2015: Nobody can stop our campaign for Jonathan, says Kuku.

Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan
on Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, has
warned that no amount of threat will deter the
natives of the region from urging the President to
contest the 2015 election.
Kuku spoke at an event in Abuja to mark the
fourth anniversary of the proclamation of amnesty
and three years of the implementation of the
programme.
He said that it was the right of the Niger Delta
people to campaign for Jonathan even though he
was yet to declare his interest in the next
election.
He said: "It is our right to continue to urge the
President to consider running for a second term
in office although he has not told us to do so and
has not declared his interest to run."
The adviser pointed out that having performed
more than any other Nigerian President, Jonathan
must be convinced to return in 2015 to
consolidate the good work he had started.
Reflecting on the amnesty programme, Kuku
noted that despite the lavish training of 30,000
youths from the Niger Delta by the Federal
Government, the region still needed more
government attention.
According to Kuku, the Federal Government was
yet to clean up the region, provide opportunities
for the natives in the oil and gas industry,
complete the East-West Road and construct the
Niger Delta Coastal Road that would traverse the
entire region from Calabar to Lagos.
Giving a breakdown of the success so far
recorded by the amnesty programme, Kuku
announced that 14,000 out of the 30,000 Niger
Delta youths, who embraced the programme had
been deployed to study in various universities and
schools in Nigeria and abroad.
Similarly, 2,299 others, he said were undergoing
various forms of skills acquisition in Nigeria and
other parts of the world.
