“Jonathan won’t convert to Islam nor resign his position for peace to reign,” -NDIMRC
The Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, NDIMRC has thrown its support behind President Goodluck Jonathan, noting that the President would neither convert to Islam nor resign his position for peace to reign in the country as part of the condition given by the Boko Haram sect.
While describing the demand of Boko Haram as laughable and a huge joke, the group warned that the sect to stop frustrating President Jonathan and put an end to the ‘senseless’ killings in the Northern parts of the country.
NDIMRC, in a communique by its President, Nelly Emma, noted that Boko Haram’s demand that President Jonathan should convert to Islam or resign, was a cheap blackmail that must be ignored by the good people of Nigeria.
It implored the sect to stop the killings and give the President the needed peace to discharge the mandate freely given to him by Nigerians in the 2011 general elections.
It said: “President Jonathan has the mandate of Nigerians to rule this country and he will not succumb to any blackmail. The President cannot be intimidated; he will not resign because he is the custodian of a mandate given to him by Christians and Muslims alike.”
