The Jonathan Dawo Dawo Network (Network for the return of Jonathan), has said that returning former President Goodluck Jonathan as president in 2023 is a national sacrifice Nigeria must make.
Coordinator of the group, Isa Kaskasara in a statement on Monday, said Nigeria was was at crossroads, and only a candidate of Jonathan’s capacity can manage a secular state like Nigeria.
The statement titled “Why Jonathan’s candidacy is an option for better Nigeria”, reads in part;
“Our current situation at best can no longer be trusted in the hands of ill-experienced politicians whose contact and influence radiates within shallow boundaries.
“We need a man of candour, with experience in the areas of self-discipline and national life, to navigate us from troubled water
“Jonathan is a quintessential statesman whose approach to exercising power and authority had in no small way boosted participatory democracy in Nigeria.
“At this auspicious time of our national life, we need a personality whose understanding of the polity will guarantee right to stability. Nation building thrives on inherent nationalism, self discipline, and policies that identify limitations of state power.
Kaskara added that Jonathan’s commitment to nation building was exemplified by his non-criticism of sitting and former leaders in the country.
“Managing a secular state like Nigeria is certainly not for the loud mouth, we must recognize the fact that it’s a job for a renowned team player like Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
“We in the north were there for him before, and we are set to mobilise resources to bring him back to continue national sacrifice. In effect, we call on Nigerians to join us in this quest for better Nigeria”, Kaskasara said.
