Jonathan Declares for Presidency, Woos Nigerians with ‘Achievements’


President Goodluck Jonathan has declared his intention to seek re-election in the 2015 presidential election.
The president who made the declaration today at the Eagle Square, Abuja, enumerated his achievements in the areas of transportation, water supply, electricity, agriculture, industry, security, healthcare, and more, since assuming office in 2011.
“Before the advent of this administration, the railway system was virtually dead. Today, we have revived the railway system,” he said. “In the first quarter of 2015, it would be possible for Nigerians to live in Kaduna and work in Abuja, with minimal transport cost.”
“Our ports now operate 24 hours service, which has led to the reduction of clearing time and improve efficiency,” he added.
In the health sector, he noted that victory in the fight against ebola was through the cooperation of all Nigerians, adding that similar results would be attained in the fight against polio.
“I promise that I will not hand over polio to anybody. We must end polio,” the president said.
As regards security he stated that, ” our stewardship has not been without challenges. We have had to deal with the wave of insurgency that has swept through some parts of our dear country. Only yesterday, Government Science Secondary School in Yobe State was bombed by insurgents, killing our promising young children who were seeking education to build the country and support their parents. Many Nigerians have lost their lives and property to these mindless killings. Let me crave the indulgence of all present here to stand up to observe a minutes silence in honour of these young lads who lost their lives. Clearly, this has cast a dark cloud on our Nation but we will surely win the war against terror. A number of young men and women have been kidnapped by these criminal elements including our daughters from Chibok. We will free our daughters and defeat terrorism.”
He therefore called on Nigerians to support his bid for re-election in the 2015 presidential election.In attendance at the event were Vice President Namadi Sambo, Senate President David Mark, PDP governors and party leaders, among other dignitaries.
