Jonathan

Former president, Goodluck Jonathan, has called on leaders of the country to value and respect the interest of every section of the country in order to build a united nation devoid of disenchantment, disunity, agitations and insecurity.

Jonathan made this known when he led members of the 1981 set of the University of Port Harcourt alumni Association on visit to the king of Opume kingdom in Ogbia local government area of Bayelsa State, King Amalate Johnnie Turner.

The former president noted that the country is blessed with both human and natural endowments which can only be enjoyed in a peaceful atmosphere.

He urged leaders to focus more on building a united nation where no one society or tribe should be more valued than the other.

“Leaders should focus more on uniting Nigerians, if one society or group of people or tribe is more valued than the other, then there is bound to be disunity and disenchantment from those who feel not being accorded their rightful respect and value.” Jonathan, speaking further said “the reunion programme is part of activities of the alumni aimed at fostering bond  among old classmates and a platform to deliberate on issues affecting their alma mater and give back to the school and society in general.”
