By Daniel Idonor

ABUJA—THE Acting President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday ordered an immediate end to the series of congratulatory advert placements in some national dailies, warning against the use of public funds on such an extravagant enterprise.

He asked Nigerians to stop placing congratulatory adverts in the media over his assumption of office as Acting President.

This was contained in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the Acting President, Mr Ima Niboro.

“The Acting President has similarly placed a ban on solidarity visits. He said the nation is at a critical juncture where we must begin to focus on solutions to the daunting challenges that confront us”, the statement noted.

He described as invaluable, the wise counsel and suggestion by Nigerians on moving the nation forward. “Their advice continues to bring value to governance in our country, and such counsel remains indispensable as we forge ahead to attaining the Nigeria we have all wished for,” he said.
