Goodluck Jonathan

Nigeria’s immediate Past President, Goodluck  Ebele Jonathan, delivered a speech at the Bloomberg Studios in London, United Kingdom on June 6, 2016.

The speech was titled ““Civis Nigerianus Sum” – I am a citizen of Nigeria”. INFORMATION NIGERIA brings you  4 things Jonathan said he did for Nigeria you probably never knew.

1.His political ambition was not worth the blood of one Nigerian; The reason why on March16th, 2015, just after the election, when the results were still being collated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Jonathan said he called his opponent, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to concede, in order to avoid any conflict and ensure a peaceful transition of power.

2.Broke a record; That phone call to Buhari made him the first elected Nigerian leader to willingly hand over power via the ballot box, to the opposition party, without contesting the election outcome.

3.Job creation; He revealed that his administration took many steps to curtail the scourge of unemployment, in the areas of Finance, agriculture and petroleum. To take just one example, he said they drastically reduced corruption in the agricultural sector with the help of a simple mobile phone by by providing an e-wallet to farmers which grew the percentage of registered farmers receiving subsidy from 11% to 94%. And in the process they were also able to save billions of naira in fertiliser subsidies.

4.Built universities; He stated that his administration established a Federal University in every one of the 12 States that did not previously have them. Therefore, for the first time in our country’s history, every state has a university established by the Federal Government.
