At a time when the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has adopted President Goodluck Jonathan as its sole presidential candidate for the 2015 elections, a top leader and one of the party’s founding fathers, Chief Abu King Shuluwa, has said any attempt by the President to run for another term of office would amount to cheer greed and as such the president should step down for another qualified candidate to vie for the nation’s number job.
Shuluwa, one of the founding fathers of the PDP, was a member of the elitist Disciplinary Committee of the party at the national level. He was also sole administrator of the party in Plateau State. He prides himself as one of those, along with the present Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim, Ibrahim Mantu and others, who approached the National Assembly to apply the doctrine of necessity in order to make President Jonathan, then Vice President, acting President of Nigeria.
Now, things appear to have fallen apart between him and the President and as such the PDP leader can no longer hide his opposition to Jonathan’s bid for another term of office. Reason: “God has given him what he has now. He should not be greedy”.
