On Thursday evening, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan assured Nigerians that the 2015 general elections would be transparent, and peaceful despite the security issues presently facing the country.
He made the statement when senators, ministers, former government officials and diplomatic corps, visited him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja to break the Ramadan fast.
“I know that one thing that is dear to your hearts is what the elections in this country will look like next year.
But let me use this unique opportunity to reassure you and I am conveying this to my brothers, your heads of government, that our elections next year will be free and fair. It will be peaceful in nature that will even surprise the whole world.” he said.
Jonathan is yet to declare his interest in running for Presidency, but from this statement, it can be assumed he will be running again.
