The South-South Chiefs and Elders Council (SSCEC) International, have threatened to arrest President Goodluck Jonathan if he fails to declare his interest to run for a second term in 2015.
The group made this known yesterday in Abuja, during the endorsement of the President for a second term in office.
Executive Chairman of the Council, Ama-Opu Senibo of Opobo Kingdom, Chief Reuben Jaja, who made the declaration said that the president’s re-election was necessary, as he had done exceedingly well for the country.
“Our goal is to show support to our president who has served this country right. We feel that he is qualified to run by law and by way of performance. He is doing exceedingly well, we have seen tremendous progress in our education, agriculture, transport, women affairs, youth development and entertainment and the critical sectors of our economy,” Jaja said.
Jaja added that, should the president ignore the council’s call, he would be arrested and compelled to run for the 2015 general elections.
