A few weeks ago President Goodluck Jonathan declared his intention to contest the next election and outlined his policies and achievements so far. He is favored to clinch the ticket of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party as an incumbent with overwhelming support from all the states being governed by the ruling party. Under President Jonathan Nigeria has enjoyed some economic prosperity and tremendous growth in the agricultural sector. Infrastructural development, women empowerment and increase in both domestic and foreign trade are some of the merits of his administration. The Boko Haram insurgency in the North Eastern Nigeria is however a major set back which his administration can argue was in existence before his emergence as President. All eyes will be on Eagles Square in Abuja on 11th of December 2014 when the ruling PDP holds its national convention that will affirm Mr Jonathan as the flag bearer of the ruling party in the next election in February 2015. He is seen as the favorite to win the next election even-though many speculate it will be a tight race if retired General Muhammadu Buhari is able to clinch the ticket of the All Progressive Congress APC.
