PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan on Monday said his ambition and that of Vice President Namadi Sambo did not take priority over the death of Nigerians during the stampede at the Peoples Democratic Party‘s presidential rally at the Port Harcourt stadium.


Jonathan, who spoke during the presidential campaign rally at the Uyo Township Ttadium, said any politician that advocated violence and destruction during elections did not mean well for the country.


The president emphasised high-economic development as a process of transforming the country. He explained that the Federal Government was working on policies and programmes that would facilitate jobs for the unemployed youths in the country.


Jonathan said, “If we have crisis in this country, the turbulence will get to you. So anybody, who is preaching violence and destruction does not want the good of this country. I have said it on several occasions that neither my ambition nor anybody’s ambition is worth the blood of Nigerians.


“Neither my ambition nor that of my deputy, Namadi Sambo, worth the your blood. So, say no to violence. You must vote and protect your vote. By the INEC regulations, you have to stay at the polling units and protect your votes.


“Make sure nobody have the opportunity to rig elections. We are emphasising one man one vote during the poll. Stay at the polling station until votes are counted. It is only when your agents get the results that you are free to leave the polling units.


“Nobody is praying for violence, when violence comes, it will consume a lot of us.


Jonathan also reiterated the commitment of his government towards giving the country uninterrupted power supply in the next four years.


He said, “We must think of what to do to create jobs for the youths and not how to kill them. We will make sure that in the next four years, Nigerians will have power instead of darkness. We will all be guilty if after four years Nigeria is still having this kind of epileptic power supply.”


“If we cannot stabilise power, we cannot talk about small and medium scale industries; these are the industries that provide jobs for the people.”


The President reasoned that what drove most of the Asian Tiger economies were the small and medium scale enterprises, adding that the Federal Government would centre its development plan on this strategy in order to serve the interest of the people.


Jonathan added that the government would allocate adequate fund to the agriculture sector as engine of growth and development.


On the petroleum sector, he said the need to refine the products had been the major problem of the country, saying that in the next four years, the government would go beyond refining.
