Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been given a one-week ultimatum to declare his presidential bid.

The Nigerian Young Professionals in Diaspora (NYPD) – a youth group of Nigerians who are based abroad disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, TheCable reports.

Oladipo Akande, the convener of NYPD, said it is important that former president Jonathan runs again for the highest office in the land because of what achieved when he was in office.

Mr Akande said under him, Nigeria was Africa’s number one destination for foreign direct investments (FDI).

He said: “We recall very fondly how President Jonathan made Nigeria Africa’s number one destination for foreign investment with over US$10.70 billion worth of foreign investments in the first six months of 2014.”

“The administration also integrated Nigeria into the international e-commerce community with the approval and re-inclusion of Nigeria as one of the Paypal-compliant countries after being banned earlier.

“Under President Jonathan, Nigeria hosted the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 2014 which to date, holds the record of being the most successful World Economic Forum for Africa (WEFA) in history because of the scope and reach of the event.”

The convener said Jonathan’s experience will bring peace and stability to the country if he is elected president.

“President Jonathan has cemented himself as a true diplomat and African statesman through his various interventions in conflicts and election monitoring across the African continent. This experience will be invaluable in bringing peace and political stability to the country when he becomes President,” he said.

“As the first Nigerian President with a PhD, Dr. Jonathan was able to attract and appoint World acclaimed intellectuals like current ADB President Akinwunmi Adesina, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation among others who brought a lot of value to Governance.

“Given the opportunity to preside over the affairs of the country again, we are confident that he will do even better as the country needs her finest minds now more than ever.

“We are willing and yearning to contribute our quota to see this noble idea to fruition as we believe that the second time will be a better time,” Mr Akande said.
