Election 2015: There's no alternative to GEJ - Gulak

The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak has declared that there is no an alternative person to unseat his boss, President Goodluck Jonathan in the  2015 Presidential election.
Jonathan is yet to declare to Nigerians if he would be running for the election or not.
But Gulak, who is the National Coordinator of Goodluck Support Group (GSG), in a statement on Saturday, urged the international community to ignore what he described as ‘noisy propaganda sponsored’ in  the press by the opposition.

He spoke at an award ceremony for eminent women by the Global Connections for Women Foundation to mark the 2014 International Women’s Day  at Havard Club, New York, United States of America.

Gulak said: “We have searched from the West, East, North and the south, for today, as I speak with you, we have not found an alternative to Goodluck Jonathan.  What  you get to hear in the press is the work of the opposition who are desperate to hold power and definitely they are not going to be an alternative to this present administration.”

“We have seen what some  of them had done in the past and we are still seeing what they are doing.  Nigeria under  President Goodluck Jonathan is progressing.  We are developing,” Gulak said.

He called for greater support from global super powers in the  fight against terrorism in the African continent.

“We are still groaning or complaining or condemning what happened during the first and second world war. The effects are still with us. In Africa, the insurgencies in Africa, the terrorism in Africa would not have been possible without the proliferation of small arms and ammunition.”

“And the small arms and ammunition are manufactured and delivered through the super powers. If they really want to help Africa,  then this area is key, ”

“The security challenges are global phenomenon. We challenge our women because this campaign, if driven by women, we believe we would overcome it. Today is the challenge we are throwing to the women to take the campaign, to take the lead and address issues either public or in the bed room with their husband.” he stated

Responding , the chairperson of  GC4W, Chief Temitope Ajayi  noted that women are engines of growth.

According to her, the Jonathan’s administration has offered great opportunities for women advancement and contribution to societal growth and national development.

Calling on Nigerians to give more support to Jonathan in his giant strides to advance the country, she asked for more women to be given more opportunity to contribute to the political leadership of the country.
