Research, Planning and Strategy of the Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation, Mr Mike Omeri, said this in a statement.

A copy of the statement was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja. According to the statement, Jonathan has so far sent more than 30,000 short message services and voice messages to PDP delegates.

It said, “The strategy has proved to be very effective.

“The feedbacks and responses from delegates and other stakeholders, who profusely profess their love, support and solidarity with the President has been overwhelming.”

The statement urged Nigerians to shun violence and be prayerful to ensure the successful conduct of the April elections, noting that Nigeria was bigger than the ambition of any individual or group.

In June 2010, Jonathan launched a Facebook page to interact with Nigerians.

He also inaugurated several interactive programmes, including ‘Neighbour to Neighbour,’ to involve Nigerians in making free choices in the elections.

Meanwhile, the Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar clashed again on Tuesday over the party’s presidential primaries. primaries taking place on Thursday. The Director of Media and Publicity Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation, Mr. Sully Abu, dismissed Abubakar’s threat that he would defeat Jonathan at the primary election.

Abubakar, who flew into Minna, Niger State to meet with the party’s North-Central delegates shortly after being screened by the PDP panel in Abuja, said he would defeat Jonathan at the primary election the way he and other Nigerians killed ex-President Oluseguin Obasanjo’s third term agenda.

Abubakar, who was received by the Niger State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Musa Ibeto, referred to Jonathan as ‘an offshoot of third term.’

However, Abu said there was no comparison between the failed third term bid and Jonathan’s constitutional right to vie for the PDP’s presidential ticket.
