Nigerian Needs Transformation, Not Change – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday said what Nigeria need was transformation and not change as canvassed by the All Progressive Congress.

The President, who spoke in Benin City as part of his campaign tours, said the political party preaching change refused to attend last year’s National Conference which he noted was meant to bring constitutional changes to the country.

Jonathan while addressing a half filled stadium said his administration believed in encouraging talented youths to develop their skills.

Making a veil reference to APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, President Jonathan told the Peoples Democratic Party supporters to ask him (Buhari) what he did for women and youths during his regime.

He said, “Don’t allow anybody to deceive you. Ask them what they did for the women and youths during their regime.”

“We are talking about transformation and not change. We will move this country forward. We are talking about transformation. We built universities to allow children have access to education. We are supporting young people in acquiring skills and developing their talents. We will build schools and not prisons. Ask those talking about change how many schools were built during their time. ”

Vice President Namadi Sambo said Edo people would soon be plying the railway line from Warri port to Ajaokuta.

Leaders of PDP in the state including Chief Tom Ikimi, Dan Orbih and Captain Hosa Okunbor promised to ensure victory for President Jonathan on February 14.

The Immediate past Commissioner for Lands and Survey in the state, Donald Bob Osikhena, and three other aides of Governor Adams Oshiomhole defected to the PDP at the rally.

There was a mild drama outside the stadium venue of the rally as some supposed PDP supporters grumbled about funds used to mobilize placards carrying youths from neighboring states.
