President Jonathan bids Nigerians farewell

28 May 2015, 19:19 Nwafor Justice

President Goodluck Jonathan, in an emotion laden voice bid farewell to Nigerians and thanked them for their support during His six year stay in office. President Jonathan made this remark during an inauguration and farewell service organized by the Christian association of Nigeria at the national Christian center on Sunday.

In his speech, he urged Nigerians to pray for him and his cabinet members who are leaving and also pray for the incoming government.

In his words "I have to thank you and have to ask you to pray for me, my family, my government ministers and so on, as we leave and you should even pray more for the incoming government because we are leaving as private people to manage our private business but they are coming to manage the whole country".

The president also said Nigerians have reason to be happy because Nigeria despite the challenges she has faced is not doing badly when compared to other nations of the world. Meanwhile, the vice president elect, Prof Yemi Osinbajo had preyed for Nigeria earlier before the president spoke. After his prayer he was presented with a pair of the holy Bible for him and his wife by the president of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

The service had my dignitaries in attendance ranging from the political class to clergymen, and members of the diplomatic corp. The judiciary was also ably represented.
