A non-government agency, The Concerned Advocacy for Good Governance (CAGG) has scored the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan high on the economic growth and high employment rate the country is witnessing.

Mr.Olusegun Bamgbose who represented the group who also is the National Coordinator of the same group gave the Federal Government thumbs-up while addressing newsmen in Aba today saying the inflation has successfully been kept under control by the current administration as services rendered and goods are having stable rates and the states now has more resources at their disposal.

Also Bamgbose commended the administration for the initiation of the Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (You WIN); the programme responsible for the mass creation of jobs for Nigerians as unemployment in the country has reduced to some level and if the programme is properly managed youth unemployment will be a thing of past in Nigeria, he concluded.

On the issue of making Nigerians not feel the pinch of the fuel subsidy removal, he said President Jonathan promised to provide vehicles which will be taken to the whole states in the federation and true to his words, he fulfilled that promise to cushion the effects of the removal.

Though, Bamgbose pointed out that the greatest challenge plaguing the Jonathan’s administration is the lack of security in the whole country as security has been porous thereby giving way to several lapses which cost the loss of many lives in the country, he however pleaded with the President Jonathan to do something about the state of insecurity in the country so as to further strengthen the economy of Nigeria.
