During the PDP’s 60th National Executive Commiittee meeting which was held in Abuja on Tuesday, President Goodluck Jonathan, while briefing PDP chieftains present assured them that the Federal Government (through the PDP) is firmly in control of the affairs of the country, and that the current state of the country – especially the issue of insecurity occasioned by the activities of the Boko Haram – will soon become a thing of the past.
The president also bragged about the clout which the PDP, being the ruling party, wields in the country, and how their existence has contributed immensely to the sustenance of democracy in the country, and even the continuous survival of the Nigerian republic.
In his words, ““People who want to drown us know that without PDP, probably, the republic would have collapsed… it is the PDP that is handling the affairs of the country; that is stabilising the democracy in the country.”
Meanwhile, on the promises that they made to Nigerians during their campaign for election into office, the president has this to say: “During campaign, our emphasis was more on job creation, power but now what worries us most is security. This is because you must be alive before you will eat food… So, if you are not safe, you can’t even think of hunger because a dead person does not need food. So, security is very, very fundamental.”
