Be patient with me, Jonathan tells Nigerians

President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday urged Nigerians to give him more time to deliver on his promises.

Speaking in Onitsha, Anambra State during the inauguration of the N4.6 billion Onitsha River Port Complex, Mr Jonathan said he would deliver on his promises before the end of his tenure.

President Goodluck Jonathan (L), with the former Commonwealth Secretary-General, and CHAIRMAN, Orient Petroleum Resources PLC, Emeka Anyaoku, at the inauguration of Orient Petroleum Resources PLC production site at Aguleri-Otu in Anambra on Thursday.

He promised to develop an integrated transport system, linking airports, sea ports and rail to boost commerce and the movement of cargoes.

Also speaking, the Minister of Transport, Idris Umar, said the river port would stimulate economic activities and job creation.

He said three inland water ports in Baro, Niger; Oguta, Imo, and Yamata, Kogi, would soon be completed and inaugurated.

The Minister thanked the president and the Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, for supporting his ministry in developing water transport.

The Senate President, David Mark, who was represented by Zainab Kure, promised to work harmoniously with the executive arm of government to develop the nation’s economy.

He urged synergy among the ministries to ensure quality budgeting, adding that the government would soon set up a board on deep sea water.
Mr Mark hoped that the Baro Port would be inaugurated in the next 12 months.

The Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, said the project would reduce the pressure on Nigerian roads and also create jobs.

During his visit, the president also inaugurated oil drilling activities at Orient Oil Resource Centre, near Aguleri; the SABMiller Brewery in Onitsha; and Orange Drugs Factory.

He also unveiled the giant statue of the Ikemba Nnewi, the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, and named the expanded expressway from Niger Bridgehead to Upper Iweka Road – the gateway to the South East – as Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Way.

    Haba Mr President, which other Patience do you need again? Is it because the 1st Lady is now Perm Sect and has no more time?Nigerians need enough commitment from you to be able to trust you. We know that you can not transform the country overnight, but the you can strengthen the institutions for other development to take shape. If you have been courageous enough to prosecute the Oil Markerters, you would have scored a point, what happens to the poor state of roads, the insecurity in the land, etc etc. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm??????????????

    Improved
    standard of living for Nigerians by 2013 is achievable, and i believe President
    Jonathan can deliver on this promise by focussing on rapidly building infrastructure
    to deliberately boost power generation and distribution, improve security,
    boost food production, fix our roads, boost food production, reduce
    unemployment by even 10% and improve health care.

    In coming
    days we need to see Mr President and his team do more to give Nigerians hope
    based on practical action and obvious steps taking by the Jonathan Government
    to address the challenges of Nigeria.
