The Labour Party (LP) has faulted critics of President Goodluck Jonathan’s formal declaration to run for re-election, saying his had the right to do so.
“Jonathan has the right to present himself for election just as the Constitution gives Nigerians equal right to elect or reject him,” a statement by the party’s National Secretary, Mr Olukayode Ajulo said.
According to the LP, Boko Haram had existed even before the Jonathan administration. The party therefore described “such unfounded allegation,” as myopic, and a way of “to trying to score cheap political points with an issue that threatens the corporate existence of the country.”
