Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, President Goodluck Jonathan, will win the March 28th election by a landslide.
Mimiko said this in an interview with journalists in Ife on Saturday after the visit of Jonathan to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, to solicit the support of the royal father, other traditional rulers and the people of Osun State.
Mimiko said that Jonathan would defeat the candidate of the All Progressives Conress in the poll, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari ( retd.) across the country and would defeat him in all the states in the South West by securing at least 75 per cent of the votes in the region.
He said, “With all sense of humility, President Jonathan will have more than 75 per cent of votes in Yoruba land. APC is well grounded in propaganda and the super structure of their programmes is propaganda.”
“For so long, we have been the advocates of federalism in Nigeria and president Jonathan has better chances of winning again.”
The governor said that Jonathan would win convincingly because the restructuring which most Nigerians were clamouring for were embedded in the report of the Confab which the President had promised to implement if he won a re-election.
According to him, federalism which the Yoruba people had always advocated was part of the report, saying its implementation would put the nation on a steady path of development.
