President Jonathan re-iterates commitment to credible elections in 2015

15 September 2014, 06:53

Warri  - President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday assured Nigerians of his administration's commitment to free and fair elections in 2015.

Jonathan gave the assurance at the opening of the 2014 Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Warri, Delta.

The president was represented by the state Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan.

“On behalf of President Jonathan, I congratulate the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN).”

“The president is committed to free and fair elections in 2015; he has given us the assurance,” he said.

He noted that religion was vital to the transformation of any society, saying that his administration was partnering with religious bodies in that direction.

“This area had the worst experience in the Niger Delta crisis but prayers helped us to overcome the challenges.”

“I believe that prayers will also help us to resolve the current Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East part of the country,” he said.

Speaking on his own capacity, Uduaghan said that his administration would continue to create an enabling environment for investment.

“We embarked on ‘Delta Beyond Oil’ because we observed that oil cannot sustain the economy because of its volatility.”

“The programme is all about the future of the youth; so, we will ensure there is security, infrastructure and human capacity to adequately attract investors,” he said.
The President of CBCN, Most Rev, Ignatius Kaigama, called for continuous prayers to sustain peace and unity in Nigeria.

He said that Nigeria’s security and other challenges were surmountable.
