Joseph Yobo, the former captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Friday led a group called PDP ward 2 ward Initiative to the Presidential Villa Abuja to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for second term as the president of Nigeria.
In his address, he told state house correspondents after a close door meeting with Jonathan, that the president deserved a second term to continue the "good work" he inherited and has continued to do.
Yobo also stated that his organization had a short, medium and long term plan to partner with the president on his transformation agenda.
"I'm here to endorse His Excellency, the president of our great nation, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, for his re-election. He has done so well.
I stand here as a youth to say that he deserves a second term to push forward the good work he has started.
I do believe in the legacy of the transformation agenda, and that's why this Ward 2 Ward Initiative is building on that legacy."
"The president has done so well. The youth now have their own power, they have their own beliefs and they should understand that they have their rights in their own hands. They should follow what Mr President has started."
"The youth should come forward and believe in Mr President. Everybody should come out to vote for him.
It's your choice, but as an individual and as a face of the youth, I recognize what he has done.
The future is for the youth. We need to stand up and look into the future, not just now.
If we don't settle down and take responsibility as youths and be able to follow what Mr President has done, then what does out future hold?"
