President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday promised Nigerians that his administration would perform better in 2013 and improve on their welfare in all aspects.
The President gave the assurance while speaking shortly after he had laid the foundation stone of the Living Faith Foundation’s Bible College in Kaduna.
“Let me assure all of you and indeed all Nigerians that 2013 will be better for us than 2012 in all aspects of the nation’s history. The New Year shall be better for us in terms of job creation, wealth creation and improved security among others,” the president told the worshippers.
President Jonathan urged Nigerians not to lose hope because he and members of his team had resolved to make significant changes in the country during his tenure.
He said although the changes might seem to be slow in coming because of the tedious processes involved, they would soon be manifesting.
He said he was aware that people found it difficult to continue to believe the government because of the challenges they are facing.
“Sometimes, challenges make people doubt the sincerity of government, but I am confident that God knows everything,” he said.
The president also spoke about power generation in Nigeria and said that his administration is working hard to alleviate the difficulties businesses and people face from the epileptic power situation in the country.
“Small scale businesses such as barbing salons cannot continue to buy generators to operate and break even. My wish is for Nigerians not to have generating sets.”
He also said that said although the changes in the country might seem to be slow because of the tedious processes involved, they would soon be manifesting in forms of better well-being for the people.
