Jonathan is a blessing to Nigeria - Olejeme
Deputy Chairman, Finance Committee of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme on Sunday praised President Goodluck Jonathan's tough stance on crime and his track record turning around Nigeria.
Olejeme in a joyous mood Sunday evening also described President Jonathan as a blessing to Nigeria.
“Looking at what President Jonathan has done for Nigeria, the people are hopeful for a better future” Olejeme said.
Speaking in Abuja, Olejeme declared that “it will be victory for PDP in the March 28 Presidential Election”.
Olejeme, who assessed the nation’s political journey in phases, described the last six years as the brightest chapter in Nigeria’s political history.
Promising a greater transformation, the PDP chieftain said “President Jonathan will continue to invest in farmers, attract local and foreign investors, and ensure national unity and the integrity of the national territory.
“He will foster a stable investment climate, defuse social conflicts and give a sense of belonging to the various ethnic groups through the enthronement of political and economic justice”.
In her view, “President Jonathan in his second term will satisfy all the expectations the people have today. He will ensure economic growth, improve infrastructure, create jobs for the youths, expand the country’s export base, find markets for farmers, spend responsibly and cut costs through strict adherence to fiscal and monetary discipline”
She urged Nigerians to vote PDP in the March 28 Presidential Election. “We need to transform by moving together. We need to vote for a man who has the ability and capability to effectively manage and grow the economy” she added.
