Nigeria: I Won't Endorse Protest Against Jonathan - Odenema

Ughelli — NATIONAL President of Niger Delta Youth Movement, NDYM, Mr Godspower Odenema, Thursday, said he would not endorse any protest against President Goodluck Jonathan in the region.

Odenema in a statement, said "It has become necessary to bring to the notice of the entire youths of the Niger Delta and Nigeria that I will never in my capacity as National President of NDYM and the current National Youth Leader of National Coalition for Jonathan/Sambo Presidency, NACOJP, endorse any planned protest against President Jonathan

He said: "It is on record that various groups and persons had mounted pressures on me to declare a regional or national demonstration against what they claimed as the unbearable delay of Mr. President to empower our youths and those of National Coalition for Jonathan/Sambo Presidency in the six geo-political zones, after they all worked for the electoral victory of Mr. President."
