The Minister of State for Education, Prof. Viola Onwuliri has congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan for emerging the Presidential flag-bearer of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 general elections.
The Minister also expressed gratitude to the leadership of the PDP and delegates for the successful conduct of the party’s national convention and ratification of President Jonathan’s earlier endorsement as the consensus candidate of the party.
Onwuliri described PDP as the only true party that provided its platform for President Jonathan to vigorously pursue his well articulated Transformation Agenda which expectedly has significantly moved the nation to an enviable level in terms of infrastructural and socio-economic development.
She lauded President Jonathan for his uncommon and visible achievements in some critical sectors of the economy such as education, aviation, health, infrastructure, science and technology, oil and gas, industrialization, youth and women empowerment.
Describing Jonathan as the right man for the job, the minister added “What Nigeria needs as a nation is continuity and sustainability of the Transformation programmes currently delivered by President Jonathan.
“The major opposition party that desperately seeks to take over power at the center is simply planning to appropriate the common resources of our dear nation wholly to their personal pockets to the detriment of the Nigerian people.
“Their hidden agenda include terminating the genuine developmental programmes and economic revival President Jonathan has painstakingly initiated. That Nigerians must resist with their votes in 2015” she added.
The Minister reassured that as a PDP state, Imo her home state, which voted massively for the President in 2011, will do it again in 2015 as well as reclaim the state government house.
