58th Independence Anniversary: Things Will Get Better – GEJ
- by Expresgist
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed optimism that Nigeria will overcome challenges facing her.
In his independence anniversary message to the nation, the former leader urged Nigerians to embrace unity, faith, love and hope.
Jonathan, who handed over to the current Nigeria’s president, admitted that the Nation is facing tough times.
He regretted the recent recognition of the country as the world headquarters for extreme poverty, but hoped for better days.
Below is his independence anniversary message posted 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.
