Jonathan upbeat at 2014 prospects

30 December 2013, 07:57Augustine Osayande

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan predicted a brighter future for Nigeria in the coming year.

The President made the prediction at the last Sunday of the year Church Service at the Apostolic Faith Church Regional Headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.

He called on Christians to continue to pray for peace and unity of the country, in the midst of daunting challenges.

Jonathan said despite its diversity, Nigeria had remained as one nation.

“Therefore citizens need to shun the barriers created by the diversity and embrace togetherness at all times,” he said.

The President particularly forecast a brighter future for children in the country.

Jonathan promised to continue to do his best and thanked the church for their prayers.

He shared with the congregation more of his great expectations for Nigerians in the New Year, especially the children.

The end of the year service had over 100-man orchestra, with rich accompaniment of musical instruments and a section where the children presented a special rendition for the President.

The General Overseer, Reverend Emmanuel Adeniran, noted in his message that the visit of the President was of great significance.
