news :- “PDP Will Reclaim Power In 2019” – Jonathan Speaks At PDP Convention

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on
Saturday inAbuja announced that the
Peoples Democratic Party had returned
from limbo and would reclaim power in
2019.

Jonathan asserted this in his address at the
party’s a special national convention. He
said that the party’s achievements while in
power would rekindle the confidence of
the electorate to vote it back in power in
the 2019 general elections.

“The party is indeed back to reclaim its
prime position as the party to lead Nigeria
to greatness. “As a human institution, we
cannot claim to be perfect and as a political
party, our accomplishments up to 2015 are
clear for every Nigerian to see,’’ he said.

According to Jonathan, the achievements of
the party while in power are ample
evidence to demonstrate that PDP is a party
of vision and accomplishments.

Highlighting achievements of the party, he
said that elections conducted from 2011 by
the government controlled by PDP met
globally-accepted standard. “We succeeded
in doing that because of the leverage and
the autonomy we gave to the Independent
National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“PDP is a party that wants to place Nigeria
in a position to compete favourably with
other countries,’’he said.

On the economy, the former president said
that PDP provided focused leadership
through institutional and sectoral reforms
which impacted positively on the country,
especially in the last four years of our
tenure.

“We tamed inflation at a single digit,
maintained price stability, and drove the
economy to become thelargest in Africa.
“We also made Nigeria to be the number
one foreign direct investment destination
in the continent,’’ he said.

According to him, in 2012, PDP ensured
that prices of food remained stable in spite
of flood which affected 50 per cent of
farmlands along the flood plains of river
Niger and Benue.

Jonathan said that the country was able to
regain its goodwill internationally because
the PDP pursued programmes and policies
that were not only rewarding but were
copied by other countries across the globe.

“We can recall that our agricultural
transformation agenda transformed key
agricultural value chains, boosted local
production and created a new generation of
young commercial farmers.

“The introduction of electronic wallet
checked corrupt practices in the
distribution of fertilizer andenabled
farmers to get fertilizer like all other agro
inputs.

“In the same vein, the YouWin programme
empowered a crop of young Nigerians to go
into entrepreneurship and in turn
employed others,’’ he said.

Jonathan said that though his
administration did not block all the
loopholes, it came up with strong
innovations to fight corruption.

According
to him, we introduced the Bank
Verification Number (BVN) and the
Treasury Single Account (TSA) which has
helped to reduce corruption.

“Government is run by policies, the
creative thinking, brains in the executive
council and in the civil servants were
harnessed to get to where we are. “If
elected in 2019, PDP will fight poverty and
ensure that food prices are reduced,’’ he
added, andurged Nigerians to partner the
party to restore good life in the co
