greater that the United States of America through hard work and
patriotism and not allowing self imposed regional leaders divide us

selfish desires and not even the development for the regions they

“We are supporting this government based on an independent assessment

achievements so far made by this administration and also support it to
achieve more. On this note, we urge Nigerians, especially registered
voters to study and follow the policies and achievements of the
Goodluck Jonathan administration to understand where it is going
rather than criticize without adequate information”, he added.
