Politics Awka Agog as TAN Rally Support for Jonathan's 2015 Presidential Bid



The popular Ekwueme Square in Awka was filled beyond capacity as the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), on Saturday, held a rally to persuade President Goodluck Jonathan to contest 2015 presidential election.

The rally was the first in the South East in the series of rallies planned for the six geo-political zones to urge Jonathan to contest for second term as well as enlighten Nigerians on the achievements of his administration.

Prof. Chinedu Nebo, the Minister of Power, said the Transformation Agenda was still on course, adding that Jonathan had done well to propel the economy of the country to greatness.

Nebo said the energy sector, which had been privatised, was now better positioned to supply power to drive the economy.

According to the minister, alternative energy sources are also being harnessed to take care of the rural areas.

``President Jonathan has created stable macro-economic environment, best destination for Foreign Direct Investments and a business environment with best return on investments.

``Our energy sector has been transformed through the privatisation and more than 1000 engineers have been employed in the sector’’, he said.

A chieftain of PDP, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, said Jonathan had done a lot for the Igbo people to deserve their support.

Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra also said he was impressed by the turnout of people at the rally, adding that it was a sign of huge acceptance among the people.
