“President Jonathan’s transformation agenda will continue to focus on ways of ensuring a strong, inclusive, non-inflationary economic growth, employment generation, poverty alleviation, and sustained improvement in the well-being of all classes of Nigerians as well as value re- orientation that targets a robust anti-corruption campaign.
His administration will continue to focus on security, the investment cycle, job creation and also meet the great expectations’ of the people. ” she added.
Olejeme mourns Bayelsa women, says there is no alternative to Jonathan
President Goodluck Jonathan has been described as the best presidential pilot to take the country safely to the next level of development.
“Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is a man of character and competence” Deputy Chairman, Finance Committee of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme said.
Speaking on Tuesday in Abuja with journalists, Olejeme advised Nigerians to be more concerned with the vision, integrity, acumen and ability of the presidential candidate.
In her words “there is no alternative to Jonathan in the March 28 Presidential Polls”.
Olejeme who is also Chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) insisted that the socio-economic reforms of the current administration have made impact in the different spheres of the nation’s life.
“President Goodluck Jonathan has provided leadership by re-engineering the polity, transforming the socio-economic landscape of Nigeria and broadening the prosperity of the country and the people by providing jobs, upgrading the nation’s infrastructure, promoting multiple export industries, reaching the poor and rural areas, creating larger space for small and medium- sized business and bringing hope to the people”.
Echoing the president’s leadership qualities, Olejeme said “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is a shining example of honesty, humility and quality leadership”.
“President Jonathan has proved to Nigerians that government is all about accountability. He will continue to educate our children, focus on health care and uphold rule of law at all times”.
Olejeme urged Nigerians to reject those who viewed public life as a means to increase private wealth.
She explained that the issue of winning the March 28 election is already a foregone conclusion.
“The task of ensuring victory at the polls for the People’s Democratic Party has been performed by the president through good policies, job creation and projects that have direct impact on the people”.
“Jonathan’s victory in the March 28 presidential election will wipe out the cry of marginalization from Nigeria, improve the current reforms and consolidate the gains for the greater good of all Nigerians whether from the North or South” she said.
Olejeme also sympathized with the government and people of Bayelsa State over the death of some prominent women from the state in a motor accident.
Her eyes filled with tears, Olejeme said “it is really hard to believe. It is just so sad”
