President Goodluck Jonathan has reassured Nigerians of his resolute commitment to overcoming all distractions and delivering on his promise of good governance and national transformation.

He made the pledge in his Eid-el-Fitri message, assuring that “his administration will continue working tirelessly to build on the firm foundations for sustainable national development which it has already established in key areas such as public infrastructure, power supply, roads, transportation, aviation, agriculture, education, healthcare, youth employment and electoral reform.”

The Nigerian leader also urged “other elected officials at all levels of governance to avoid overheating the polity with unnecessary ethnic and political intrigues, and give the highest priority to fulfilling their promises of better living conditions for the electorate first, before turning their minds to plans and permutations for future elections,” according to a statement released through his Special Adviser on Media, Dr. Reuben Abati.

“As they celebrate Eid-el-Fitri and the end of Ramadan, the President urges Nigerians to continue to support the present Administration in every possible way to ensure that the country continues to make steady progress towards the successful implementation of its agenda for positive national transformation,” the statement added.

Dr. Jonathan congratulated “all Nigerians of the Islamic faith who have successfully completed the month-long Ramadan fast” and thanked “all Moslems in the country who responded to calls by him and other leaders for special prayers during the Ramadan for greater peace, security and progress in Nigeria.”

He expressed confidence that “God Almighty will hearken to the supplications of the faithful and bless Nigeria even more abundantly with peace, political stability and national prosperity.”
