OWERRI— President Goodluck Jonathan, has promised to build a Nigeria where everywhere will be home for every Nigerian citizen, irrespective of tribe, religion or state of origin if he was voted into power during  April elections.

Dr. Jonathan, who made the promise in Owerri while flagging off the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, campaign in Imo State, also warned that there would be unimaginable crisis if youths were not adequately provided for in the next 10 years.


“We stand for the unity of this country. We are going to run a government where we will not discriminate against anybody, irrespective of your tongue, religion, nationality or your place of birth,” Jonathan said.

He also expressed hope that his administration would create a Nigeria where every citizen will have equal rights and justice, stressing that the issue of marginalization would be removed in the country.

“We hope to work with you to recreate the consciousness and  awareness that any son or daughter of Nigeria, from Owerri to Enugu, Ibadan, Katsina or Maiduguri, will have equal rights in Nigeria. You will get whatever you deserve, whatever you are qualified to get and nobody will discriminate against you. That is our aspiration. That is our commitment,” the President said.

He also disclosed that the federal government had a number of infrastructural development projects going on in Imo State, adding that government would continue with it until the entire nation was transformed.

“We have a nation of about 150 million. Seventy percent of this figure are people under the age of 30 and 50 percent of them are very young people, under the age of 19. So, we must prepare for this coming generation of youths, otherwise in the next 10 years, we will have crisis on our hands,” Jonathan said.

It was the considered view of the President that “to do this, the nation must industrialize and we must encourage commercial agriculture, and that is why we are emphasizing on power generation.”

fellow nigerians it is an unconpromising fact that we are angry with the way our leaders have been presiding on us in this country.l want to belive that the agony and pain been bestowed upon us by our leaders is just too much.infact one thing that concerns me alot is the monthly take home of our so-called legislators[seventeen million 4god sake.just too much].and for over six months,they ave been dragging the issue of 18,500 minimum wages.this is absolutely crazy.my dad use to say;WE NOW LIVE IN COUNTRY WHERE PEOPLE NO MORE LOOK INTO THE FUTURE FOR HOPE BUT RATHER LOOK BACK TO THOSE DAYS OF CONTENTMENT THAT WERE MISSED.nevertheless,lets hold on to our faith that one day a powerful change we come upon this country.LETS GIVE GOODLUCK JONATHAN A CHANCE.he might be the long awaited massiah.thanks

The slogan " I will promise less and deliver more" is no longer considered by the Mr. president!
I am so tired of jotting down promises!
