He accused the opposition of making him appear not doing well. He also added that Jonathan’s achievements are underreported by the Nigerian media

He stated that “the common Nigerian who are (sic) the mass do believe that this president has done so well” and that the populace would be the ones to debate and decide who they want as president when the time comes.

President Goodluck Jonathan deserves a second term if “he so desires to have” it and “if makes himself available.” He said.

President Goodluck Jonathan has said in recent times that he is yet to decide what he will do in 2015 as he is busy with accomplishing what he set out to do in his current term.
