Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, will make Nigeria prosperous, says Chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), Dr. Ngozi Olejeme.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja Friday, Olejeme commended President Jonathan for expanding the country’s infrastructure, developing agriculture, generating employment and advancing the cause of education. She advised Nigerians at home and abroad not to be carried away by the noise of some presidential candidates.
“If you desire something better, you have to vote for Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. He will continue to work for the development of the country, make our economy buoyant, create more jobs, reduce unemployment and social tension, sanitise the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil industry and attract massive inflow of foreign investments through appropriate policies and a conducive environment,” Olejeme said.
The NSITF Chairman affirmed her support for Jonathan’s re-election bid, saying that the PDP presidential candidate will continue to encourage gender empowerment in his appointments.
“Mr. President is the servant of the people. He will never forget that. He will continue to act in the national interest. He will continue to ensure the security of persons, property and investments in our territory. He will continue to empower the security agencies to stem the scourge of terrorism in our country. He will continue to make the difference in the politics and development of the country,” she said.
Drawing inspiration from the good governance model of Dr. Jonathan, Olejeme said Mr. President’s second term will go beyond providing critical infrastructure. According to her, “President Goodluck Jonathan will ensure social justice and good governance in the country. He will promote economic development; help the masses develop a clearer understanding of the social, political and economic factors affecting their lives, make the development process more accountable, transparent and participatory as well as provide conducive atmosphere for local and foreign investors.”
The NSITF Chairman appealed to all Nigerians, irrespective of sex, religion, ethnic origin, political affiliation or social status to join hands in the work ahead to make Nigeria peaceful and prosperous by voting for the PDP in the February elections.
