President Goodluck Jonathan has promised Nigerians that his government will make remarkable improvements next year. He urged citizens to be law-abiding and eschew violence assuring that the nation will see changes in infrastructure and security in the coming year.
The president reportedly said this yesterday at the Presidential Christmas Carol held at the Banquet Hall of the presidential villa.
He said, “I urge Nigerians to, in the spirit of Christmas, embrace peace. The wars will not save us. Christ brought peace to free everybody. If we embrace peace, we will progress. We have challenges, but we have everything in place to overcome them.
“In the New Year, we will see the changes in the airports, seaports, power and security as we progress. Surely, 2013 will be a better year for the country,” he assured.
In his sermon, Bishop of Ogbia Diocese, James Oruwari urged Nigerians to love their enemies, adding that God will manifest in the life of any believer who shows love to his neighbours and forgives them.
The president has assured the citizens but skeptics will reiterate that all they get from the Jonathan government are promises and more promises.
