President Goodluck Jonathan’s bid to pick the Peoples Demcoratic party’s ticket for the 2011 presidential election has received more support in the South-West, according to the leader of a group sympathetic to the cause, Alhaji Shuaib Oyedokun.

Speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Osogbo on Thursday, Oyedokun said the bid had received massive support in the six states of the zone.

The politician, who is the leader of a pro-Jonathan group known as Friends of Democracy in the South-West, said on Thursday that the growing support for Jonathan’s bid was an endorsement of continuity in the presidency.

He said the idea of continuity in governance was meant to enhance unhindered development and stressed the need for Jonathan to complete former President Umaru Yar’Adua’s tenure for ‘reasons of expediency.’

The south west PDP's adoption of Jonathan is no loger a news to people. Do we expect them to follow the man that deprived them the opportunity of having their son at the helm of the affairs of this great nation?  This guy i believe is God sent, let everybody give him the support in the area,though this is purely PDP problem and should not be generalised. It is a known fact that the SW has been fighting for his people ever before his emergence. PDP's internal problem should not be given a national diamension considering the fact that the SW is not for the party. Good luck to Goodluck anyway.
