I am struggling to build my house in my village – Jonathan


President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday said he is struggling to build his house in his Otuoke village, Bayelsa State.
 
He said he might give out the house before he dies if he found out that his children are not ready to live in the village.

Jonathan spoke in Lagos at a fund-raiser for St. Stephens Anglican Deanery and Youth Development Centre, Otuoke.
 
He said, “We are all mortal beings, we are all biological specimen so we will all die but when we die, what will we be remembered for, what will we leave behind?
 
“I use to tell people that even the house I am struggling to build in the village, these days in this global age, how am I sure that my children will even stay in my root. They want to go to West Indies, they want to go to Latin America.
 
“So, I was even joking with people that if I look at the behaviour of my children and if I don’t see any of them that will patronise the village, I will donate my house before I die.”
 
The President urged wealthy Nigerians to make meaningful contributions to the development of poor communities in the country in order to better the lives of the youth and empower them to make useful contributions towards national development.
 
He said the project for the St. Stephens Anglican Deanery and Youth Development Centre was dear to him because he wanted to make sure that the younger generation passed through a better system of education different from the one he experienced while growing up.
 
“I feel the only thing I can do is to make sure that from nursery school to primary and secondary school, there should be a standard educational facility and youth programme, so that it gives opportunity for the younger ones to grow. Even if we die in the next 100 years, people will remember that those before them have something for them,” he said.
 
Present at the occasion were Chairman of Visafone, Jim Ovia; Chairman Capital oil, Chief Ifeanyi Uba; Chairman of A-Z Oil, Chika Okafor, Chairman Arik Air, Joseph Arumemi–Ikhide, Oba Otudeko and Tony Elumelu.
 
Also present were Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Tunde Lemo, ministers, senators, members of the House of Representatives and prominent indigenes of Otuoke

Who is he trying to deceive. You can use N1b to eat and you wanna use N4b for your baby momma's house yet you are struggling to build your house in the village. If I may ask is it a castle or an Empire? This Gej will do/say anything trying to call black white for Nigerians so as to look like he is doing the right thing when obviously he is doing the wrong thing

Jonathan talking wistfully about his village home? Surprise, surprise. The man's mentality and outlook is 100% village-like and agrarian. This is the simple truth.

If GEJ was as corrupt as you haters think, he would not be struggling to build a house any where in the world. Why not wait till any thing evil or fraudulent about him is found before crucifying him. Hating him now will do no good, it will only lead to untimely d**th, before 2015 of course.
