Women Farmers, Police Widows Endorse Jonathan Re-election Bid
FEW weeks to the general elections, women farmers in Kano, in collaboration with wives of policemen who died in active service, have endorsed the candidature of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
In a gathering convened by the Special Advisor to the President on National Schools Agricultural Programme, Baraka Sani, held at Royal Tropicana Hotel, Kano, Sani assured Jonathan of total support in his presidential bid.
She stated that no amount of intimidation or harassment could deter them from supporting the President’s bid.
“All we know is that Mr. President has done a lot in the development of this Northern part of the country in particular and the country in general. So there is nothing anybody can tell us that can make us shift ground in what we believe in,” Sani maintained.
Sani revealed that she was very sure that Jonathan could get more than 25 per cent votes from Kano. “Since then we came to realise and understand the good work done in the areas of health, agriculture, economy, service delivery and the social aspect of our people, our great party will reach the promised land.
“No government was modest and humble enough to take the issue of our Almajiri system seriously. But President Goodluck Jonathan has established Alamajiri schools across some states in the North. This is a good achievement as far as taking care of our delinquent children is concerned,” noted Sani.
