President Goodluck Jonathan promised Nigerians they would continue to enjoy freedom as contained in the law of the country under his leadership, if re-elected. President Jonathan made this pledge at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign in Dutse, Jigawa on Wednesday.
Jonathan made it clear freedom was a good ingredient of democracy which every citizen must enjoy. “Democracy is all about freedom and any democracy without it is not democracy,’’ Jonathan said. The president further urged Nigerians not to lose hope and stay united in spite of the security challenges facing them, assuring that terrorism in Nigeria will be a thing of the past. He asked the people of the state to vote only PDP candidates in the forthcoming election, stating that the party and its members had worked together to develop the country. The president further stated the PDP government had established federal and state universities in Jigawa, and within four years 80 per cent of the state universities in the country were built by PDP-controlled states.
President Jonathan concluded by pledging to support farmers in the state with constant supply of fertiliser and soft loans to boost production, helping move Nigeria forward.
