Governments perform better during second term, Nigerians should give me another chance – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday said most governments worldwide perform better during the second term of their administrations.
He said his administration’s case would not be an exception as he was set to do more in the next four years, if re-elected, than what he has achieved in the last four years.
Jonathan spoke during a meeting he had with members of the Kogi State Council of Chiefs at the Chari Maigumeri Barracks, Lokoja, Kogi State.
The President was in the state in continuation of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign rally.

He said public office holders perform better during their second term because they have enough time to settle down and plan for national development.
He said, “Whatever we have done in the last four years, we believe that we will even do more in the next four years.
“Most governments all over the world do better in their second tenure.

“This is because the Presidents are more stable that time, especially in this two terms arrangement.
“They are more stable. They sit down and plan for the country and focus on key areas.”
Jonathan promised that if re-elected, his administration would give more attention to the Ajaokuta Steel Company of Nigeria and ensure that the steel is included into the nation’s rail system.
He added that in the face of reducing crude oil price, his administration would also continue to give more attention to the development of solid minerals and agriculture among others.
He promised to continue to work with the state government to develop Kogi State.
Earlier, the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, had assured the traditional rulers of the present administration’s resolve to restore their constitutional roles.
He said the PDP as a party could not understand why traditional rulers who he described as the custodians of culture and tradition are still being denied of connotations roles.
“Our party leader, President Jonathan, is leading the crusade to bring you back into the constitution,” he told the traditional rulers.
Muazu added that since the traditional rulers’ support in 2011 led to their success, they decided to visit them again for their royal blessings.
Governor Idris Wada of Kogi State said traditional rulers in the state had always been supportive of the present administration’s transformation agenda.
He expressed the belief that they would do more as the elections draw nearer.
The Attah Igala, Idakwo Michael Oboni II, who spoke on behalf of the traditional rulers, asked Jonathan to go ahead with his administration’s laudable projects.
He promised the President that the people of the state, being his second home, would continue to support him.
