World Leaders Gather For Nuclear Security Summit 2014President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday said that the Federal Government was determined to take development to all parts of the country and asked the people of Rivers to massively vote for the PDP.

Jonathan said this while addressing the PDP presidential rally in Port Harcourt.

He said his administration had transformed the education sector by establishing Federal universities in states that had none.

” In our development, every part of Nigeria must be taken along .

” You will agree with me that when we looked at university education, we insisted that Federal Government must make sure that all Nigerian youths have the opportunity for university education, we did not divide north or south.

“We made sure that all the states that had no federal universities, got federal universities and that is our focus.”

Jonathan urged Rivers people to vote for him and Vice President Sambo, the party’s governorship candidate in the state, to enjoy democracy dividends.

‘’ I can reassure that just work with us. Vote for us on Feb. 14 and on Feb. 28 for Wike and Ipalibo Banigo, and definitely, we must leave indelible prints in Rivers State.

‘’ Luckily, we have been challenged that we have not done anything. We must do something.’’

Addressing party faithfuls, First lady, Dame Patience Jonathan urged Rivers people to vote for the PDP because the party belonged to the state.

She also said PDP was the only party that gave women affirmative right and gender friendly.

“Rivers is PDP state and we have come back to take back our mandate.

” To my constituency, the women constituency, PDP is the only party that gave women 35 percent affirmative action. PDP is the only party that gave women attention.

“PDP is the only party that knows that women are intelligent, honest and have what it takes to develop this country.’’

Former Super Eagles Captain, Joseph Yobo, urged the people to vote for President Jonathan to move the country forward.

“Vote and support President Goodluck Jonathan . He is the only President that can lead us in a unified manner,’’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Even if we may not have seen the infrastructure as much as it would be expected, but it will only take ones inability to appreciate progress to say that the administration is lacking behind. First, to be able to do an assessment of progress, it is appropriate that you make a comparative analysis of the past, the present a considerable potentiality of the future. What is the state of any of the major federal roads in Nigeria? Is there work in progress? Are some of them over 80% completed? Are negotiations for award of expansion made on some of them? Has award or concessions been made in some cases? Truth is that as long as you are not static, you are making progress………………..keep doing it presido,
