Leaders and elders of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the South South geo-political zone have insisted that President Goodluck Jonathan must run for a second term in the 2015 presidential elections.

The leaders, under the chairmanship of a former federal commissioner, Edwin Clark, said the president needs to contest the election, expressing their trust in him to further transform the nation.

The spokesperson of the forum, Ayakemeh Whiskey while reading a communique of the elders after a four hour meeting in Abuja revealed that the leaders and elders of the zone have passed a vote of confidence on President Jonathan.

He said they have resolved to resist any attempt to stop him from running for a second term.

Meanwhile, the south-south leaders have called on the Rivers state governor, Chibuike Amaechi, who was recently suspended from the PDP, to desist from all forms of anti-party activities and work for the success of the party at the next general elections.
