2016: Make it a turning point to embrace each other – GEJ
By; Jacob Onjewu Dickson
Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has charged Nigerians to use the New Year to embrace each other and work as a team to advance the country.
He gave the advice in a New Year message in which he was optimistic that Nigeria would overcome its present challenges.
“Having found ourselves as Nigerians by the divine providence of God, let us celebrate our Nigerianess and make 2016 our turning point year in which we embrace each other and work as a team to advance the frontiers of Nigeria in every field of human endeavour.
“On behalf of my family and I, I would like to wish all Nigerians a Happy New Year. We are all brothers and sisters born from the womb of one Nigeria and as I have said previously, we would not be Nigerians if God did not will it. In the 80s, our people sang and danced to the hit song ‘Nigeria go survive’.
“I am convinced that in 2016, Nigeria will not only survive, she will also thrive and help drive the peace, prosperity and unity of all her people. This is something we can all look forward to in the New Year and beyond. May God bless you and may God bless Nigeria,” the ex President said.
