Lagos - The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) has thrown its weight behind President Goodluck Jonathan is his quest for re-election in next month’s poll.

Dr Ngozi Olejeme, the NSITF Chairperson, said Jonathan had demonstrated what a determined and committed leadership can do to bring about political, social and economic progress and development.

Olejeme told media in Abuja after the inauguration of the Presidential Campaign Organization that Jonathan, “within the short period in power, healed the wounds of alienation and marginalization and also restored hope to many who had been in despair.”

She praised Jonathan for “giving attention to various issues threatening the unity of the nation, diversifying the nation’s export, creating a viable educational system, turning around the health sector and leading Nigerians out of economic misery and political paralysis.”

She also commended Jonathan for guaranteeing majority of Nigerians legitimate means of livelihood, raising the quality of life, promoting scientific and technological knowledge and building sound political institutions.

“Dr Goodluck Jonathan is a creative, industrious and pro-people president.
He is intelligent, courageous and principled. As governor of Bayelsa State, he worked hard to implement his party’s cardinal goals. As vice president, he contributed greatly to the country’s economic, social, political and advancement,” Olejeme said.

She added, “President Jonathan is committed towards enhancing security generally and ensuring constant electricity delivery to all. Nigerians will have a bountiful harvest in Jonathan’s second term.”
