President Goodluck Jonathan Finally Declared His Intention To Seek Reelection

President Goodluck Jonathan has finally declared his intention to seek reelection to leaders of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), during a meeting inside the Presidential Villa on Thurday October 23. He told senior party officials that he would purchase the party’s nomination form ahead of the October 30, 2014 deadline.

The party’s leadership recently adopted the President as its sole Presidential candidate amidst pockets of complaints from some members. Even with his adoption, President Jonathan had declined to openly confirm whether he’ll seek reelection even though his body language tilted towards the obvious.

With Thursday’s confirmation, reports said the President has set up a campaign declaration committee headed by a former Chairman of the party and ex-federal minister of Defence, Dr. Halliru Bello. The President is expected to formally declare between November 7 and November 15.
