President Goodluck Jonathan

CITING his ability to initiate and implement reforms that enhanced the operations of the private sector, a group of business leaders and professionals under the aegis of Corporate Forum, has endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term bid.

According to the group, most initiatives and intervention of Jonathan in critical sectors of the economy have been under-reported and often ignored, adding that this necessitated its endorsement for the President.

Speaking at an endorsement ceremony organised by the group in Lagos, yesterday the Forum’s Chairman, Funso Lawal, said that the move was designed to support and engender good governance. He explained: “The private sector has benefitted from the various reforms and good posture of President Jonathan’s administration. We want a consolidation of achievements and that is why we are endorsing the President for a second term.

“Corporate Forum is not a political organisation but a non-governmental organisation advocating support for President Jonathan’s administration based on his activities and intervention in the private sector.” Lawal added that the forum “has been facilitating meetings between the decision makers and business communities, stating that the endorsement was a result of the town hall meeting held between the President and private sector leaders earlier in the year.

The forum’s chairman added that the organisation celebrates good governance and supports the aspirations of political candidates through interactive sessions with the Organised Private Sector (OPS), professional organisations, and opinion leaders, while it also undertakes, on a regular basis, extensive research and reviews of economic performance and governance process through its Strategy Re

    Goodluck Jonathan will win because the All Progressives Congress chose the wrong candidate to be their flag bearer. A Fashola ticket for instance would have given Jonathan the kayoo punch(I for one would have voted for a Fashola presidency).
