President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday in Benin said  the country had reduced its poverty rate by 50 percent.

Jonathan said this while speaking at the South South Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) political rally in Benin, tagged “Unity Mega Rally.”

He said that the PDP, as a party, believed in stomach infrastructure because the party must ensure that there was food security and job creation in the country.

He noted that any leader who claimed not to believe in stomach infrastructure was not ready to lead, as “you cannot lead hungry people.’’

He described the PDP as the only stable party since its formation that had never changed its name, logo or motto, adding that it is the only party that gives its members the freedom to climb to the highest level.

He said that all the nation needed was unity, and gave the assurance that although all the roads could not be rehabilitated at once, his administration would continue to improve on all infrastructure in the country.

He also gave the reassurance that since the nation was able to conquer the Ebola Virus Disease, it would also conquer the Boko Haram insurgency.

The president however appealed to the party loyalists to be decent in their various electioneering competitions in order not to create enemies among themselves.

Earlier, Vice President Namadi Sambo said the present administration had completed seven power projects with a total of 2,000 mega watts for the South South under the Transformation Agenda.

Similarly, Senate President David Mark described Jonathan as “a good sell’’ hence his unanimous adoption by the party as its choice candidate for 2015.

The PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, described the president as a bridge builder and unifying factor.

He reassured that all defectors to the party would be reintegrated into the party without bias.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party, Tony Aneneih, said the zone had every reason to be proud of its contribution to national development.

He also said that the zone had made sacrifice to keep the country together as well as contributed to the economic growth.

The president had earlier inaugurated the Benin-Ofusu Dual carriage, where Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo described the quality of work as impressive.

Oshiomhole also congratulated the president on the massive road construction and rehabilitation across states in the country.

NAN reports that the rally was attended by high profile members of PDP both in the state and in the country, including serving and past governors, national assembly members, as well as aspirants.

OMG. Really. Who carried out the survey that led to this conclusion? Who is he trying to impress - maybe the people of Benin. Wow. The only political party not to have changed its logo, name or motto. What an enormous achievement. Unbelievable. Maybe a PUBLIC HOLIDAY should be organised to celebrate this TREMENDOUS achievement - sticking to one logo, name and motto!!!

Nigeria is STILL a land of ORGANISED CHAOS!!!!
