Reuben Abati spoke on a radio program.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media, Rueben Abati, has called for the continuous support and understanding of Nigerians for President Goodluck Jonathan in his efforts to transform the economy and improve the living condition of Nigerians.
Mr. Abati, who featured on a radio programme on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria on Tuesday, said Mr. Jonathan has promised Nigerians that he will not be distracted by “all kinds of persons in the society trying to distract this administration”.
“His (Mr. Jonathan’s) commitment is to ensure that the lives of Nigerians are truly transformed and Nigerians have already witnessed this transformation, the evidence is well provided in the mid-term report and in the testimony of many Nigerians who are supportive of this administration,” Mr. Abati said.
The spokesperson also said the Jonathan administration “is on course and we should continue to support our country because it is the only country we all have.
“We all have the responsibility to work to make it to continue to grow on a sustainable basis.”
Mr. Abati also expressed the president’s felicitation with Nigerians for the Eid-el-Fitri festival to mark the end of Ramadan.
The federal government has already declared Thursday and Friday as public holidays to mark the festival.
