The president pledged to deliver on his promise of good governance.
President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated Nigerian Muslims for the successful completion of the month-long Ramadan fast.
Mr. Jonathan also thanked all Muslims in the country who responded to his calls and that of other leaders for special prayers during the Ramadan for greater peace, security, and progress in Nigeria.
Mr. Jonathan’s spokesman, Rueben Abati, said the president joins Muslims “and all other patriotic citizens in the pious expectation that God Almighty will hearken to the supplications of the faithful and bless Nigeria even more abundantly with peace, political stability and national prosperity”.
He said President Jonathan seizes the opportunity of the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations to reassure all Nigerians of his resolute commitment to overcoming all distractions and delivering on his promise of good governance and national transformation.
“The President assures Nigerians that his Administration will continue working tirelessly to build on the firm foundations for sustainable national development which it has already established in key areas such as public infrastructure, power supply, roads, transportation, aviation, agriculture, education, healthcare, youth employment and electoral reform.
“President Jonathan also urges other elected officials at all levels of governance to avoid overheating the polity with unnecessary ethnic and political intrigues, and give the highest priority to fulfilling their promises of better living conditions for the electorate first, before turning their minds to plans and permutations for future elections.
“As they celebrate Eid-el-Fitri and the end of Ramadan, the President urges Nigerians to continue to support the present Administration in every possible way to ensure that the country continues to make steady progress towards the successful implementation of its agenda for positive national transformation,” he said.
He wished all Nigerians happy Eid-el-Fitri celebrations.
