Jonathan Has Right To Contest In 2015 — APC Chieftain

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said weekend that President Goodluck Jonathan had the right to contest elections in 2015. 
The former chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ogbeh also asked Nigerians to stop making inflammatory statements that there will be bloodshed if Jonathan contests in 2015 elections.
"If the court says he is free to contest and the constitution allows him, no one of us has the right to stop him.
"On the other hand, the opposition can prepare and contest against him, provided there is a free and fair election. That’s all we need to work on."
On threat of bloodshed, Ogbeh said Nigeria had witnessed so much of bloodshed already, stressing that such comments were not in the best interest of the people.
Moreover, Ogbe urged Nigerians to cultivate the virtues of patience and perseverance, irrespective of any frustrations. He appealed to all the politicians of the country urging them "to watch their language."
"When you hear somebody saying there will be bloodshed or that blow will flow in 2015, it is not the way to speak in a country that is seeking peace and progress.
"No matter what the frustrations are, we must not wish our country doom and damnation because we already have too much blood flowing in this country and we can’t talk that way."
