I’ll never abdicate my security responsibilities, Jonathan warns political gladiators


President Goodluck Jonathan has sternly warned political gladiators to stay off the polling stations of today’s Presidential and National Assembly elections nationwide by desisting from fomenting troubles in any part of the country, reports ITRealms.

“… I will never abdicate my responsibilities in that regard” he declared during a national broadcast on the eve of the elections last night, advising security agencies to summarily deal with any person find causing trouble according to the laws.

He also restated his belief that no political ambition could justify violence or the shedding of the blood of any Nigeria.

President Jonathan reaffirmed his personal preparedness to ensure fair play during the elections and to deploy the resources and institutions of state only in the manner prescribed by the laws.

“Let me warn, however, that as President, Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, I am under oath to protect the lives of all Nigerians and the security of our country at all times,” he maintained.

He pointed out that those who may harbor any intentions of testing his administration’s will by unleashing violence during the elections in order to advance their political ambitions should think again as all necessary measures have been put in place to ensure that any persons who breach the peace or cause public disorder during or after the elections are speedily apprehended and summarily dealt with according to our laws.

He emphasised that the nation’s security agencies are also fully prepared and ready to deal decisively with any group or persons who attempt to disrupt the peaceful conduct of the elections or cause any form of public disorder.

“Our dear country, Nigeria is the largest democracy amongst black nations of the world. We are a nation of great accomplishments, with a proud history of evolving affinities,” he noted.

President Jonathan therefore enjoined Nigerians to vote peacefully and set a fitting example of political maturity for other emerging democracies to follow.

“I wish you all and our dear nation, very peaceful and successful elections,” he said.
