In a press statement yesterday in Abuja by the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of The Team Jonathan Initiative, Ojugo Onyelukachukwu, the group frowned at the present political tension and what it termed “dangerous politicking” by some politicians in the country.
“Nigeria is owned by 160 million people and they have inalienable rights to determine their fate as a nation. We have watched with so much dismay how otherwise statesmen have become ethnic and religious champions and nobody defends the nation; national issues are daily being trivialized by people who don’t see beyond their economic interest or political relevance,” it said.
It said politics is not about being vindictive but issue-based condemning the act where many politicians capitalize on the present insecurity in the northern part of the country to score cheap political points instead of coming together and taking urgent steps to stop the insurgency.
The group also called on all Nigerians to support President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 elections noting that his style of leadership is good for the growth and development of the nation.
