President Goodluck Jonathan Releases 155-Page Progress Report of his Administration



President Goodluck Jonathan has released a special 155-page document detailing his administration’s progress since he assumed office.

The report titled  “Sure and Steady Transformation” shows the achievement of all the 29 Ministries including that of the Federal Capital Territory and the Federal Executive Council. It highlights the projects undertaken by the Ministries.

In the preface to the document, the Special Adviser on Research and Documentation, Oronto Douglas, said President Jonathan took over the leadership of the country “at a time of considerable political tension in the land”.

He noted that the President had a “purpose of transformation” and was “determined to leave Nigeria a far better place than he met it”.

Here are some pictures and highlights of the progress report as published in the document:

Ministry of Agriculture

“Mr President directed on November 30, 2011 that the cassava flour bread be commercialized. Within 90 days, the commercialization was successfully achieved in February 2012 when UTC, the largest corporate baker of bread introduced the cassava flour bread with 20% cassava flour substitution for wheat flour.”



Ministry of Health

“Rehabilitation and equipping of Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife and the University of Benin Teaching Hospital are completed.”

Ministry of Communication Technology: “Locally produced tablet developed, equivalent to the iPad”

Ministry of Labour & Productivity: “Deft Handling of the Fuel Subsidy Removal Crisis; Negotiation of the National Minimum Wage”

Ministry of Interior: “New investor/tourist friendly visa policy: Nigerian missions to start issuing 1-Year multiple entry visas to deserving visitors/issuance of visa at ports of Entry especially at International airports.”

Ministry of Education: “Development of 4-Year Strategic plan for the development of the education sector.”

Ministry of Power: “Ongoing privatisation of all FGN owned Thermal Generation Stations and all Power Distribution Companies. This process will be completed by October 2012 and will allow for the creation of an electricity market that will lead to a more efficient electrical supply industry and a more vibrant power sector.”

The progress report is already creating a buzz online with many commenting that it does not translate to improved quality of living for the citizens.

For instance, despite the achievements noted in the health sector, Nigerians still fly abroad in large numbers for medical care abroad. The First Lady, Patience Jonathan is currently reported to be receiving medical treatment in Germany.

Brain drain is also still persistent in our society as many people leave the country for education and work, settle down abroad and contribute to the development of other nations rather than Nigeria.

Please take a look at the progress report and share your thoughts.

    “Ministry of Education: “Development of 4-Year Strategic plan for the development of the education sector.” That even reads wrong. Tautology. When will our government become better writers? This is our ministry of education o.
