The traditional rulers in Enugu have backed President Goodluck Jonathan on his re election bid in the forthcoming general elections.
With nothing less than 371 traditional rulers in the state, they all expressed their support for the president in Enugu on Friday during a meeting with him on the sides of his campaign rally.
The Chairman of the Enugu State Council of Traditional Rulers, Igwe Lawrence Agubuzu, assured the president that the state would remain a PDP state.
According to him, the president had no problem in the state because the people would always vote for a reliable government.
“We are custodians of peace and culture. With the transformation agenda of Mr President, we have gained a lot.
“We are not politicians but we urge politicians not to see politics as a do-or-die affair.
“We appeal to politicians to deliver issue-based manifestos and not inciting ones,’’ he said.
The president later held a closed door meeting with the royal fathers
