Half of Nigerians say Goodluck Jonathan does not deserve to be reelected, versus 20 percent who say he does.
Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday declared his bid for re-election, having failed to bring back Nigeria's missing schoolgirls, failure to defeat Boko Haram and failure to secure jobs and stable electricity.
The 56-year-old made the announcement to tens of thousands of supporters in the red, white and green of his ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
"I, Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, have accepted to re-present myself, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, for re-election."
"It is now time to look to the future. With your tremendous support, we have collectively done so much in the last three and half years but to take our country to the next level, there is still more to be done," he said.
"A number of young men and women have been kidnapped by these criminal elements, including our daughters from Chibok. We will free our daughters and defeat terrorism,"
