The immediate past president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan who was spotted in an interactive session with Nigerian students in Kuching, on Friday, has delivered a powerful speech at the World Peace Summit.
Speaking while delivering the keynote address at a peace summit organised by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) in Malaysia on Friday, former President Goodluck Jonathan says his major inspiration all through his life as a public office holder was to lead with conscience.
 
The immediate past president who disclosed that such inspiration is in line with his personal philosophy that

“my political ambition is not worth the blood of anybody”, added that it was the major reason why he decided to concede defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 presidential election.
“I can confidently say that in all my public life, I was inspired to lead by conscience. This is in agreement with my personal philosophy which I first proclaimed while running for the office of the governor of my home state Bayelsa in 2006, and re-echoed when I ran for the office of the president of Nigeria in 2011 and 2015,” he said.
 
“Ever since I said that in November of 2006 in Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa State, I have always lived by it. This philosophy informed my decision to concede the 2015 presidential election, even while the results were still being collated.”

 
According to Reports, Jonathan said it was his decision to always lead by his conscience that inspired him to construct 165 Almajiri integrated model schools to tackle the high rate of illiteracy in the north.
Quote
“In Nigeria, there were 10.5 million (about 15% of the population) out of school children who were of school age, going by UNICEF figures, as at the time I became president,” he added.
“Over 80% of these children for which majority are known as Almajiri came from the northern part of Nigeria, where I recorded the least votes in the elections I contested.
“Knowing the value of education, I could see that the ugly situation was limiting the opportunities of these children and negatively affecting the development of my country. That was why my administration decided to build 165 Almajiri Integrated Model Schools which combined both western and Islamic education in its curricula.”
Speaking on the call for restructuring, Jonathan added that the implementation of the 2014 national conference report will help reduce the current ethnic tension the country, adding that his administration had organised the conference to also promote national cohesion and give Nigerians “hope for a better tomorrow.”
“The conference gave both the young and old the opportunity to exhaustively discuss and agree on the issues that agitated their minds on the workability of Nigeria’s federal structure,” he added.
“I believe the recommendations of this confab, if implemented, would go a long way in solving Nigeria’s structural problems.”

The nations revenues was meant to satisfy his ministers, because they are so important and the people of the nation are here to worship them.
