Northern Youths donate N2m to Jonathan to enable him purchase presidential nomination form

President Goodluck Jonathan

Some youths under the aegis of Northern Youth Forum on Saturday donated N2 million to President Goodluck Jonathan to purchase his presidential nomination form.

The Coordinator of the forum, Engr Bello Bichi, announced the donation at a rally in support of President Jonathan in Kano.

''We decided to support Mr President with this token amount to enable him purchase the nomination form for the presidency.

''The youths in the north believe that President Jonathan has the country and youth at heart in view of his commitment toward transforming the country,'' he said.

Bichi who reaffirmed the commitment of youths in the north to support President Jonathan's ambition for the second term, called on the president not to relent in his effort toward ensuring peace, unity and development in the country.

The Minister of Youth Development,  Mr Boni Haruna in his remarks, said the donation was a clear indication that Northern youths were in support of President Jonathan's bid to re-contest the presidency in 2015.

Jonathan, who will formally declare his presidential ambition on Nov 11, needs N22m to purchase the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s nomination form.
