Jonathan To Nig's In Bakassi: We'll Not Allow You To Be Victimized,maltreated. by Simulacrum(m): 5:51pm On Jun 24, 2013
Nigeria's President
Goodluck Jonathan has assured Nigerians
still living in the Bakassi Peninsula of his
administration's continuous care, concern
and support for their safety and well-
being. A press statement from Reuben Abati,
the Special Adviser to the President on
Media and Publicity, received here Monday
by PANA, indicated that President
Jonathan gave the assurance late Sunday
in Yaounde, the Cameroonian capital, during his meeting with the Nigerian
Community in that country. President Jonathan dispelled fears that
the Federal Government had abandoned
Nigerians who remained in the peninsula
after its transfer to Cameroon and will
allow them to be victimized or
maltreated. The President expressed the belief that
improvement in bilateral relations
between the Nigerian and Cameroonian
governments, after the judgment of the
International Court of Justice on the
Bakassi dispute, will also have a positive impact on relations between citizens of
both countries. “When countries disagree, their citizens
also tend to disagree. But when they are
friends, their citizens also follow the
same path,' the statement quoted
President Jonathan as telling the
gathering. Responding to other issues raised at the
meeting, President Jonathan said that his
administration’s hard work and
commitment to change had resulted in
significant improvements in growth
indicators such as a drop to single digit inflation, stable exchange rates and
steady GDP growth. These achievements, the President noted,
will gradually translate into
improvements in the country’s human
development indicators in areas such as
health care, education and poverty
reduction. President Jonathan also said that his
administration was doing everything
possible to rapidly improve the power
supply situation in Nigeria, citing the
recent ground-breaking ceremony for the
construction of a new power plant at Zungeru as an example of such ongoing
efforts. The president praised officers and men of
the Nigerian armed forces and security
agencies for their effectiveness in the
ongoing operations to restore full security
and normalcy to the three states where a
state of emergency was recently declared.
