President Goodluck Jonathan has promised that he would continue to give Nigerian youths opportunities to serve their country. The president who made this known on Sunday at an interactive session tagged ‘Meet The President’, which was attended by an estimated 5,000 youths and members of the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos.
“The only thing that made me to become the President of Nigeria is because I went to school. That was why we made it a priority to establish 12 new universities in the past five years.
“The Asian Tigers (Malaysia, Indonesia and so on) are great because of small and medium enterprises. It is our mission to create new millionaires among you all through various youth empowerment policies,” the President said.
Boasting that only the states govern by PDP have been exceptional in creating the infrastructure to enable the growth of small businesses.
“The only states that have built first class airports are the PDP states. Even in presidential lodges across the country, only those of PDP states are in superb state.
“Within this space of time, nobody has intervened in Education, Agriculture and Healthcare more than this government.”
“At the federal level we have relatively high number of young people. My future administration will have even more,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State PDP Governorship Candidate, Jimi Agbaje, who was also at the event, told the youths that the “best option” for Nigeria was Goodluck Jonathan.
