The South-South Peoples Assembly (SSPA) yesterday told Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso to stop insulting President Goodluck Jonathan.
The assembly, in a communiqué after an expanded National Working Committee Meeting in Abuja called on Jonathan to contest in the 2015 presidential elections in consonance with section 131 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
While responding to an allegation by Kwankwaso that the timetable released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2014 elections is part of the plan by the Presidency to manipulate the 2015 election, the SSPA said the comment was part of the insults the President has been receiving since he assumed office.
Led by Ijaw leader and former information minister, Chief Edwin Clark, the assembly appealed to Nigerians to, in the spirit of national unity and solidarity, give their support to Jonathan.
The group also commended some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the National Assembly,for participating in the screening of service chiefs and consideration of the 2014 Appropriation Bill.
Appealing to Nigerians to always imbibe the virtues of peace and love, the group stressed that this is the only way to strengthen the ties of national unity.
