President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan wishes all mothers in the country a very happy Mother’s Day celebration.

As they mark the day set aside worldwide to commemorate mothers and their great, unique and indispensable service to humanity, President Jonathan salutes all Nigerian women and mothers.

The President assures them that the Federal Government will continue to do all within its powers to further empower them to play their immense, God-given  role for the greater glory of our dear nation.
