A Niger Delta activist and member of Directorate of Youth Mobilisation, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Afoke Okporua, has commended Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed, for the role he played as a Senator in ensuring that President Goodluck Jonathan, then as Vice President, emerged as Acting President and subsequently President.

Okporua, in a statement  said: “It is on record that the famous doctrine of necessity that made Jonathan Acting President and subsequently President was moved by Senator Bala Mohammed while serving as Senator representing Bauchi South Senatorial District.

“His unalloyed loyalty and patriotism to President Jonathan was further played out as he stood by Mr. President in spite of the challenges and conspiracies against the President.

“As FCT Minister, he did not fail in his duties as he succeeded in numerous programmes aimed at developing and positioning the FCT as the capital of the most populous black nation.

“It is on this ground that we of the Niger Delta region sincerely appreciate him for his political sagacity and legislative agility towards making the administration of President Jonathan a successful one and we shall be forever indebted to him,” Okporua added.
