A member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Ezemagu Sunday Nnamdi, has donated the sum of N10,000 to the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan.
In a Press Statement signed by Mr. Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to President Jonathan on Media & Publicity disclosed that the donation was sent before the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) adopted the President yesterday as its sole candidate for the 2015 presidential elections.
In the letter forwarding his donation, the Corps member urged President Jonathan to seek re-election in 2015 and assured him of his continuous support and other patriotic Nigerians.
“Nigerians are behind you. We see your good works in power, transportation, education, housing, ICT, sports, electoral reforms, observation of the principle of federal character and the creation of investment opportunities.
“The insurgents who are trying to destabilize your Administration are enemies of peace and progress. You will surely defeat them,” the corps member wrote.
President Jonathan in his reply to Sunday said that he was deeply touched and encouraged by the immense support his administration continues to receive from young Nigerians from all parts of the country.
His words: “Your gracious gesture is particularly gratifying, coming as it does from one of our nation’s vibrant and gifted youth who are our successor generation and for whom our Administration is unequivocally committed to providing the requisite environment to optimally realize their tremendous creative and productive potentials.
“As I carry on with the task of positively transforming our country for its God-ordained greatness and prosperity, I will continue to count on the goodwill as well as the practical and prayerful support of committed patriots like you.”
The President assured Sunday and other young Nigerians that he will continue to do his best in the service of the nation in keeping with their trust and expectations.
