In separate telephone interviews with Saturday PUNCH in Abuja, on Friday, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and his nPDP counterpart, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze, said only those who did not wish Nigerians well were mounting such pressures.

Mohammed said the pronouncement did not come as a surprise because the President had left no one in doubt about his desire for a second term since he took office in 2011.

He said, “Gulak should stop insulting the intelligence of Nigerians. We all knew since 2011 that Jonathan was more concerned about 2015 than providing leadership. It is only the likes of Gulak who are mounting such pressures.”

Commenting on the issue, Eze said only those benefiting from the government at the expense of Nigerians could have been putting such pressures on Jonathan.

He said, “Let Gulak show us who these Nigerians are. Certainly not the Nigerian students who have spent four months at home because of ASUU strike, certainly not those who are suffering from this unprecedented level of insecurity and the scores of Nigerian youths who roam the streets without jobs.

“It must be people like Gulak who are putting such pressures.”
