#NationalConference2014: President Goodluck Jonathan’s remarks at the Inauguration of the National Conference

Remarks by His Excellency, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR

At the Inauguration of the National Conference » Monday, 17th March, 2014

PROTOCOLS

1.  I am delighted to welcome you all to the inauguration of this historic National Conference which promises to be another significant landmark in our efforts to strengthen national unity and consolidate democratic governance in our beloved country.

2.  I also believe that this National Conference is coming at a very appropriate time. Having just celebrated the first centenary of our country, the most compelling task before us, as we move ahead and contemplate what our nation will be at the end of its second century, is to lay a much stronger foundation for faster development.

3.  This we can achieve by building a more inclusive national consensus on the structure and guiding principles of state that will guarantee our emergence as a more united, progressive and prosperous nation.

4. In our history as a political entity, we have experienced highs and lows but have always forged ahead. To my mind, the fact that we have weathered   all storms and continued with the mission of evolving a truly national identity signifies that we are going in the right direction. Read more

2.            In my address to the Nation on the occasion of our 53rdIndependence and Golden Anniversary as a Republic, I announced that in response to the yearnings of our people, we had decided to take on the responsibility of decisively and genuinely exploring the option of a National Conversation.

3.            In furtherance of this objective, Government announced the names of some Nigerians, with wide experience from various disciplines, to form membership of an Advisory Committee to facilitate a most acceptable process that will bring our aspirations to fruition. Our gathering here today is to formally inaugurate this child of necessity, the Advisory Committee to midwife this Conversation.

4.            Permit me to very quickly review the foundational principles that drive our action, and also address a few matters arising. Firstly, let me emphasize that this is a National Project, a sincere and fundamental undertaking, aimed at realistically examining and genuinely resolving, longstanding impediments to our cohesion and harmonious development as a trulyunited Nation.

Governor Fashola

May 29, 2011 – On Tuesday 26th April 2011, a day that will certainly stand out in our political history as a super Tuesday, you humbled me, our Party, the Action Congress of Nigeria and our State House of Assembly candidates by returning all the 40 (forty) candidates presented on the platform of our Party to the House of Assembly and electing me with 1,509,113 votes which now stands as the highest number of votes ever delivered for any candidate in any State in our political history.

On behalf of our Party and my elected colleagues, I thank you all sincerely for your support and the very overwhelming mandate you have handed to us; and we accept it with all the responsibilities that it brings.

I understand the import of that mandate. It is a mandate in support of the continuation of the transformation we have collectively achieved in the last 4 (four) years.

It is a mandate for good governance. It is a mandate for the continuation of the people oriented policies that takes us daily towards the brighter and rewarding future.

Let me assure you all that as leader of the team, I cherish the mandate, I am fully conscious of the import for your hopes and aspirations and I remain as committed today as I was in 2007 to do my very best to remain worthy of this mandate. Read more

“We are watching you, Mr. President.” by Chude Jideonwo (@chude) #lunchwithGEj

Being Text of a Speech Given at the Pre-Inauguration Youth Lunch with President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday, 24 May, 2011.

I was a bit worried when I was asked yesterday to speak about youth corps members and corruption at the same time. Beyond the ‘C’ in both words, how does one link both? But then it hit me. You see, sir, the issues are simple: the National Youth Service Corps, like many Nigerian institutions that are ailing, needs urgent reform. It is the reason The Future Project, in conjunction with EnoughisEnough Nigeria, Sleeves Up, AIESEC and the National Youth Council, has activated the youth-led #ProtectTheCorpers campaign, which is urgently demanding this reform.

But beyond that, the question is: why hasn’t this change come – even after so many years and so many lives lost? Why is it so difficult to restructure a scheme that has been ridden by neglect of its young people, lack of basic amenities from uniforms to water in camp, a complete inability to provide these young people with genuine learning opportunities and a total collapse of the original intent of this programme to forge unity? Sir, it is corruption. People who benefit from this corrupt, inept system will fight tooth and nail, rain and shine to ensure that they continue to plunder the commonwealth. They cannot want change, they do not want change, and they never will. And now sir, these corrupt people are part of this government… your government, and therefore your responsibility.

Therefore, the times call for you, dear sir, to make a sharp break from the past and impress us – and we are not easy to impress – with the sheer strength of character to fundamentally restructure our state of affairs. Good intentions are great, a positive disposition is desirable, and your personal credibility is not in doubt, but those cannot dislodge such a fundamentally flawed system.

Sir, you have a prime opportunity to be a hero and change this system – for good – in a way your predecessors have sadly been incapable of.

We will be watching sir. But we won’t just watch, we will demand it, and we will work to make sure that we get it. We will hold you to every one of your promises.

God keep you sir, and God bless Nigeria.
