From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, President Goodluck Johnathan sent a warning message home to politicians criticizing his trip out of Nigeria when the country is experiencing series of bomb attacks from Boko haram group
Speaking in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he said his administration would not allow them to sacrifice the corporate existence of the country on the altar of personal political ambitions. “One of the problems we have is that some Nigerians play politics with everything, but we cannot destroy our country because of personal political ambitions.”
Jonathan denounced the incessant and often unjustifiable criticism of his administration, noting that much of the criticisms were based on lies.
“We now have a constitutional democracy and no one can stay in office forever. It will, therefore, be best for our nation if we all support whoever is there for the development of the country, instead of trying to pull him down by all means,” he while responding to comments and questions by Nigerians in Brazil on the current state of affairs in Nigeria.
He assured the gathering that the Federal Government was working very hard to overcome Nigeria’s current security challenges.
He spoke further: “We have challenges, but they are not insurmountable. We remain fully focused and committed to national development in spite of sponsored lies against this administration.
“We are ready to work together with all of our people to move the country forward. We will work even harder to place concrete realities on the ground that will further prove our sincerity and commitment to all Nigerians”.~Compass..
