The President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Coordinator for Obafemi Owode Local Government area of Ogun State, Adeyinka Kotoye, has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the majority of votes in the South West because of his performance and contributions to the growth of the region and the country.
“Jonathan deserved to return, he has done well. He has improved the transport sector, improved the agriculture sector, aviation sector and he has done so much for the education sector in the country. In the economy sector, he has done well. In many areas, President Jonathan has recorded success,” he said
Kotoye said that the propaganda of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), was not not enough to sway the region from voting Jonathan.
“I believe the electorates will decide but I don’t like sounding absolute but Jonathan will win. When people postulate about Tinubu’s influence in the Southwest, I often shudder. It is very unpredictable on how people will vote.
“The media rebranding of Buhari will have limited influence because at the grassroots, people do not use facebook, twitter or watch the television like the elite.
“The APC are using double standard to promote his candidature; in the South, they are projecting Buhari as a pro-Christian while in the North, the slogan is if you vote Jonathan, you are voting a Christian; so why the deceit?”.
