Politics Niger Governor Says There's No Vacancy in Aso Rock



Governor Babaginda of Niger state has declared that there is no vacancy in Aso rock presidential as President Goodluck Jonathan was not moving out anytime soon. THE SUN has this story.

Support for the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan came yesterday from the least expected quarters as Chairman of the Northern States Governors’ Forum, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, openly declared that there is no vacancy in Aso Villa in 2015, especially for aspirants in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Aliyu, who played a prominent role in the now defunct G7 Governors generally seen as working for the emergence of a northern president in 2015, made the categorical statement in Minna when some youths under the aegis of Babangida Aliyu Youth for Peace Initiative, called on him at Government House where they urged him to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of the PDP.

Mr. Inienimi Agiri, who led the youths, had told the governor: “Now that by tenure and sheer leadership for development capacity, you are most qualified for national service, we feel-duty bound to also make a clarion call on your humble and hard working self to respond to the earnest yearning of the patriotic youth of Nigeria for a focused service to the entire citizens of this country by accepting to present yourself as an aspirant for the 2015 presidential election.”
