President Goodluck Jonathan has said that Nigerians will appreciate
the good works he has done for the country after he has left office.
Speaking, Tuesday, when he received a delegation from Bayelsa State
who paid him a visit as part of the Christmas celebration, President
Jonathan said he will continue to do his best in order to meet the
expectations of not only Nigerians but especially the people of Bayelsa
According to President Jonathan, the seat of the president of the
country belongs to Nigerians and only them can decide who occupies the
seat at any point in time.
“The new year is full of challenges. Everywhere will be hot from the
2nd of January. I am here by the grace of God and the will of Nigerians.
If I don’t do well the shame will be on you. I will do my best. I don’t
expect praises now. It’s when you leave that people will begin to
compare you with others. I will do my best to address all the challenges
we are having. I will do my best so that when I leave the people will
compare what I have done and what others before me have done.
The seat belongs to the country and it is only the country that can decide who occupies it” he said.
In his remarks, the governor of Bayelsa state, Seriake Dickson said
the delegation was in the state house to show solidarity with the
president and express appreciation to Nigerians for supporting President
Jonathan thus far.
“We are here to show solidarity and to let everybody know that your
people in Bayelsa are with you. It is in the spirit of Christmas that we
are here on behalf of the people of Bayelsa to wish you, your
government and family compliments of the season and a very happy,
prosperous and victorious 2015.
“We bring you prayers and strong message of solidarity. We are here
to thank Nigerians for their support for your government” he said.
