The president gave the assurance in his Eid-el-Fitri message to the nation to congratulate Nigerians of the Islamic faith who were about to successfully complete the month-long Ramadan fast.

He assured that his administration would continue working tirelessly to build on the firm foundations for sustainable national development which it had already established in key areas.

He listed the key areas to include:  public infrastructure, power supply, roads, transportation, aviation, agriculture, education, healthcare, youth employment and electoral reform.

President Jonathan also urged other elected officials at all levels of governance to avoid overheating the polity with unnecessary ethnic and political intrigues.

He urged them to 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.

The President urged Nigerians to continue to support the present administration in every way possible to ensure that the country continued to make steady progress.

Jonathan thanked Muslims 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 wished all Nigerians happy Eid-el-Fitri celebrations. (NAN)
