Jonathan urges national belief in agenda

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has used the occasion of Christmas celebrations to appeal to fellow Nigerians to have confidence in the agenda of his government and that his government is trying its best to give Nigerians effective leadership to overcome current challenges.

“No one should doubt that we have the political will and determination to deliver on our promise of positive changes in the living conditions of our people in the shortest possible time”, Jonathan said in a special message sent out Monday afternoon.

President Jonathan: an appeal to countrymen and women
Significantly, his ten-paragraph statement, was replete with the theme of trust, perhaps indicating that his regime was concerned about the pervasive cynicism and distrust of government in the country.

“I urge you all to continue to trust in our unwavering commitment to fully achieving the objectives of our Agenda for National Transformation for the benefit of all Nigerians,” he said.

Although the president regretted what he called ‘distractions’ posed against his administration by threats to peace and security in parts of the country, he underscored the need for Nigerians to repose confidence in his government.

As he put it: ” The Federal Government remains very focused on the primary objective of achieving significant improvements in priority areas such as public infrastructure, power supply, transportation, roads, health, education, job creation, agriculture and industrialization as quickly as possible.

” It is my hope and expectation that more of the efforts, actions and measures we are already undertaking in these areas will successfully come to fruition next year and make the results of the diligent project planning and execution being done under this administration more apparent to all Nigerians.

He also urged Nigerians to learn from the significance lessons of Christmas.

” Christmas and the lessons of Jesus Christ’s mission on earth have great significance for us as a people and there can be no doubt that we all, irrespective of our religious beliefs, can draw immense strength and inspiration from the Messiah’s enduring personification of selflessness, dedication to duty, and commitment to the well-being of others.”

“The virtues and ideals of peace, tolerance, faithfulness, honesty, justice, fairness, true wisdom, knowledge and understanding which He taught and exemplified also remain very relevant to us in Nigeria as we continue to grapple with the challenges of development and nation-building”, added the president.
