Abuja (Sundiata Post) – As Nigeria celebrates her 58th independence, former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has expressed hope that all will be well.
According to him, things are tough but Nigerians are a tough people and the nation will pull through its challenges.
He wrote on his Facebook page:
“As we mark our nation’s 58th Independence Anniversary, my message to Nigerians is that we should keep faith with the vision of our founding fathers of a Nigeria founded on unity, faith, love and hope. I know things are tough, especially with Nigeria recently becoming the world headquarters for extreme poverty.
“But I know even much more that tough times never last but tough people do. And Nigerians are a tough people. Evidence of that abounds in our strength in adversity and most especially amongst our youth who continue to make us proud.
“So if I have to summarise my message to Nigerians on this our 58th Independence Day, I would do it in one sentence: Things will get better. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria and all her people. GEJ.”
