Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Rueben Abati, who made the call on a Radio Nigeria programme on Tuesday, said Mr. Jonathan has assured Nigerians that he will remain focused and not be distracted by “all kinds of persons in the society trying to distract this administration”.
“His (Mr. Jonathan’s) commitment is to ensure that the lives of Nigerians are truly transformed and Nigerians have already witnessed this transformation, the evidence is well provided in the mid-term report and in the testimony of many Nigerians who are supportive of this administration,” Mr. Abati said.
The presidential spokesman also said the Jonathan administration “is on course and we should continue to support our country because it is the only country we all have.
“We all have the responsibility to work to make it to continue to grow on a sustainable basis.”
On the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations, of which the Federal Government has declared Thursday and Friday as public holidays to mark the Sallah festival, Mr. Abati expressed the President’s felicitation with Nigerians on the joyous occasion to mark the end of Ramadan.
