MEND says voting Jonathan is biggest mistake Niger Deltans ever made as they choose Buhari over President Jonathan

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has threw their support behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), General Mohammadu Buhari, saying Goodluck Jonathan deserves “not a second more” in the presidency.
A statement signed by Jomo Gbomo said the group’s decision to support General Mohammadu Buhari arises from the pathetic state in which the country has been put by the government of Mr. Jonathan and its strong belief in General Buhari as the man and change the country needs.
“It is very clear that the Niger Delta region now regrets voting a corrupt and incompetent leader who they believed would [bring] transformation to the region, in spite of our earlier warnings about Goodluck Jonathan,” MEND said.  “He (Goodluck Jonathan) has only succeeded in infecting the region with poverty, corruption and mal-administration. This is our chance not to repeat this costly blunder of 2011.”
It challenged every Niger Deltan to ask themselves if the region is any better under Goodluck Jonathan than it was under a sick Late President Musa Yar'Adua. MEND said President Jonathan does not deserve a second more in the presidency as soon as his tenure expires as he has continuously and blatantly disregarded the very people who voted him into office.
They feel disappointed that it is a Niger Deltan at the helm of the presidential office which has failed the nation.
